Independent MP Amir Al-Mamouri revealed, on Saturday, that employees’ salaries were affected by 30 percent due to a direct change in the exchange rate of the dollar.
Al-Mamouri said in a press statement, "The salaries of the employees were affected due to the continued rise of the dollar, which created real concern among the employees," noting that "the value of salaries in general decreased by 30 percent due to the rise of the dollar."
He pointed out, "There is a parliamentary move to pressure the government to return the exchange rate of the dollar to its previous state," stressing "the need for the government to take action against anyone who causes commodity prices to rise exponentially."
Al-Mamouri called on the government to "issue immediate instructions to gradually reduce the dollar's exchange rate and punish anyone who monopolizes the dollar."
