Qatar raises government salaries amid austerity grumbles | Reuters

Qatar raises government salaries amid austerity grumbles | Reuters:

"Qatar will raise the salaries of government employees next year in a rare spending hike by a Gulf state at a time when low oil and gas prices are weighing on state finances.

Some Qataris' basic salaries will double, under a law to be passed in January that was published in Al Sharq newspaper late on Sunday. Salaries for non-Qataris remain the same.

Gas-rich Qatar is the wealthiest country in the world per capita and its roughly 300,000 citizens enjoy free healthcare and education."
