Yakasai told The Cable; “The state government has returned to the original minimum wage due to the recession. What we get now that the government has shrunk and we cannot afford to pay the minimum wage of US $ 30,000. “ A government official speaking in the publication said he was not informed about developments. The source said;
“We saw a deduction from our November and then December salaries, and no one told us anything. Pensioners were also deducted from their wages without explanation. “
