Despite the importance, discussions and statements about the Federal Civil Service Law over the years and for several parliamentary sessions, the utmost necessity and the need to legislate this law seems that as long as it remains, it will not be a cause for its urgent legislation. Disputes and controversy about it continue, and therefore the dilemma of injustice in the salary scale for employees remains. Ongoing indefinitely.
The financial advisor to the Prime Minister, Mazhar Muhammad Salih, said in an interview with "Al-Sabah" that "the last structure and amendments to salaries and wages was that the Iraqi state was in 2008, that is, nearly 14 years ago, during which the country went through various conditions related to inflation and the great disparity in living standards. ".
He pointed out that "the debate today is about adjusting salaries and correcting their structures, and this is something that is required in all administrative and financial systems in the world."
He explained that "the salaries of the current state employees constitute 42% of the total government expenditures, which in turn constitute 50% of the gross domestic product, meaning that salaries constitute 20% of the gross domestic product, and this will weigh on the total expenditure in the economy, whether directly or indirectly." ".
He stressed the existence of "inconsistency and disparity in salaries between one ministry and another, and the general problem in my estimation is that there are those who receive a salary that is close to social welfare, and this is not commensurate with the efforts made, so the minimum wages must be modified and the consideration given to them." Living consideration.
And he considered that "the direction of the government of Muhammad Shia Al-Sudani is to address the support of the poor classes and those with the minimum government wage," noting that "this is left to the Parliament and its duty to include it in the general budget for the fairness and duty of the crushed employees' salaries."
