Over paid and over here

Dubliner’s are amongst the highest paid workers in the world according to a survey by Swiss Bank UBS.

The Consumers’ Association of Ireland earlier this month published some pretty damming research about the difference in the cost of services between North and South. They claim many services carried out in Northern Ireland are on average between 25% and 45% cheaper than the same services in the Republic.

It found the cost of a car service in Belfast was on average 45% cheaper than a similar service in Dublin, while the cost of a gas boiler service was 33% more expensive in Dublin.

There were similar disparities found in the cost of dental, driving instruction and chiropractor services.

This is a real opportunity for entrepreneurs in the regions outside Dublin, North and South.
