Dick move to demand Jacinda take a pay cut…
The Prime Minister won’t rule out taking a pay cut alongside her Cabinet Ministers and other MPs, as pressure mounts on them to “feel the economic impact” of COVID-19 that other Kiwis already have.
Magic Talk host Ryan Bridge launched a petition on Monday, imploring New Zealand’s MPs to take a voluntary pay cut of 20 percent for the next three months, with the possibility of extending that another three months pending a review.
Bridge says it’s an appropriate response to the thousands of New Zealanders who have lost jobs or taken pay cuts in the weeks since coronavirus first wrought havoc on our economy.
“Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and other Government MPs have stated publicly that ‘we are all in this together’. This seems a mere platitude,” he wrote.
…to her credit, Jacinda hasn’t ruled out taking a pay cut during the pandemic to show solidarity with those in lockdown, which is extraordinary because as far as I’m concerned, she deserves double her pay for the incredible leadership she has shown during this event!
That she’s considering it is only a reminder of what a fucking legend she is!
