Higher Salary for the New Ministers
The new Cabinet Ministers are very lucky compared to ordinary citizens!
That's what I thought when I heard that the ministers, just inducted on 22 October, will get higher salary than their predecessors.
They are very lucky because the global economic & financial crisis has caused many business to stop their operations therefore making many people lost their jobs thus unable to provide financial support for their families. Large number of unemployed people has caused increased in crime rates
Further, those Ministers are also very lucky compared to the victims of the frequent natural disasters that have often struck our country recently.
For details, please click here, here, here and here.
Considering the above and the fact that those ministers will also get free housings, luxurious cars, first class traveling facilities, and many other benefits for very important persons, I wonder whether it is now the right time to increase their salary.
