Premier must lift public wages cap after getting massive pay increases


The Victorian Greens have called for the Premier to lift the public sector wages cap following the decision to give him a massive $46,000 pay rise.

Quotes attributable to Acting Leader of the Victorian Greens, Sam Hibbins:

"After receiving pay increases of over 10 per cent, the Premier and Treasurer now have no choice but to lift Victoria’s low public sector wages cap of 2 per cent per annum.

"The Premier and Treasurer can no longer cry poor when it comes to giving public sector workers a decent pay rise.

"Both Labor and Liberal voted down a Greens amendment to the Victorian Independent Remuneration Tribunal and Improving Parliamentary Standards Bill 2019 which would have prevented the tribunal from increasing politicians pay above the Government’s own wages policy."
