All this while Aussies are thrown out on to the street, made homeless jobless and the centrelink dole remains at a couple of hundred a week as it has for about a decade.
SHAME ON AUSTRALIA POST
read on at http://www.news.com.au/finance/work/lea ... 4ec539017eAUSTRALIA Post’s chief executive was paid a total of $5.6 million in 2016, 10 times the salary of Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, it has been revealed.
Ahmed Fahour’s salary of $4.4 million and bonus of $1.2 million were revealed by Liberal Senator James Paterson, who released documents provided by Australia Post in response to questions from a Senate committee.
Another five executives earned between $1.8 million and $1.3 million.
Mr Turnbull told reporters on Wednesday that Mr Fahour’s remuneration package was “too high” and that he had spoken to the Australia Post board chair.
“This is not a decision of the government,” Mr Turnbull said. “I’ve spoken to the chairman today. I think that salary, that remuneration is too high. Now, it’s a matter for the board. I think it is too high. I know it is a big job. It is a big company. The company has been able to improve its position.
“But in my view — and I say this as someone who spent most of his life in the business world before I came into politics — I think that is a very big salary for that job.”
