Holiday for whom?

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Once again, the provincial government created a lot of confusion by declaring a holiday on May 12 without clarifying whether it was applicable only to the Sindh government departments, schools and colleges. Consider how tough it is for employers to explain to office workers that they have to work on this day without being entitled to overtime. But then, everyday is a holiday for Sindh government employees, who work only when they are given bribes by hapless residents of the province.
