Swimfish: Iraq- how a 50% pay cut equals 100% or more pay raise
Lets say you are presently making 1,000,000 dinar a week. (approx US $1,000 rounded)
You cut your pay to 500,0000
Now you are making US $500
They drop the 3 zeros now you are making 500 dinar and
Revalue at $4 and you are now making $2,000
The result is a real raise hidden in a pay cut.
eezee tree :The link shows what several of the governmental officials made in2010.
I wonder if the president of Kirdistan is taking a pay cut?
If the article is right, the President of Kurdistan Region made $400,000.00 USD per month.
At a 50% pay cut to $200,000 USD per month would be equal to being payed (current rate of 1USD = 1190 IQD) 476,000,000.00 dinar per month.
At a revalued rate of $4.00 would be equal to $1,904,000,000.00 USD per month?
Please help me understand how one person can be payed that much monthly, even at a 50% pay cut?
FUZE: Seriously... Most large corporations CEO's make more and do a lot less. If these guys pull off this reset they deserve it!
OK Rocks: a dinar is a dinar... just with more purchasing power... which may be worth more than the lowly USD
