ABSTRACT
IT'S A start,' said everyone, at the news of the RTÉ pay cuts this week - at least at first. The numbers certainly looked and felt agreeably chunky. There's Ryan Tubridy's salary, cut from €723,000 to €495,000! Marian Finucane down to €295,000! Could we be reining in this bubble-era behemoth at long last? RTÉ did its best to present it as a good news story. We're trimming the fat, it said, heading for break-even, cutting pay by 30% as promised. Never mind the substance, feel the quality of the gesture. The cuts quickly lost all significance, though, viewed against the bloated salaries these people still take home.
