Petition: Say no to pay rises for Members of Parliament

Members of Parliament are set to get a hefty pay rise this year, despite the fact they are already paid more than the vast majority of New Zealanders. At a time when the cost of living is making it difficult for families to get by, and Government debt and spending is out of control, it is simply unfair and irresponsible for politicians to get a pay rise. Politicians must lead by example when calling on the public sector to reduce spending by doing the same for themselves. Sign the petition saying no to pay rises for Members of Parliament below:

 

"I call on all Members of Parliament to legislate a pay freeze for themselves until the cost-of-living crisis is over and the government is back in surplus."
