Hizbollah does not believe in pay equity

  • Hizbullah Tightens Its Grip on Sinking Lebanon - Dana Khraiche
    Hizbullah in Lebanon has taken on more functions of a state hollowed out by an imploding economy and sectarian feuding. By offering food, cash and medical services amid widespread poverty in this once-middle class nation, the Shiite Muslim group has become a lifeline for many.
        But the gap between the lives of many Lebanese and well-heeled Hizbullah supporters is starting to chafe. Hizbullah fighters have grown richer during the crisis because they're paid in dollars. The lowest-ranking fighters earn more than 15 times the minimum wage. (Bloomberg)
