Egypt employees to get better pay

Egypt’s embattled regime has decided to give government employees a 15 per cent raise in salaries and pensions as it seeks to bolster support amid mass protests demanding President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster.
Today’s decision came during the first cabinet meeting since the crisis erupted two weeks ago. Finance minister Samir Radwan said some 6.5 billion Egyptian pounds ($960 million) would be allocated to cover the increases, which will take effect in April for 6 million employees.
Mubarak’s regime has relied heavily on support from employees on its payroll, with clashes breaking out between pro-government thugs and protesters. Thousands of demonstrators have vowed not to move from the heart of downtown Cairo until Mubarak steps down.
