Minister Pay Raises

At the request of SP cabinet member Ronald van Raak, a stop was put to the discussion of Minister Remkes of Internal Affairs raising ministers compensation by 30%.

Van Raak stated that the law was too little and at the same time too much. Remkes wanted to insure with this same law that civil servants were no higher paid than the Prime Minister. A good idea as 1,000 employees in the (semi) public sector at this time earn more money than the PM. In the proposal hardly any measures where taken to tackle exorbitantly high incomes effectively.

The SP wants a new cabinet to abandon such high increases for the ministers and wants better proposals to bring the salaries of the semi public sector more in line. (News SP)


Finally we are getting somewhere!
