so according to your upper estimate each job costs €83,333 per year? Hardly great value is it?
What are you talking about?
Firstly, these are not my estimates, I am merely extrapolating the figures that have been touted.
Secondly, capital spending is not a jobs creation program, the hint is in the name.
Furthermore, in view of the fact that most of the cuts will impact on non jobs intensive, capital projects such as Metro North (which requires far fewer builders than for instance an extension to a school) in fact these cuts will likely result in the non creation (not loss as you claim) of 8 jobs per €1m at a cost of €125,000 per job.
Again, where are you getting the notion that these are my estimates? The document I have linked to has been produced by the Department of Finance - why would they make up lies about this?
