Do Australian politicians still get paid their high salaries even though they only work for a short amount of time?

The Australian politicians are well paid and they live in luxury and comfort so why should they reduce the JSP and JEP in September. 

They will sit in parliament this week to work out whether they should reduce the payments for unemployed people and the job employer subsidy payment during the Covid 19 pandemic.  

I would like to see if all those rich politicions could survive on the unemployment rate of payment ( 35% of the minimum wage) before the pandemic. It is now 79% of the minimum wage.

It is difficult to get work especially for those over 55 years old.
