Here we go again!
The Ontario MPPs (currently earning a base salary of $88,771 a year, more than twice the average salary of employed Ontarians), voted themselves another increase of 25% bringing their base salary to $110,775 per year!. Cabinet ministers will be paid $157,633 per year.
By voting themselves this 25% increase in salary, they displayed inconsistency and arrogance.
Ontarians are tired with MPPs voting their own salary increases.
Salaries of MPPs should be legislated to be exactly twice the average salary of employed Ontarians (is twice as much as the rest of us not good enough?), should be recalculated with each budget, and should be fully taxable.
In this way MPPs' earnings would automatically be tied to Ontario's economic prosperity and tax levies, which they are supposed to control.
