Red Dot United Seminar 2022 – Closing the Pay Gap

Pay gap occurs in all countries and societies and across most professions, and Singapore is not an exception. A pay gap which is not corrected prevents the rights of the more vulnerable and marginalised from being better protected and improved. It becomes a hurdle and deters them from achieving economic independence and security.

Red Dot United is organising a seminar to address this very important topic as wage inequality makes us all vulnerable.

Through this seminar, we want to explore how some work in the core economy is unpaid or undervalued and exploited, generating life-long inequalities in social standing, job opportunities, income, and power by those affected. It is our hope that by exploring this we can uncover the compass for the progress of Singaporeans in the 21st century and discover the possibility of creating a more just Singapore.
