PM Jacinda Ardern and New Zealand cabinet take pay cut because of coronavirus

New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she and her cabinet will take a 20% pay cut for the next six months because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We acknowledge New Zealanders who are reliant on wage subsidies, taking pay cuts, and losing their jobs as a result of the Covid-19 global pandemic,” Ardern said Wednesday in a news conference. “Today, I can confirm that myself and government ministers and public service chief executives will take a 20% pay cut for the next six months.”
She added that the pay cut will not affect her government’s fiscal policies, but is intended to show leadership that her cabinet has taken.
