MPs salary to be set at the national average.
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Alot of people in this country have suffered during "austerity" but MPs are not one of them. MPs earn around £74,000 a year, where a front line nurse, paramedic, junior doctor, police officer, fire fighter, teacher, they earn around £22,000 to £34,000.
The national average wage remains £27,600
This is because, despite many people earning obscene amounts of money (bankers, CEOs, footballers) there are alot more people on minimum wage at the moment.
Minumum wage is about £13,500 a year (£6.70 an hour)
If MPs salary was set to the national average (currently £27,600) it would give them alot more incentive to improve the lives of people across the UK by increasing the national average.
They could do this by increasing the national minumum wage to £10 an hour.
Increasing the wages of front line staff to reflect the hardwork, dedication, training and education taken to work in these roles.
