A salary cut is a reduction or decrease in one’s pay or income. It is also called salary deduction or wage cut. Meanwhile, a salary harmonization simply means equal work for equal pay across government or the same position for the same salary. Salary harmonization mainly focuses on equity on the pay scale or bridging salary disparities or imbalances.
Our democracy was on trial under Doe and Taylor. It is now on retrial under ex-soccer star George M. Weah. Things are falling apart so quickly. Lawlessness is hitting the roof.

We could encounter severe consequences and painfully pay for our silence if we continue to ignore prevailing realities.
