Speakers on push to lower MP salaries by 30%


Rome, March 20 - The Speakers of the House and
Senate have announced they intend to take 30% voluntary pay cuts
and give up their government apartments.
"I don't believe there's the need to earn so much money. I
hope that those who have institutional roles agree, and I think
there's a broad consensus among the parties," said House Speaker
Laura Boldrini on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Boldrini and her counterpart in the Senate,
Pietro Grasso, announced they wanted to "set an example" in
recession-plagued Italy with the salary cut, and said they were
aiming to eventually slash 50% of the costs for parliamentarians
including salaries and other expenses.
According to figures last year, MPs make an estimated
16,000 euros per month, and Senators earn even more.
Boldrini and Grasso also want to impose productivity
standards that would require a five-day work week and double
working hours.
