Banks Cancel Holiday

The state-run banks in Thi-Qar province have canceled their Saturday holiday and extended their working hours until 05:00 p.m. in an attempt to serve more clients.

This decision came after Governor Taleb al-Hassan had met with retired people who were queuing for a long wait to receive their salaries, according to a statement released by the local government and received by Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

The bank employees will be paid overtime rate for the extra hours they work, the statement noted.
