MPs 11% Rise A Kick In Teeth

Thursday, July 11, 2013

An 11% Rise Would Be A Kick In The Teeth For The Millions Of Workers Who Are The Victims Of Policies MPs Are Responsible For Says GMB

The principle of MPs getting a decent salary is not an issue for what is an important job and they should only have one job says GMB

GMB commented on the reported 11% pay increase for MPs.

Paul Kenny, GMB General Secretary, said “The principle of MPs getting a decent salary is not an issue. MPs should be paid properly for what is an important job and they should only have one job.

In the current circumstances, where these same MPs are responsible for policies which have led to pay freezes and a fall in living standards, an 11% rise would be a kick in the teeth for the millions of workers who are the victims of their policies."
