Alsumaria News - Politics
Amidst a state of controversy sparked by the draft approval of the Civil Service Law, which in turn amends the salary scale of employees, members of the Finance Committee in the House of Representatives stress the importance of the minimum salary meeting the citizen's need due to the difficult conditions and market fluctuations, but an economist came out and said The new salary scale is "banging" or "economic suicide" without a barrel of oil exceeding $100, which aroused a state of resentment among the Iraqis.
This law, which was withdrawn by the government, collides with political disputes and ministerial objections that are likely to delay its legislation, as it concerns a wide segment, namely employees, specifically those with weak and simple incomes, and according to members of Parliament, the new salary scale may be approved at the end of the current year or the beginning of the next year.

From a legal point of view, experts say that there is no legal basis that gives ministries the right to not comply with the new salary scale, especially since Parliament represents the legislative body in repealing and amending laws in the country.
The Iraqi employee is still waiting to hear the news about the new salary scale, hoping that the government will bring him the promised news that has been absent for years and has been absent with him "fairness and justice" and equality with his peers in salaries, incentives and other allocations.
