BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Thursday issued the legislative decree no. 23 for the year 2019 which stipulates a pay raise for all civilian and military employees SYP 20,000.

In addition to current government employees, retired workers will also be given a raise to their pensions by SYP 16,000.

This latest legislative decree comes just before the new year and during a time in which the Syrian military has been deployed across the country for security purposes.

20,000 SYP is the equivalent of 40 USD.

40 US dollars goes a lot further in Syria than US. Good for government work era and those receiving pensions.
