Almost 200,000 People Work For The Government of Panama

Employment & JobsThe cumulative gross total paid to government employees in Panama from January through October 2012 came to a total of $1.771 billion dollars, up 10% compared to the same period last year, according to the Comptroller. This amount is comparable to the investment made ​​by the State to build Line One of the new Metro subway system - $1.88 billion. The increase in the cost of operations is caused by several laws which have increased the salaries of government workers. By October 2012, there are approximately 200,000 people on the government payroll.

Editor's Comment: The total number of people on the government payroll has increased by 4.2% compared to last year - up from 190,736 to 198,708 - while the amount of money being spent to pay them increased by 10%. Pay raises account for the difference.
