Spain's socialist government on Wednesday ordered a five percent pay cut for public workers from next month as it implemented tough austerity measures in a bid to slash the national debt.

Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said the wage cut would be an average of five percent and that wages would remain frozen in 2011.
