Job Creation Campaign - Time for Action

In January and February 1,000 people lost their jobs every day. Unemployment is spiraling out of control. The government needs a three-year plan to hold on to or create the 1,000 jobs a day that are being lost. This must include stopping job losses, creating new jobs, keeping people in education and stimulating consumer spending.

Sinn Féin held a day of action in towns and cities across the country on Saturday March 14th and over the coming weeks will be demanding action on the unemployment crisis. The day marked the beginning of a series of actions and launches around Sinn Féin’s proposals to get Ireland back towork, develop the all-island economy, public sector spending and public finance savings. Sinn Fein Vice President Mary Lou McDonald Dublin MEP joined party activists and representatives outside the GPO on O’Connell Street Dublin where they delivered thousands of leaflets with the call – Time for Action. A series of actions also took place across the capital city and throughout the country.
