Survey finds that 82 percent of Irish people want the Irish Government
to introduce a tax on the rich.
The poll was carried out on behalf of the Community Platform which includes Age Action Ireland
, the Traveler Movement and the Simon Community.
The Community Platform is now calling for a wealth tax to be imposed on those who have assets of more than over €1 million or have incomes of over €100,000.
Just one percent of tax could generate over €500 million for the Exchequer.
