How many here prepared to trade-off more unemployment benefits with higher taxes?

Not many, see below. Even got some (luckily only 12%) “disagree with unemployment benefits, as they believe there are enough training and job opportunities”. Queen Jos and other millionaire ministers must be smiling. These people must also be part of this group: Sia suay! 24% of S’poreans are more PAP than the PAP on our reseves)

When posed with a scenario of paying higher taxes to fund unemployment benefits:

Only 31% of Singaporeans feel those unemployed should receive financial support while looking for work, even if it means paying higher taxes. But support is higher among Gen Zs (37%) compared to the older Baby Boomers (23%)

12% of Singaporeans disagree with unemployment benefits, as they believe there are enough training and job opportunities

57% of Singaporeans believe in giving financial support to those unemployed, but not at the expense of themselves having to pay higher levels of tax

S’poreans are a selfish lot. They deserve a Pay And Pay government.

What do you think?

  • Harder Truths:

    This is only a problem if there are too many FT’s taking real jobs away.

    Also work-at-home will become work-from-Chennai or work-from-Hong Kong.

    Hey 61% – are you soon-to-be unemployed idiots listening?

  • Sneaky question, smart people:

    Why must the sneaky question link unemployment benefits to higher taxes?

    The 57% are smart. They know unemployment benefits need not come from higher taxes!

    When the gov build all those white elephants, do they link those to higher taxes? Heh, you want a big statue of LKY and pay higher taxes for life?

    From another perspective, Singaporeans are already paying very high taxes, all taken from them through CPF without them knowing.

  • Reality:

    Reality is they will change their mind when they are at the other end.
    They have not experience the suffering many of the Singaporean are facing now,especially the older PMETs.
    Many of them are still unemployed or grossly underemployed inspite of their best efforts.
    The failure of our Government Policy .

  • Sad situation:

    Many companies will have to close and many private jobs will be lost.
    Not sure how many can survive this time with one of the worst social net protecting them from unprecedent time like this.
    Help will not come when they need it most….
    CPF can see but cannot touch. Many without much cash savings to tide them over …Covid has show the weakness of our support system for the vulnerable.

    I have spoken to quite a few FT. Even though they may have $G citizenship they will go back to their country of origin once they have enough. They know how to get back their citizenship or else have other types of arrangements when they go back. These people are street smart. In the meantime they will vote for Team Despot so they can continue staying here indefinitely.

  • NotMyProblem:

    Before we could see the $23,225, as what MP Tin calculated, that we are to receive from the government, we already have to start repaying!!

    I know everyone has already spent the $600, just don’t forget we need to pay back by installment. There will be more bills coming, like those from the cruise ship, hotels’ and temporary accommodations.

    Also don’t expect any help from this government, they already given an extended runway by the 61%.

    Don’t expect any reduction of FTs. You can see from the fact that imported Covid still coming in. These are FTs returning to Singapore for work!!

    Just remember, whatever promised before GE2020 by the PAP are now turned to gas as fart!!!
