No pay hike for civil servants next year: Cabinet

No pay hike for civil servants next year: Cabinet

Taipei, Aug. 17 (CNA) 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 Lih-chyun (???) 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.
