Lower Taxes, Less Waste,
More Transparency

Championing Value For Money From Every Tax Dollar

Give taxpayers a say on how much MPs are paid

john_key.jpgMP's pay should be fair

John Key says that he disagrees with the Remuneration Authority's decision to give backbench MP's a 5.5% hike in pay to $158,000. But he's been saying that each of the last four years there's been a hike.

Enough talk - time for action

Even with inflation running at close to zero,  backbench MPs got a $8,500 boost. We say its time for the Government to appoint a representative for taxpayers onto the Remuneration Authority to resist these enormous annual pay hikes.

Sign our petition asking John Key to appoint a representative for taxpayers' onto the Remuneration Authority.
