More of your tax dollars....

From Ma'an:
The Palestinian Authority will increase employees' salaries by 4% this month, Amjad Abu Raed, head of the Union of Government Officials said on Monday.

Abu Raed said that a 2.75% increase will be tacked on to salaries for the cost of living, and 1.25% will be given as an annual bonus.

All governmental employees will receive the raise, he said, adding that the union received a formal decision from the Ramallah government announcing the decision.
A good number of those that will be receiving this across-the-board increase live in the Gaza Strip - and don't work at all.

Thus helping ensure that Hamas can use all the money it gets from Iran for weapons, and not to actually take care of Gazans.
