The payrise for Super Junior Ministers has been described as a “bad look”

New legislation means an extra 16 thousand euro will be available to three members of government instead of two.

The payment will be added on top of the €124,000 salary that Minister receive already.

The move has been criticised following the “hand claps” that frontline workers are getting in return for their work during the pandemic.

The Independent’s Ireland Editor Fionnan Sheahan says the salary top up doesn’t come across well.
