23,000 female workers are being paid lower rates because they left jobs before 1994 to care for their children.
The date of their departure means they miss out on around €1,500 a year.
They’re also denied the full 5 Euro increase announced in Tuesday’s Budget.
But Minister Paschal Donohoe says he didn’t offer a solution.
