MLA's in line for a raise but not the Premier
May 23, 2012
Wayne Drysdale takes his seat on the Front bench at the Legg today as Infrastructure Minister & former County Reeve Everett McDonald as a rookie MLA. The House resumes for a brief sitting that will see the government OK a new pay deal for politicians, but reject a recommendation to drastically hike Premier Redford's salary. House leader Dave Hancock says the Boss has already made it clear she won't accept a recommendation to hike her annual pay from $200,000 to 335-Grand within 2 years. MLA's will make a base salary of $134,000, with an extra 67,000 for Drysdale & other cabinet members, the Speaker & the Official Opposition leader.
