James Bennett started this petition to Daniel Andrews (Premier of Victoria) and

Australia is now 18 months into the Corona Virus pandemic. Currently the Greater Sydney area is in full lockdown, Victoria has just come out of it's fourth, South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland have all had lockdowns recently imposed.That covid is a harmful disease is not in contention. Our contention is that lockdowns, the "cure" for the pandemic are far worse than what Covid can inflict. 

So we ask that as many of our small businesses take on the burden of these lockdowns, that our political leaders take the lead. If they impose lockdowns on states again,they will instantly volunteer to a 50% cut in their salary. This will apply to all elected politicians in the state. In addition to the 50% cut a committment should be made that for every week that restrictions are in place a further 5% is taken from their salary. The money they will sacrifice should then be given to the effected businesses as a token of their solidarity. Salaries will be restored once all restrictions have been lifted.  

The public is constantly told we are "all in this together" whenever a lockdown is imposed. To demonstrate this we ask our elected leaders to take on the econonomic burden that has been placed on the shoulders of all Australians.
