Executives cash in at commuter expense

LNP Deputy Leader Tim Mander has called on Annastacia Palaszczuk to order $2 million in taxpayer funds earmarked for senior executive pay rises be invested in commuters instead.

Mr Mander said Labor’s decision to splash 410 bureaucrats with a permanent pay rise in lieu of bonuses was completely inappropriate and out of touch.

“This money should be in the pockets of commuters, not senior rail executives,” Mr Mander said.

“Labor clearly don’t understand that Queenslanders are struggling with the cost of living.

“The $2 million in taxpayer funds would have covered two more Mondays of free rail travel for commuters – instead it will line the pockets of Queensland Rail executives.

“Labor is simply not working for Queenslanders.

“Queenslanders put up with three years of Labor’s Rail Fail and that means no pay rises should be handed out to senior executives.

“Commuters deserve planning to deliver lower fares or more services, but Labor’s priorities are lucrative pay rises for top rail brass.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk needs to step in and stop the taxpayer-funded gravy train at Queensland Rail.

“Queenslanders can’t afford another four years of Labor’s wasteful spending and wrong priorities.”
