Prime Ministers salary

In 1998, just 10 years ago,the Prime Minister was paid $185,000. The speaker was paid $126,000. A Chairperson of a Select Committee got $86,500.

John Key gets more than all three combined in 2008. That's not including his allowances. Is your position paid more than double it was 10 years ago?

To get perspective you also have to ask: how badly underpaid was your position 10 years ago?

And regardless of the answer, this PM is getting paid a lot less in this position than he did in his previous one and what he could earn if he wasn't doing this.

Also, he donates some of his salary, so big deal, I reckon he more than earns the rest.
