In a laudable move towards fortifying the welfare of the state’s workforce, the administration has implemented a 10% salary increase. This tangible expression of appreciation not only acknowledges the tireless dedication of the state’s employees but also underscores the administration’s commitment to fostering a conducive work environment.
