SB Dissanayake, Member of Parliament for SLPP says that the current situation in the world is not an opportunity to increase salaries but to reduce them.
“The World Economic Forum (WEF) released a special report on Monday stating that global inflation, rising commodity prices have put a lot of pressure on two – thirds of the world’s population, and that people around the world are suffering from a shortage of goods. Prices of goods and inflation have now risen in Great Britain after 10 years.
The World Bank says this crash was the worst in the world since 1870. J.P. Morgan, a world-renowned research firm, predicts that the world will face a major food shortage and consumer shortage next year.
I also tell the government not to allow slogans, demands, pay rises and other such things to come to the fore at this time. Because this time in the world is not a time to raise wages, it is a time to reduce wages. It is illegal to do such things. That fact must be taken into account. “
SB Dissanayake stated this addressing a media briefing held at the SLPP Headquarters yesterday (24).
