New Plaid leader rejects £20,000 pay rise has news about Plaid leader Leanne Wood.

QUICK TRANSLATION: Plaid Cymru's new leader has rejected a £20,000 pay rise.

Commenting on her decision, Lindsay Whittle AM said: "I'm not surprised that Leanne has made this decision based on principle. She believes it would not be fair, at this time of hardship, to receive an increase when families and individuals are struggling to make ends meet."

Leanne has consistently spoken out against excessive pay, bonuses and large salaries in the public sector. As chair of the PCS union party group, she has supported workers who campaign against job losses and low pay.
