Has Low income Singaporeans wages stagnated?
Barely a few years ago, these rubbish sites claim our low income Singaporeans are earning less than $800 a month. Now they are claiming low income earners earning $1.2k – $1.5k salary has now been stagnated?
how is it been stagnated when their salaries has been increased from $800 to $1.2 to $1.5k?
Remember we have the progressive wage model in place for cleaners, landscapers and security guards. Stagnant? Who is TRE kidding?
Unveiled in June 2012, the Progressive Wage Model (PWM) was spearheaded by the Labour Movement to enable workers to achieve sustainable wage increases through better skills and higher productivity. The PWM is based on the key objectives of helping Singaporean workers climb the four ladders of skills upgrading, productivity improvement, career advancement and wage progression. In addition, it aims to help companies make better use of and retain manpower, as well as enhance the Singaporean Core.
