PAP ministers and other office holders in Singapore earn a total of about S$54 million a year

Do you know the 41 PAP ministers and other office holders in Singapore earn a total of an estimated S$54 million a year?

What they earn is actually enough to pay for the basic wages of more than 3,600 outsourced cleaners in Singapore.

And not only that, they also earn as much as more than 1,100 times the median wage of middle-income Singaporeans.

Should the PAP ministers be allowed to take Singaporeans’ monies to pay themselves the highest salaries in the world, when their jobs can be easily replaced by many Singaporeans, since they cannot even manage the #COVID19 and job situation in Singapore properly?

In fact, do they even deserve such salaries when they cannot even manage Singaporeans’ wage situation properly? Do you know Singapore’s low- and middle-income workers actually earn the lowest wages among advanced economy countries with a similar GDP per capita?

Then why do they still take our money to pay themselves the highest salaries, when we already do not have enough?

  • FalseHope:

    You are ruled by the rich and for the rich. The rich lifestyle creates the momentum for labour dependent survival so your entire existence is dependent on the rich putting you to work for their rich lifestyle. But you don’t mind because the rich has created HOPE, in you and your children, that you can be one of them, like the rich one fine day(like striking lottery – the bait), if you work hard like a donkey and for crumbs(relative to their juicy prime steak – because they claimed, ahem, they had “worked hard” for their wealth).

    With that in mind, the rich sets the political agenda to subjugate the masses mind of the excellence of hard labour – serving the supreme economy.

    You are convinced God will bless you, one fine day, if you work hard so you resist not the rich – you just bad mouth them once in a while, like this article but then the author happily returns to his work, supporting the rich.

    Moral of the story? You are what you consume .

    Covid19 sends a very different message to the rich, and those who work for the rich – you shall surely die.

    Stop believing rubbish from your church for a start.

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    Straits times: Retrenched workers face less stigma as Covid-19 impacts all sectors

    The Government should tell employers it ca retrench workers because of the pandemci but it must on a “2:1 basis”. AT LEAST TWO foreign workers must be retrenched for every local let go.

    Singaporeans must have priority for jobs.

    SINGAPOREANS FIRST. ALWAYS.

  • PAP failed Singaporeans:

    Over the last 5+ decades real wages in Singapore has increased only 6x, per capita GDP 40x, price of public housing (HDB) 30x but salaries of Ministers and top civil servant over 70x. Why? Because LKY (and PAP) focused on sustained GDP growth instead of sustained productivity growth. The latter is more difficult to achieve but necessary because only the latter will result in real wage growth and a higher standard of living.

    Sustained productivity growth also requires a better educated workforce, i.e., more local graduates. But graduates are threat to PAP’s political dominance. That is why PAP limited the number of young Singaporeanin each cohort than can go to local universities.

    Also, PAP needed to keep wages low to attract foreign investments. It promises foreign companies tax breaks and low wages cost if they invest in Singapore. Same reason PAP allowed a massive influx of “cheap” (no CPF) foreign workers. Their large number depressed wages keeping them low and attractive to foreign investors.

    Sadly, PAP could not keep prices low. Singapore is one of the most expensive place to live. Singapore were squeezed by sky-high prices and stagnant wages. Sharp rise in the price of HDB flats (more than doubling since LHL became PM) drained the retirement savings of Singaporeans into a basically depreciating (to ZERO) asset.

    Despite the above PAP Ministers and senior civil servant were paid millions each year – well above 1st World and the highest on the planet.

  • derisory / insulting:

    41 big shots earn $54 million? PLEASE. The top likely earn more than that alone. Roy, please don’t deride or insult them with such low estimates. They may sue you for lowering their dignity.

    Can this be proven? No. Actual pays are kept secret “for national security reasons.”

    In good open countries, the pays are fully disclosed ever year. Check out UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, etc. There is only ONE reason why the pays in Singapore are top secret. It is so obscenely high that voters will change their behavior.

    Meanwhile, people go along with ‘estimated pay’, ‘recommended pay’. Nonsense.
