Civil servants are to receive half a month of bonus for mid-2008, plus the following:
“Officers in the lower divisions, Division III and IV, will receive $250 and $300 respectively. Division I and II officers will receive $100.”
The higher payouts for the lower ranked civil service officers, compared to the higher ranks and also compared to last year’s bonus, are for them to “better cope with the impact of inflation this year.”
Seems inflation is a major concern this year.
