Credentials, please?

There’s a plus side to the legislative salary increase of 80 percent. It slowly brings into full view the minimum qualifications or credentials required that corresponds with the new loot of $71,100 per year.

At a minimum, a candidate must have at least a master’s degree in government, English, math, history or Pacific studies to qualify for the new loot. It must come with at least five years of professional experience. It guarantees that he is equipped with credentials that would foster far superior representation. How many of Da Boysis have credentials close or commensurate to the new salary envisioned here?

We all know the humiliation of “out-of-focus” people charged with policymaking without the requisite academic and professional credentials. We can’t even resolve the CW issue that would throw a monkey wrench on economic growth here. What’s our future at the feet of Da Boysis?

Appalling how legislators have openly trashed the wellbeing of the people they represent. Some 14,000 are earning poverty income level and below. Yet, they gave themselves a huge increase in loot of some $31,600 on top of their current salary of $39,500, for a total of $71,100. How much did you get as a civil service or private sector employee?

Furthermore, utilities just went up while huge hospital fees are on the wings. Whatever happened to fiduciary duty? Inconceivable the pile of financial obligations imposed on families struggling to endure the bad times while their royal misfits on the hill feast on their 80 percent salary hike. Credentials, please?
