    Baghdad / Obelisk Al-Hadath: The Coordinating Committee for Employee Demonstrations in Iraq decided to escalate and continue to demonstrate after official working hours as a warning measure followed by other escalatory steps.
    A few days ago, thousands of employees of state departments took to the streets in an angry demonstration, calling for amending the salary scale in several governorates, including Dhi Qar, Diwaniyah, Baghdad, Maysan, and Babel.
    The obelisk monitored the interactions with the protests, and that parties push the employee demonstrators to declare civil disobedience, while monitoring warnings against investing them for political purposes.
    The high cost of living causes an increase in protests and chaos, and when the prices of basic commodities such as food, fuel and housing rise, it becomes difficult for people to afford the costs of daily life. This leads to massive protests, strikes and riots, especially if the government does not take measures to confront this rise in prices. In Iraq, such protests may be exploited by political parties for the purpose of pushing towards achieving their interests.
    And the employees demanded fairness by adjusting the salary scale, as they suffer from poor living, and high prices in the local markets, considering that this decision would achieve social and economic justice and improve the individual’s condition in fairness to these segments.
    And economist Nabil Al-Marsoumi says, if Parliament and the government are really serious about preparing a new salary scale that achieves a kind of social justice among employees, then this can be achieved by canceling the duplicate and double salaries that are paid to some groups of society, as well as reducing the salaries and allowances of special grades and some categories of employees in Higher grades and using the achieved financial surplus to raise the salaries of the lower classes of employees to achieve a kind of balance in salaries.
    Representative Majid Shankali considered that amending the salary scale is necessary, but it should not cost the state budget any other amount added to the employees’ salaries, because adding any amount to the employees’ salaries is tantamount to economic suicide.
    Activist Nawa Al-Qaisi believes that all employees, without exception, are supposed to be subject to a salary scale, because the deputies, the three presidencies, and the special grades, in fact, have exhausted the state budget.
    Political analyst Haider al-Moussawi believes that if the treatment of amending the salary scale requires financial allocations that increase the percentage of the financial deficit, then we must go to the step of another law to unify salaries and review all allocations that are spent on all the workforce in the Iraqi state to achieve social justice.
    The amendment of the salary scale of state employees aims to address the disparity and differences between the incomes of employees in all ministries and government institutions.
    However, the economic and financial advisor to the Prime Minister, Mazhar Muhammad Salih, revealed proposals to raise the sloping salaries of employees instead of the salary scale amendment law.
    Saleh told Al-Masalla, that there are two solutions to this issue, the first of which is to review all employee salaries, and there will be a salary base that takes into account service and qualifications, as stipulated in the standards of the Service Council, adding that the second solution is to assign the lowest job grades with allowances (cost of living), stressing that This procedure can be modified through provisions, and it was previously applied in Iraq during previous decades, which is more fair to employees.
    Iraq is classified as one of the countries that lacks an effective and serious system that sets minimum wages or a tax system that puts the wealthy in a greater position to pay taxes.
