AUSTERITY TIMES IN EUROPE AND US ?
NOT AT THE UN/UNDP
BAN KI MOON AND HELEN CLARK
GET 4% INCREASE
Mario Monti the italian PM plans to sacrifice his salary as a gesture of solidarity, while he presents an austerity plan for his country.
At the United Nations, top-managers like Ban Ki-moon and Helen Clark are due for a raise, a 4% increase in Cost-of-Living adjustment, because their cost of living in New York is higher due to increase of prices in New York. This despite the fact that both these two "leaders" receive:
1. Full rental subsidy for their apartments in New York;2. Full reimbursement on any lunch or dinners incurred on "behalf of UN";3. Full paid chauffeur and escorted car to ferry them anywhere they want to;
and all the above on top of a
~450,000 Salary (TAX Free)
