The initiative ‘Reduce salaries and privileges of Parliament members’ was started by one of Croatia’s leading newspapers 24sata and has already gained close to 30,000 likes on the Facebook page for the campaign.
“They should be paid according to their services. This means that for their work they would not receive a salary. But how many workers go to work every day and do not get paid. They can also go to work and not get paid. At least they would know how it is for the poor people,” was just one of the many comments complaining about MP salaries in the country. Last month 24sata uncovered the salaries and benefits of MP’s in Croatia with some earning over 6,000 euros monthly including benefits although being almost invisible in Parliament.
