No one can please everyone at the same time . . .
but someone at least tries .

Liberalization of Egypt



Egypt strike causes textiles halt
Thousands of workers in Egypt have gone on strike, causing chaos in some of the country's largest textile factories. The workers from three factories in the northern Delta region are demanding better pay and bonuses. Strikes are illegal in Egypt and in the past the police have been ordered to break them up using force. Officials are unlikely to seek major confrontations with workers as they want to press on with privatization plans, our Cairo correspondent reports.

This is a big step towards liberalization in Egypt and shows the government’s effort to accept and listen to the people’s voice of action.
I have also noticed that more and more governmental and private industries are raising the salaries of their employees, as well do the government now also look into the necessity of compensation to farmers that experience loss because of natural catastrophes . . .



Egypt to tackle bird flu with in-kind compensation to farmers
Egypt plans to repay in kind farmers whose birds are culled in areas affected by bird flu, following the failure of a previous financial compensation scheme, a health ministry official said. "The ministry is currently looking at this plan, whereby farmers would be given new, vaccinated, chicks when they lose their birds to a culling campaign," Nasr el-Sayed told AFP.

I think the government should be given some credit here. Not everything is only bad . . .

A good start, as long as human rights are a priority. The rest is cake.

Hei! Takk for hyggelig hilsen du hadde skrevet i bloggen min!
Jeg har vært på Blogspot en stund med mine andre blogger og fant at jeg burde samle dem.
Leste forresten det du hadde skrevet i bloggen til Edb-redagog om urin osv.i parfyme. Testet ved å google uttrykket "urea acid in perfume" og da kom det jammen opp sider som dette bl.annet: *Soapmaking and Candlemaking Supplies*
*ler*

Egypt seems to be trying to progress more than the other Muslim countries seem to be trying.

Vin: Do you mean the one that shows from where someone is visiting my blog?
Original it showed the countries, not the cities. And it was interesting to see that mu blog is read from 35 countries around the world.
But when the triel-time was over this one, that is free, showed up.

Don't get paranoid about it, I can not find your address or phone-number.

winai, if you don't like it, don't visit the blog. If you are really paranoid, I suggest you install TOR and Privoxy to protect your privacy. They are free programs that hide your ID by rerouting.

Unions are sometimes needed to get the workers a decent wage for their production..the biggest problems with unions though is that they usually want more than a decent wage and too big a piece of the pie.

Most of us who blog have a site meter that tracks our traffic inclding me. And, if I wanted to I can use it to trace the e mail address of those who comment..but it is no big deal. Like you I have readers from all over this earth and consider most of them internet friends.
