I wouldn't like to put it to the test. Claim away,  but don't let on to anyone

COVID-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment Confirmation
Quote
Confirm your eligibility with us by 13 July
If you are currently in receipt of the COVID-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment we now need you to confirm your continued entitlement to this payment.

If you don’t confirm your payment may be affected.

To continue receiving this payment you must be:
Fully unemployed - permanently or temporarily as a result of COVID-19
Or, if self-employed , your trading income has been significantly reduced
Living in the Republic of Ireland


So we're still allowed to work and claim.

But missing the point,that one death is too many.

The issue with Covid is that is is extremely contagious,more so than the flu.

It is also far more severe IF you happen to get it and there is more evidence that (if you survive it) your kidneys and lungs will have permanent damage.

The main concern will be come the winter we will have the flu making a reappearance on top of Covid19.

So you think no screen and no mask are the way to go ?

Think again.

You reckon I know nothing about dispatchers ? Is it not the case that they take 15 % commisiin from drivers ?  Is it not the case that FN offered 50 % discount to madical staff ? Is it not the case that traditional dispatchers  told you what to wear ie ( uniforms) what to charge ( discounts) and actually DISCIPLINED drivers by knocking them off the system if the gave back heavily discounted work ?is it not accepted by most drivers that work went out the back door  to cronies,is it not the case that one such dispatch operater blackmailed drivers by blocking them getting insurance if they didnt subscribe to his union,the list goes on

Yer only hearing all this gossip from the ranks.
You know nothing about it.
Your just the fool on the rank only good for taking people home.



That is the whole idea of working as a taxi. :P

what do you do? bring them for dinner, or go clubbing with them or something?

That’s the difference when you work with a dispatch company.
So much other work than just taking people home like you.
Who brings the punters into the City, Airport, train station.
Who do you think services the hotels, multi national companies, corporate accounts, HSE accounts
As I said yer only good for taking people home.


I work 7 days a week, day and night. I only ever sit at a rank early on weekend nights.
I do hospital runs, runs from nursing homes, have regulars, have plenty of work from my website. do runs all over the country, airport runs etc and guess what all the money I take in goes to me, i don't hand any of it over to freenow.

Hence that’s why you have to work 7 days a week.
Making jack on the rank



who said I have to work as much as I do? I just do because I probably wont be in this game in a few years so im making as much as I can now. I will be running other businesses while you and the rest of the freenow workers are walking around with placards protesting about freenow taking 50% from ye.
