Link pay rises for the emergency services + public sector to same % as MPs

Petition Details

Its time in the UK we look after those that look after us. Not only the emergency services but also the forgotten workers essential to our day to day lives.
The government froze the pay of public sector workers earning over £21,000 in 2010 and maintained a 1 percent cap between 2013 and 2017

Additional Information

In the same period, MPs' pay has risen by almost £14,000 which is over 20 percent.
This cannot be allowed to continue, the brave men and women of the emergency services deserve more. The COVID-19 crisis highlights how essential and underappreciated they are, they are putting their lives on the line and it’s the least we can do for them.
I propose if the percentage increases in pay in all emergency services and public sector workers match that of MPs then you can rest assured it wouldn't fail.
