Protest at Irish Restaurant Awards by low paid migrant workers

Brilliant flashmob protest here by Irish restaurant workers in Dublin at the swanky Irish Restaurant Awards, where the employers have been lobbying to reduce the low pay they already receive. Organised by the trade union SIPTU - good on them!

  1. I thought this protest hit the right tone - it was peaceful, targeted, got its message across in a firm way without upsetting or obstructing anyone. The effect? It has certainly split the RAI - many restaurant owners, including many of their patrons, do not wish to be associated with establishments that are treating employees unfairly.
