Hiring Freeze

Does Ireland need its own Frozen for Their Future Act? It's a radical suggestion that new college graduates be cryogenically frozen until the job market improves.

I know, I know: you're thinking that's a crazy idea. One right up there with loo-laa proposals for the government to pay the banks billions of borrowed euro in the midst of a vicious recession for properties that are then demolished and turned back into fields. I mean, come on, you couldn't make this stuff up.

Okay, maybe The Onion could.

  1. Its a sensible idea apart from one small detail. New graduates are generally more flexible, more hard-working and, lets be honest, cheaper. So it makes more sense to freeze the older guys till the labour market improves. People like you and me, Gerard.
