AbdelFatah Ibrahim - YOUM7 (Archive)

 CAIRO- Chairperson of Egypt’s Trade Union AbdelFatah Ibrahim expressed his refusal of the 1200 EGP minimum wage announced by the government for public sector employees on September 18.

He warned that the decision could lead to sedition among the laborers.

The statement came during the Working Women and the Constitution conference held on Thursday in the headquarters of the General Federation of Egypt’s Trade Unions.

Minimum wage remains a contentious issue as it underlines the calls for achieving social justice seen during the January 25th Revolution and the June 30 uprising.
