AMMAN — Minister of Education Wajih Owais on Monday said the Cabinet on Sunday discussed the demands of grade-three public sector workers, including those in the ministry, to increase their cost of living allowance from JD115 to JD135.

The Council of Ministers agreed that it was important to examine the number of sector workers to assess the costs.

This would take two weeks after which the Cabinet will decide on this issue, he added.
