Petition: Say no to pay rises for Members of Parliament

Members of Parliament are getting ready to receive a $17,239 pay hike while hundreds of thousands of families earning less than them struggle to pay the bills. With inflation still driving up the cost of living, Government debt spiralling out of control, and an urgent need to rein in spending, it is simply not the time for politician pay hikes. Reaching deeper into your pocket to line theirs is completely out of touch. 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."
