ESDP: Government must implement minimum wage, even if it leads to inflation
Ehab el-Kharrat (R) - YOUM7/Dina Romeiah

CAIRO: Egyptian Social Democratic Party (ESDP) high commission member Ehab el-Kharrat said that implementing minimum wage is a necessary task for the government to fulfill.

Kharrat told Youm7 that the government can implement it by adopting untraditional policies, including using inflation, which would address immediate social and economic demands.

The government has been lagging in implementing minimum wage that it promised would be available in January, which workers have yet to receive, he said.
