Wage cuts for members of government as well

If public employees as well as many private employees are accepting 10 percent reductions in their salaries and higher taxes and expenses, are the members of the government, from the prime minister down, having their salaries reduced by an equal percentage? If not, why? A voluntary reduction on their part would show solidarity with all the affected workers and even sympathy for the losses being suffered by owners of companies and businesses. This might help them to wake up and realize what is really needed. We are all in this together. If this has already happened, it has escaped my attention. WIL MORRIS
