How will poor Pakistan raise the wages
Experts believe that the Pakistani government cannot raise the wages of employees even if they want to. Pakistan, which is financially poor, is not in such a situation that it can again spend thousands of crore rupees on the salaries of employees. Pakistan’s total budget deficit reached 8.6% of GDP. In such a situation, the Imran government does not wish to increase this deficit further.
