Young Egyptians took to the streets again yesterday, in Cairo and across the North African nation.
This time to demand better wages.
The Egyptian Ministry of Finance approved an increase minimum monthly wage to 700 Egyptian Pounds (or about $118) in July -- but many feel this amount is not high enough.
The recent revolution that resulted in the ouster of the 30-year regime of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has taken its toll on the function of national industries, particularly tourism.
The Egyptian governing authority's budget deficit is expected to rise to nearly 10 percent of GDP in the financial year of 2011-2012, according to the Institute of International Finance.
Analysts believe that Egypt is eager to boost public expenditures in an effort to promote stability and thus a stronger platform for international investment.
