Bahrain project to pay graduates better
Manama, September 12, 2011
Bahrain’s Cabinet has launched a project which aims to increase salaries of Bahrain University graduates working in the private sector.
The two-year scheme will benefit 2,200 holders of university degrees with salaries below BD400 ($1,060).
Candidates should be registered with the General Organisation for Social Insurance.
Private employees who benefited from the national programme to train and employ university graduates will not be entitled.
The Cabinet approved the necessary budget earmarked for the scheme. The initiative followed a memorandum submitted by Finance Minister Shaikh Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Khalifa and Labour Minister Jameel Humaidan. – TradeArabia News Service
