The salary increases in the public sector in November will mainly please nurses and medical technicians, who will receive 15% more.
Hence, nurses will earn from 45,684 to 49,241 dinars, depending on whether they work in an outpatient clinic, in a general hospital ward or in the emergency room. The salaries of senior nurses will also increase, and will range from 52,181 to 55,592 dinars, depending on whether they work as public health nurses, in general hospitals or in intensive care.
Teachers, judges, prosecutors employed in courts and prosecutors’ offices and social workers, as well as for members of the army forces and security services will receive a 9% raise.
