Starting from July 1 of the current year, employees of Kazakhstan's environmental protection services will receive a 100% salary supplement to their base pay, as reported by Sarbaz.kz, citing the press service of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
The wage increase will apply to 12,876 workers. Taking into account this raise, the average base pay for specialists will range from 101,000 to 320,000 tenge, depending on the position held and years of service.
