A good start

The Herald reports:

There are 20 new cases in New Zealand as reveals all Government ministers and public sector chief executives will take a 20 per cent pay cut for six months.

Ardern said the pay cut was about leadership and also reflected what was happening in the private sector.

Good to see this leadership from the Government. Private sector incomes are plummeting, so this is a good move – even if in response to calls from and the Taxpayers Union.

It is interesting however that it only applies to Ministers. Couldn’t the PM get her caucus to agree to it?

Next up should be all MPs, Mayors and Council CEOs and their senior managers.
