Time to have a minimum wage

I do not understand why union leaders should object to the proposal of a minimum wage of $1,300 a month. If they think that the minimum wage should be higher, why not propose that higher figure?

There must be some workers who now learn less than 1,300 a month. Surely these workers will benefit from their implementation of the minimum wage?

I do not understand the argument that a minimum wage of $1,300 will depress the wages of workers will now earn above that figure.

Surely the minimum wage work the other way to raise those who earn less, rather than to bring down the wages of those who earn more?

I get confused from time to time with this kind of convoluted argument which appears to be quite prevalent in Singapore. Are Singaporeans that illogical?

Maybe this is a disease that comes after being brainwashed by pap for so many decades?

  • Harder Truths:

    At this point in time TKL you should be concerned with having minimum brains. This is not something others can help with.

  • I pay you,don't ask about mine:

    Indeed, quite the point dear Mr. Tan; we have a crony-habituated Pompous Ass Party Incorporated, free-riding on the world’s third least corrupt sheeple country (Transparency International) but do we know their hidden remunerations and our CPF management accounts books? Hardened hearts with blossoming bank accounts; highly certificated but convoluted mentalities.
    What went absolutely wrong with their human values?

    Singapore should also ask whether NS allowance should also be change to be minimum allowance of $1300 and compensate those that serve NS thirty years ago and above who did National Service with a one off cash of two hundreds thousands instead of acting blurred by the government .Two hundred thousands cash per person is not too much to ask for consider the skyrocketed costs by the government and the shameless evil distribution of huge billions of public funds distributed to rich women welfare for their evil childbirth and these the NS people has to help pay for too after serving NS just because the country wants to gave women heads to take away the jobs of the men destroying families life when all these women set evil women laws and rights !That is why so many families need to divorce ! Pui !

  • does not mean it is a tiger:

    //I do not understand why union leaders should object to the proposal of a minimum wage//

    aiyoh. Just because they are called union leaders in sinkie land does not mean they hold / carry the attributes of a true union leader representing workers’ interests lar ?? 6.9m or 10m open-leg policy, do ‘union leaders’ here make any REAL noise or objection ?

    just becos a chimpanzee is slapped with a badge saying it is a tiger does not mean it is a tiger lar ???

    you do not need to understand a lot of wayang things in sinkie land, just know that it is wayang ?? the white idiots and gang are not here to ‘educate’ daft sinkies lar, they are here to wayang confuse you and make you doubt your own intelligence and frustrate you lar ??

  • Waging War on Minimum Wage:

    All the broohaha is like waging war on minimum wage until the tail stops wagging while the heads are still loggering. Nothing comes out of it meaningfully.

    Pride kills the beholder. Yet the sufferers are the citizens in the lower rungs. Why it’s so difficult to execute when the elites have been extracting millions of dollars whereas the peasants are still toiling and ploughing nothingness?

    Will all these lead to an Eclapse?

    This wage inequality can only be better resolved by concurrently implementing A MAXIMUM WAGE POLICY together with a MINIMUM WAGE?
