    i always wonder why govt. thinks so deep and make exhausting efforts to ponder about the salary raises of govt. employees while those of the politicians and people on power core get these benefits overnight.
    Anyhow, this is good step to keep some blood flowing into the veins of ever endangered govt. employees.
