The government declares war on daily-workers!


Under the title: “The government declares war on the daily-workers”, Leah Al-Kazzi wrote in the newspaper “Al-Akhbar”: The government wants to reduce its expenses by spending workers “in demand” (daily-workers) in the institutions of the Ministry of Energy and Water. These institutions already suffer from a shortage of their employees, and the public facility in them is not likely to run an additional “runaway”. The “daily-workers” category is the most vulnerable in the public spending chain, and their income has been eroded by the depreciation of the lira and the high prices. The cost of hiring “permanent” workers is much greater than the cost of daily workers who have been left for nearly two decades without guarantees. But it seems that the government wants to start “reform” from the weakest, after it has been unable to touch the strongest

The Lebanese state is dealing with the issue of public sector employees, as if it was a doctor who had seen a patient suffering from ankle inflammation, so he decided to amputate his entire leg. The interruption of dollars, a deficit in the balance of payments and the balance of trade, a waste of public money, a concentration of wealth among the few … but public sector workers were converted to the “Great Satan”. Public debt, and the tremendous benefits to it, are not the absence of good governance, not political patronage, are among the causes of the crisis. The problem of the country has become confined to public office, and specifically to the most vulnerable group of employees, that is, daily workers. I wanted to generalize this theory and market it to the public opinion, and it has also contributed to the fact that political forces used daily-workers in their political struggle and found in them an excellent “door” to expand their social control. In addition to that, the institutions that adopted “deception” in this file, and in agreement with the contractors, sometimes did not provide regulations for the employees and the salaries they receive, which contributed to converting the daily-workers into a “source of waste” in the state.
