Do you think increasing employees salary would put an end to corruption, specially on the government sector? This was a move of our government and already are applied to some sectors but not all, yet...What you think...

It's very clear that it's not benefiting every one. others couldn't let go of their greed.

This approach will not work, corrupt people in Government already has lots of money yet they still steal. I'm sure the increase would only be a drop in the bucket compared to what they earn illegally and would only cost tax payers more. Greed is like a bottomless pit.

@ARN4567 if at least most of us has jobs then no one will be poor. even if you keep on looking for a job but those companies just fail you just because they like it seems so unfair.

One should be paid a "living wage" and that should prevent corruption to an extent, but one needs rule of law to be enforced to punish the guilty too - siva

They complain of having a low salary, so they say they resolve to some illegal terms to add up their wages...and yes some are caught and are punished by law....I just hope increasing their wages would help to refrain them from bad things such as corruption...

As said... Let us not be part of that dangerous attitude... "Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction. ... "

I think if people are paid a living wage there could be less corruption.

Yes, specially when they are not caught, or are being back up by some high authorities...that makes them untouchables...maybe so they continue on...

I think it wouldn't help at all. No matter how much you pay someone it will never, in their minds, be enough. People inherently always want more. It's just human nature. And few people will turn down moreā€”no matter where it comes from.

Not all are working in the Government. Increasing the salary of some while taking us to ride to the Train is not helping us but rather a big burden to ordinary masses who are not part of their 4P's program.
