It is with humility and gratitude, that I confirm, after interviewing a number of CBC contracted janitors this morning that their salary has been raised from 12,200 to the minimum legal wage of Rs.17500 pm. The first
raised salary was paid in cash on 10 August 2020.
While the case is still continuing in Sindh High Court, the CBC was forced to begin compliance as the court demanded an evidence of previous payments.
This is a huge victory for the rule of law. It is a victory for justice. It’s a victory for Pakistan.
There are not enough words to thank our brilliant and distinguished lawyer Faisal Siddiqui and his team, who fought this case on pro-bono basis.
