    I am doing job here and earning my livelihood .

    Cons

    in 2002 i joined KESC as a meter reader and still working as a meter reader though I am a European standard graduate now (BS Degree holder -1st division)
    Officer class is getting awesome salaries where as labor's salaries are not according to market rate as bragged .

    Advice to Management

    Offer unconditional but test , merit and then training based carrier growth opportunities to your labor or you can call us THIRD CLASS EMPLOYEES
    everyone is not corrupt or dishonest in your labor .
    collect the personal data of labor , sort out well educated people , take tests , give training ,,,, besides hiring AMs and MIOs externally .
