National Minimum Wage (Protection of Employee Tips) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (18 Jun 2019)

David Stanton: I have listened for an hour and half to everybody and have not said one word. The Green Party stated legislation which provides for enforcement in this specific issue would be helpful for a marginal number of cases. I note that many colleagues have said this is not widespread. I think I heard a colleague from Kerry saying it did not happen in that county at all. I do not know whether that...

John Brady: Neither does climate change.

National Minimum Wage (Protection of Employee Tips) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (18 Jun 2019)

David Stanton: The Green Party went on to argue that it is unlikely that the State could provide the level of inspection required for enforcement to be effective. The Minister, Deputy Regina Doherty, is proposing a better alternative. She wants to put forward a payment of wages (amendment) Bill. She wants to bring transparency in the form of prominently displayed notices in business premises. On that we...

National Minimum Wage (Protection of Employee Tips) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (18 Jun 2019)

David Stanton: It will be brought here within days. We cannot support this Private Member's Bill but we will introduce practical, workable measures to tackle the issue. The debate has been useful and helpful. I urge colleagues to read the report of the Low Pay Commission. It is independent and very well done. More work needs to be done in this area. The debate was useful. The Government wants to...

National Minimum Wage (Protection of Employee Tips) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (18 Jun 2019)

Pearse Doherty: I have listened to the Minister of State, Deputy Stanton, and the Minister, Deputy Regina Doherty. It never surprises me how Fine Gael can come up with ways to scupper a Bill that has broad support, has passed in the Seanad and is supported by sectors and workers, the trade union movement and a number of organisations in Galway and Cork, to mention a few. I am struck by the lengths to which...

National Minimum Wage (Protection of Employee Tips) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (18 Jun 2019)

David Cullinane: The only thing on which I agree with the Minister of State, Deputy Stanton, is that this was a good debate. The problem is that the people whom this Bill is intended to help do not need debate. They need support. They need the politicians to do their job. A minority of employers are unscrupulous in taking people's tips and using them to supplement very low pay or to bolster their profits....

National Minimum Wage (Protection of Employee Tips) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (18 Jun 2019)

David Cullinane: Hear, hear.

National Minimum Wage (Protection of Employee Tips) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (18 Jun 2019)

Denise Mitchell: If it is voluntary, the only people who will take the legislation seriously are those restaurants and hotels that are good employers. They are not the people whose behaviour we are trying to change with this Bill. We are concerned with those bad employers who simply will not bother with voluntary codes. The Government's proposal also only prohibits employers putting tips towards their...

National Minimum Wage (Protection of Employee Tips) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (18 Jun 2019)

Pat Buckley: I also welcome the opportunity to contribute to the debate. I congratulate Senator Gavan and commend the support of the those in the Seanad. I welcome all of those in the Visitors Gallery. The hospitality sector is a tough area to work in. We know as public representatives something of what is involved in dealing with people but it is extremely tough, however, in the food and drinks...

National Minimum Wage (Protection of Employee Tips) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (18 Jun 2019)

David Stanton: I have listened carefully to the debate. I commend Sinn Féin and Senator Gavan for bringing forward this legislation. It has been a very good, important and interesting debate. There is no doubt that we all want to assist low paid workers. The Government has a strong record in that regard. There are, however, ways and means of achieving that aim and, unfortunately, this Bill is not...

National Minimum Wage (Protection of Employee Tips) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (18 Jun 2019)

Séamus Healy: I have been a lifelong trade unionist. The first day I went to work, I joined the union. I have been a member of the Irish Transport and General Workers Union, now called SIPTU - a union of which my late father was a founder member in Clonmel in 1934. I was a member of the Federation of Rural Workers and the Amalgamated Transport and General Workers Union, now called Unite. I was a...

National Minimum Wage (Protection of Employee Tips) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (18 Jun 2019)

Denise Mitchell: I thank Senator Gavan for bringing forward this important legislation. The situation in Ireland is that if the Minister of State, Deputy Stanton, or I go to a restaurant or café and leave a tip for the staff who serve us, there is no guarantee that tip will go to the staff. It could end up in the business owner's pocket and that is wrong. We all know that hospitality workers are some of...
