Greens respond to pay hike

Comments

Dear editor,

The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) is disgusted that the province’s 58 MLAs have awarded themselves a 1 1/2 per cent pay increase, which brings their basic pay to almost $95,000.

The increase is insensitive, given its timing. The province is only going to increase the minimum wage by 20 cents an hour, and it will only happen this fall. Meanwhile our greedy MLAs are taking the 1 1/2 per cent increase right now.

The MLA pay increase is a slap in the face to the thousands of people across Saskatchewan who are struggling to deal with rising rents, enormous mortgage payments, rising bills and the increasing cost of groceries.

The GPS welcomes feedback from anyone who has ideas about how to better monitor and control pay increases for our MLAs.
