I thought each set of MEPs lived of their own taxpayers
http://www.europarl.europa.eu/meps/en/about-meps.html


Would seem they all get the same salary, from the EU pot. They get taxed in their own country though.


The monthly pre-tax salary of MEPs under the single statute is 8,484.05 as of 1.7.2016. The salary comes from Parliament's budget and is subject to an EU tax and insurance contributions, after which the salary is 6,611.42. Member States may also subject the salary to national taxes. The basic salary is set at 38.5% of the basic salary of a judge at the European Court of Justice.
