Private sector pay boost for Bahrainis
Manama, September 3, 2012
A total of 5,779 Bahraini university and high school graduates working in the private sector have so far benefited from a wage-improvement project, said a top official.
Private firms have approved a minimum BD400 ($1,061) salary for 1,734 university graduates with the support of the Labour Ministry, Assistant Undersecretary Ridha Hubail said.
A batch of 275 university graduates also enjoyed the same pay rise without any support from the ministry, he added.
Under the same scheme, private firms have approved a minimum BD250 salary for 2,722 high school graduates and less - with the support of the ministry.
Meanwhile, 1,048 employees from the same category enjoyed a similar pay rise without any ministry assistance.
The scheme was launched in September 2011 to improve the wages of over 23,000 Bahrainis in the private sector. – TradeArabia News Service
