NSW citizens fed up with the financial pain of lockdowns are keen to see well-paid public servants share the burden to show that “we are truly ‘all in this together’”.

According to an exclusive poll of state residents commissioned by the Institute for Public Affairs, three quarters of us want to see politicians and bureaucrats on over $150,000 per year have their pay docked by 20 per cent for the duration of the Greater Sydney lockdown.

Some 50 per cent of those polled said they “strongly” agreed with the idea, while another 25 per cent said they “somewhat” agreed.

Just nine per cent said they disagreed with the idea.

And across every age group, respondents said they wanted highly paid public servants to share the pain, with those aged 25 to 34 per cent the most strongly in favour.
