No salary in­crease for civil ser­vants next year: Cab­i­net

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Civil ser­vants, mil­i­tary per­son­nel and public school teach­ers will not get a salary in­crease next year, the Cab­i­net has de­cided, ac­cord­ing to its spokesman Sun Li­hchyun Mon­day.

Sun said the Cab­i­net had ear­lier thought about a salary rise be­cause the econ­omy was per­form­ing well at the time and pri­vate-sec­tor work­ers were get­ting pay hikes.

A big data anal­y­sis, how­ever, showed that a pay in­crease was not a nec­es­sary choice, he said. Fur­ther­more, the re­cent eco­nomic down­turn has prompted the Cab­i­net to the drop the idea, he added.
