Donegal TD Thomas Pringle calls on the government to scrap JobPath

A Donegal TD is calling on the government to scrap the Jobpath programme claiming that the amount spent on it isn’t justified.

Independent Deputy Thomas Pringle is calling for the program to go based on figures published by the Department of Employment Affairs and Social protection.

The report dated from 2015, when the programme was implemented, shows that Jobpath only helped 2% of people gain full time employment.

Deputy Pringle says that the funds could be used a lot more effectivley elsewhere.
