Does Alex Tan expect the Govt to spoonfeed Singaporeans instead of them looking for avenues to increase their incomes? She did say the budget is helping workers to upskill too! Better skill better pay!

In response, Ms Indranee said that it all comes back to how the Government can help people increase their incomes, and how the revenue that comes into the household can be increased so “all the other things” can be managed.
“The key to that lies in the economy,” she said. “That’s why you see the first part of the Budget is really targeted at growing businesses, helping them stay afloat in this economy, helping them to access new opportunities, and making sure that our workers are able to get training.”
