Suzanne Breen with a piece on the lingering differential between Catholic and Protestant unemployment rates. In a companion article in The Village she quotes Diane Dodds complaint about the high levels of Catholics employed in certain jobs, mostly those requiring lower skill sets – ‘96% of security and cleaning staff are Catholic’. However, the differential appears to reverse as the skills and pay rise – ‘Catholics are seriously under-represented among the Royal’s dental (16%) and medical (32%) staff’.
