(MENAFN - Arab News) Government employees working at the Grand Mosque in Makkah and the Prophet's Mosque in Madinah will receive a 10 to 15 percent pay hike in light of the fact that they are exposed to various contagious diseases spread by pilgrims who come from different parts of the world.

Employees working at gates and courtyards at the Two holy mosques will get the highest salary increase of 15 percent while administrative workers at the two mosques will get a hike of 10 percent said one source adding that the special monthly allowance would be not less than SR750.
