KUWAIT CITY, Dec 24: Senior ministerial sources said the amendment to the salary scale costs the state budget 350 million dinars, which aims to redress about 40% of the employees in the government, reports Al- Anba daily.
The sources added, this comes within the government plan to link salaries and wages to inflation and employee’s productivity in the public and private sectors while at the same time protecting the fund for future generations. The sources pointed out the situations of 40% of the employees will be adjusted compared to their counterparts in the same professions and specializations in other official bodies.
As for the expected changes to achieve this justice in the future, the sources said, no allowances will be deducted, for example, the study of job allowances and the calculation of the average value of the total allowances received by workers in the profession and the degree concerned.

As for the advantages of adjusting the salary scale, the sources replied by saying justice in job allowances is ensured, especially that the basic salaries that depend on the employee’s degree and social allowances for children will not be affected
