Leaders ask Government for wage adjustment for public servants

Santo Domingo.- The National Federation of Public Servants (FNASP) visited El Nuevo Diario Friday to ask the Government to include a wage adjustment for public servants in the 2017 national budget.

The FNASP officers recalled that the last time public servants received a wage hike was 11 years ago and pointed out that Congress created a bill for salaries of public administration, which has been shelved for more than two years, "so we demand its enactment," they said.

They said that in 11 years the real value of public servants’ wages has suffered a significant loss of more than 50% of its actual value, due to the amount of reforms and the increasing prices of the basic food basket.
