State saves money at the expense of medics’ wages
Medical professionals of one of the out-patient hospitals in Kobryn left working places protesting against cancelled advance of salary.
The joy of Kobryn medical professionals over increase in pay by 50 000 Br (about $24) was not long. They received money for November, and the promised increase in pay wasn’t received by them, Radio Racyja informs.
On 5 December they were told by the centralized bookkeeping office that 50 000 Br would be taken away from them, and the reason for that is economic crisis. Every district is to save up to 2 million rubles until the end of 2008.
After the ‘New Year present’ was announced, medical professionals of one of the out-patient hospitals left their place of work without working the complete day.
