An investigative committee for Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress is recommending raises for civil service workers because they’ve seen no pay increase in eight years, reported the People’s Daily Online.

The report mentioned that public servant salaries haven’t increased along with economic growth or inflation during that period, and have actually fallen compared to other job sectors.
