This article was amended on Oct. 12. Due to an editing error, a 0 was missed off some of the figures. The original article wrongly stated that the government would increase the minimum wage to LL700,00 and other wages by LL200,00 and LL300,00. These figures should have been LL700,000, LL200,000 and LL300,000 respectively. 

A version of this article appeared in the print edition of The Daily Star on October 12, 2011, on page 1.
