TASC Conversations with Mary Lou McDonald, TD - 26 April 2021
This is the latest in a series of TASC Conversations with Decision Makers. The aim of this series is to engage with key policymakers concerning critical social and economic policy issues in an open, public dialogue.
For our next conversation in the series we are delighted to be joined by Mary Lou McDonald , TD and Leader of Sinn Féin.
Deputy McDonald will address some of the issues below:
- how should the government address unemployment rates, considering the ESRI's prediction that unemployment rates will not return to pre-pandemic levels until 2023?
- how can the government decrease levels of low paid workers, who have been amongst the hardest hit by the crisis? Many of those jobs in retail, wholesale, and accommodation will not come back. How should the government and business sectors respond?
- finally, how can the government and political parties in general give hope to younger generations, given the current context?
Please join us for this exciting virtual event on
Monday 26 April 2021
