Re: Highest paid govt. officials
Samoa doesn’t have good leadership and these salaries are more than what government officials get overseas.
As Leituala pointed out, they are tax free salaries. So these salaries are way out of whack, especially considering the min wage is 2 tala and it is Associate Ministers who do the Minister’s work.
Then in another article, the P.M. is re-defining poverty in Samoa from what the UN standards are for poverty. He is also commenting to the press about the Sogi issue while it is before the courts.
He’s not an example of a good leader and he does not behave very prime ministerial. He should not be getting the salary he gives himself.
He has a bloated sense of his self worth. It is the people making 2 tala per hour who are paying this arrogant man’s salary.
