PM pay standard for public broadcasters

Media minister Ronald Plasterk is determined to place a €180,000 ceiling on public tv pay, Nos tv reports on Friday.

The public sector broadcasters had urged the minister to agree to a €240,00 pay ceiling for presentors and managerial staff.
Currently some 40 people working for public tv stations earn more than the prime minister’s salary of around €180,000.
Plasterk says a handful of top presenters would be able to earn more, but that their pay deals would have to be approved by the public broadcasting sector’s board of governers.
