A Brisbane teenager has started an online petition asking multimillionaire Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to slash his taxpayer-funded salary to $1 or donate it to charity.
Corbin Duncan, 15, says Mr Turnbull's wage could help fund vital infrastructure or be put towards pressing issues such as reducing domestic violence or supporting Syrian refugees.
His petition, on change.org, has attracted more than 2700 signatures over five days.
Mr Turnbull's personal wealth is no secret.
He is the second richest man in the parliament, after Clive Palmer, and has been estimated to be worth about $200 million.
Corbin said Mr Turnbull deserved his $500,000-plus prime ministerial salary but would not have taken on the role for the money given his wealth.
"I respectfully request you to consider taking a $1 salary, or donate your current compensation to a charity of your choosing," the teen wrote, adding many high profile people had taken this course.
Corbin said Mr Turnbull should embrace the idea as he has portrayed himself as a progressive leader.
"You have portrayed yourself to be a forward thinking leader and now is the time to show the Australian public what type of leader you are, by standing in solidarity with your fellow Australian taxpayers and forgoing your Prime Ministerial salary," Corbin wrote.
"As a 15 year old Australian with a great interest in politics and current affairs, I implore you to consider my request.
"By taking a $1 salary, you will show your fellow Australians you are truly a servant of our great country and its citizens."
