Text of e-petition:

Cap all publicly-funded salaries at MPs' pay (£65,738), in order to pay key workers more, reduce cuts to key services and pay off the deficit


Responsible department: Her Majesty's Treasury

Many key public sector employees, at the lower pay scales, are underpaid. Many at higher pay scales are overpaid.

In order to increase the pay of people doing the most vital, socially-useful frontline jobs, on which we all rely (such as teachers, police officers, members of the armed forces, ambulance staff, general NHS workers, care assistants, environmental health officers, fire officers, social workers, etc) the following should occur:

- NO PERSON WHOSE PAY IS FUNDED BY THE PUBLIC PURSE (INCLUDING THE BBC) SHOULD BE PAID MORE THAN THE SALARY OF AN MP (£65,738).

- The savings should be used to pay key workers more, reduce cuts to key services and pay off the deficit.

  2. A cull of overpaid newsreaders who read auto cues would be a start.
