This article was amended on Monday, May 13 2019

This article previously stated that the remunerations reductions supposedly proposed in the 2019 draft budget were part of a 3 percent cut to their wages and pensions. In fact, these are two separate austerity measures. The Daily Star regrets the error.

A version of this article appeared in the print edition of The Daily Star on May 13, 2019, on page 2.
