Farmer defends €50 JobBridge offer for a 30-hour week collecting potatoes

A FARMER has advertised for an internship on the controversial JobBridge Scheme – to gather potatoes. Patrick Doherty says the successful candidate for the position will be required to work 30 hours per week to receive an extra €50 on top of their dole.

The ‘job’ at Doherty Potatoes Limited has been criticised by those who think the scheme should be scrapped.
