Information International has developed the 'Facts' series of publications for use in understanding key issues facing Lebanon and the Arab world. In order to undertake administrative reform in Lebanon, the key issue of public sector wages must be addressed so there can be a uniform and fair scale that takes into account the qualifications and duties of each employee. This booklet sheds light on wages and remunerations received by state employees in all departments, revealing the directionary and imbalanced structure the government must confront.
