Comment on Against Approving The Wage Scale Draft by fabien

Blog Baladi Comments - Thu, 2014-04-17 13:42

they deserve the raise ! i am not talking about the corruptino in administrations but teachers and the lebanese army have the right to live a decent life too … they are not free to put higher prices on products like many others tradespeople.

You should also know that the lebanese army is forbidden to have a secondary work too. So the raise in salaries should occur and how to compensate it is another question. I agree politician wages should not be as high but its not teachers and lebanese army men that should pay the price. so i would like you to also consider these persons beeing the victim of everyone putting up higher prices on everything just for the fun of it before saying you are glad it didn’t pass.
