Link Ministers and MP’s Salary increases to rises in the minimum wage

Link Ministers and MP’s Salary increases to rises in the minimum wage

Make it law that the highest percentage increase in Minister’s or MP’s salaries are exactly reflected in the minimum wage increase each year.

Why is this important?

Previous government has secured a "get out" committee for the setting of their wages that ignores the state of the economy that their Government Ministers and MPs are ultimately responsible for.

This has led to MPs salaries way above inflation while they vote against wage increases for others for reasons of affordability.

Linking pay in this way is a simple way to use performance related pay to remunerate our leaders. It would hopefully help to bring back some fairness and trust to politics.
