Lebanese Politicians and their Salaries [Infographic]

Lebanese Politicians and their Salaries [Infographic]

I was inspired by a recent article discussing the notion of increasing salaries of the current government and the national outcry that propagated because of it. Whether the law was given the green light or discarded, the fact remains that our government bears no consideration to the needs of its people. Sadly, the absence of the middle class and the majority of the population is below the poverty line. It’s only time that will decide how long the people will remain under economic gridlock, but hey, at least their politicians are doing fine.

Update: Due to ongoing requests, an Arabic version was created on this page: http://nicolashayek.me/lebanese-politicians-salaries-infographic-arabic/
