LETTER: Freeze wages of $60k plus

"Because when everyone got the internet and power subsidies, all government workers got an unintended pay rise."

Dear Editor,

New Zealand has without question saved us from a pandemic outbreak while (PM Mark) Brown and his cronies were begging for the borders to be opened last June 2020, then October, and then in December.

If Mr Brown wants to follow the lead of New Zealand, he should note that this week that country announced a wage freeze on public servants earning over $60,000 and $100,000 a year. 

In fact, they reckon the wage raise they just gave has seen jobs increase. So, let’s do the math for Mr Brown: freeze those public servants earning $60k and $100k jobs here in the Cooks…that’s all of his mates in Cabinet and all his heads of ministry, and then increase the minimum wage.

That’s right, here in our paradise they freeze the minimum wage at an unliveable $8 an hour, forcing people to seek employment overseas – and then gave themselves a pay rise.

That’s right team, gave themselves a pay rise. Because when everyone got the internet and power subsidies, all government workers got an unintended pay rise.

I’m now enjoying watching the fat cat tourism benefactors complaining about the cost of Business Class as they book their holidays to New Zealand and gloating about their booked flights, now that Mark and his CIP and business cronies have opened up the border, which will see returns both in their wallets and to the lifestyle they are used to.

Get ready for him and his mates to fly fly fly.
