  • Budget 2015: CoF suggestion on a 'Stairway to income equality' » News » Income Equality » Issues » Claiming our Future
    Irish pay ratio in a first step to build awareness about levels of income inequality in Irish forms Claiming our Future are commissioning research to ascertain the different rations in different sectors of the Irish economy we also intend pursuing legislation to require firms to publicly quote pay ratios as a condition of eligibility to compete for government contracts The rising inequality of recent times is the product of a cultural and political shift from one that once operated with a series of implicit social norms about what was acceptable behaviour and which worked to impose a kind of natural limit at the top to one that now defers too easily to wealth and power We believe public awareness about such pay ratios is a powerful tool to reactivate a shame gene that once worked to prevent excessive abuse by the economically powerful Redistributive tools Various campaigns have called for a progressive income tax on income above ten times the minimum wage Hawkins 1996 Pizzigati 2010 The Ten Times Rule still allows plenty of room for market incentives but restrains winner take all markets where the winners get extraordinary levels of income not because of the value they contribute but simply because of the shear power they exert in the market OECD 2014 argue the rich got richer partly because of a dramatic reduction in the higher marginal income tax rates and reduced wealth or capital gains taxes in a manner that particularly benefit the top of the income distribution The Irish taxation debate is still focused on a low tax low public services model Our counter argument is for not only maintaining but increasing tax revenues to invest in social expenditure Multipliers from public investments work as a greater stimulus to economic growth and are a longer term investment in a more sustainable recovery Higher taxes on excessively high incomes and wealth can promote greater income equality Research by Tasc NERI and SJI stresses the regressive nature of many income tax reduction options In short lower income households see no benefits from a wider standard band or a reduction in the higher rate Lower paid workers see some benefit from reductions in lower rate and widening the personal tax credit but these measures offer maximum benefit to those on higher incomes Reductions in the USC rate will benefit everyone paying the USC but will absolutely benefit those on higher incomes more The only tax reduction that would progressively benefit the lower income household more than the higher income household is reduction in the consumption tax VAT A 1 reduction in VAT would cost in the order of 350 per annum and would go directly to ease the cost of living for everyone in work and out of work While the Budget 2015 debate pushes for tax reductions COF argue that not only do we need to retain tax revenues to invest in public services we should in fact be pursuing progressive tax options that help redistribute excessive incomes of
