Since the instigation on the minimum wage & working time regulations etc the role of the Agricultural Wages Board should be abolished.
The Agricultural sector have to pay wages as set by the terms and conditions of this board, and cannot employ anyone on the open market as other businesses can. Its not right and its certainly not fair
Why does this idea matter?
Anyone employing personel in agriculture has to abide by a set of guidlines that are more stringent than any other business , there should be one rule for all. The Agricultural Wages Board harks back to another age., agriculture is now a business like any other and should be able to set wages in the market place and not be dictated to by the Agricultural wages board
