Cutting power prices should be real bonus
THE bosses of our government energy providers are paid enormous bonuses for implementing Annastacia Palaszczuk‘s hidden power tax.
While Queenslanders struggle to keep the lights on, some energy bosses are paid more than $900,000, including $100,000 bonuses.
The more money power companies can gouge from families and small businesses and return to the Labor government to prop up its coffers, the bigger the executive bonuses.
It is just not fair on Queensland electricity consumers and the LNP won’t stand for it.
If elected, an LNP government will restructure the pay of power company executives.
The message is blunt – your bonus will be frozen.
That means these executives will not receive their bonus until power prices fall.
Our policy will apply to around 30 top executives at Powerlink, CS Energy, Stanwell, Energy Queensland, Energex and Ergon, who will be set performance targets aimed at reducing the cost of electricity.
The LNP understands families can’t continue to face the pain of skyrocketing electricity prices.
Enough is enough. It’s time Queenslanders are given a fair go.
The choice this election couldn’t be starker – the LNP fighting to lower electricity prices versus Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor continuing to use electricity as a secret tax on Queenslanders.
