预算辩论: 更好的工资,工人改善生活的前景

The Straits Times · 2021-02-26
SINGAPORE - What will improve the lives of workers are better wages and better prospects, rather than a bigger wage share of the country's gross domestic product, said Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat on Friday (Feb 26) ... He was refuting Non-Constituency MP Hazel Poa's comment that Singapore workers are worse-off due to lower wage share of gross domestic product (GDP) ... Uplifting workers' wages and helping the vulnerable in employment is also important, he noted in response to Mr Darryl David (Ang Mo Kio GRC) and Mr Faisal Manap (Aljunied GRC) who welcomed the salary increase for healthcare workers, and have asked for the wages for other frontline workers and sectors to be enhanced as well.
