Suffering The Consequences Of Obscenely High Salaries

We Are Suffering The Consequences Of Obscenely High Salaries Of Our Public Servants!

When you pay public servants excessively high salaries,the first consequence is that they lose touch with the ground and the lives of ordinary citizens whom they are supposed to serve.

Debacles such as SimplyGo then occur.

Other Asian countries and cities such as China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and even Malaysia, where public servants earn nowhere near the types of salaries ours do,appear to be able to create more user friendly integrated cards then SimplyGo.

My friends, this latest debacle of SimplyGo has amply demonstrated that excessively high salaries for public servants is the problem and not the solution.

We need to bring salaries for our public servants back to sanity!

It has been PV’s long held policy to slash the Prime Minister’s pay by 70% and to have the other Ministers’ pay also slashed proportionately. Even after slashing the PM’s pay by 70%, he/she will still be the highest paid political leader in the world!

  • Expect more:

    OK to have high salary…but must deliver more and good service to the Citizen.
    Look like SimplyGo need to simply go away and replaced with a SimplyGood one…or better still to make the present team simply go away ?

    A simple question “What can Opposition do for me?” and all Opposition all diam diam diam (silence)

    2nd simple question “Will Opposition assist company to QC the FT academic credentials for free?” and all Opposition all diam diam diam (silence)

    Conclusion: Opposition has no positive contribution to Singapore.

  • opposition dude:

    Problem with LTA is that they just go by the data from the fare machines on the buses when they make the decision to shorten the routes. They see service 167’s passengers drop by 40% so the real smart thing to do is to withdraw the service, never mind the commuters affected. This is the type of booksmart not streetsmart people in charge at LTA, the same monkeys who do not use public transport and have no idea of how much inconvenience this will cause the commuters still using said bus service.

    You want the obscene pay cut then you just need more than half of parliament seats. Once you achieve that straight away demand for the salary decrease and put it up for a vote. The monkeys will vote no but they will be outnumbered anyway so once it’s reduced to a level they do not like expect most of the clwons to start coming out 1 by 1 saying shit like they have been in politics for a long time so time to retire or lost the fire/will to serve the people liao that sort of excuses.

    This will then lead to by elections since we all know these turkeys are only in it for the $$$ and nothing else. End of the day every man/woman for himself/herself, who gives an F to the party when it’s already the minority in parliament?

    The only issue with this is whether the kiasees got the balls to vote in majority opposition or not nia.

  • $ clogged brains:

    Singapore has appointed itself the global police for sea navigation.

    Want to die ah?

    Now that the sovereignty of the littoral states is violated, will Singapore withdraw or stubbornly be part of the force attacking Yemen?

    Is Singapore, the global police for sea navigation, going to ensure free navigation along Taiwan Strait? And the narrow straits to the Black Sea that is controlled by Turkey? And the English Channel?

    Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen told parliament that the immediate impact of Red Sea attacks on Singapore is expected to be limited. But it still makes eminent sense for Singapore to offer help to protect the world’s shipping wherever it is most threatened.

    Singapore’s approach to freedom of navigation and security of sea lines of communication is both pragmatic and principled.

    As a critical hub in the global trading system, Singapore’s prosperity and security depend on the safe transit of the commercial shipping on which that system is based. The Port of Singapore hit a record volume of vessels – 3 billion gross tonnage – in 2023.

    It is a pressing reality for Singapore, sitting astride another key choke point – the Straits of Malacca and Singapore.

    Having been a member of the 39-nation Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) since 2009, Singapore has contributed to international maritime security efforts in support of good order at sea, such as Task Force 151 to counter piracy in the Gulf of Aden.

    Dr Ng reiterated the key principles in parliament: While the primary responsibility for maritime security lies with the littoral states, the international community and agencies have a role to play. All measures have to be in accordance with international law and respect the sovereignty of littoral states.

    Public SERVANTS should not PUT $ BEFORE SERVICE TO PEOPLE.
    Of course a fair wage is only right.
    But to PEG PUBLIC SERVANTS’ WAGES TO PRIVATE SECTOR $alaries is propagating GREED.
    And,we all know the GREED OF PRIVATE $ector TOP execu-THIEVE$ is never $atiated.

    THIS IS WHY PRECISELY our COST OF LIVING has been PUSHED HIGHER AND HIGHER BEYOND NORMAL SUPPLY/DEMAND DERIVED INFLATION!
    OURS IS BA$ICALLY CO$T-PUSH INFLATION AND THE “CO$T” ELEMENT COMPRISED MAINLY THE HIGH WAGES N BONUSES OF TOP PUBLIC SERVANTS/PRIVATE SECTOR EXECU-THIEVES/BUSINESSMEN INCLUDING THE EXORBHITANT RENTS they seek.
    Rent can be seen as “wages” asked by the RICH LANDLORDS THAT INCLUDE MANY GLCs like Capitaland,etc.

    Of course,VARIOUS OTHER EXTRANEOUS MONEY-COLLECTING $chemes have had been employed by the GREEDY GAHMEN such as COE AND OTHER FORMS OF LEVIE$ N $URCHARGES BESIDES A HIGH GST THAT ENSURES A HEFTY EXTRA SUM ADDED ON TOP OF ALL OTHER FORMS OF “TAXES” THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN LEVIED?!

    MEANWHILE,RAID SGS’ HARDEARNED RESERVES AND DISHED THEM OUT SO GENEROUSLY TO NON-sgs working here when DESERVING N NEEDY sgs were granted a paltry short-changed sum of $600 out of a publicly declared sum of $23.5K?
    ANd,They called it Solidarity/ Resilience to veil it all?
    Solidarity WITH WHOM?
    Resilience FOR WHOM?

    Afterwards,THEY said INCREASES IN GST IS FAIR AND EQUITABLE AS IT INCLUDES ALL?
    ALL?
    Including the POOR SGS WHO GOT ONLY $600?!
    STILL FAIR?

    PUBLIC SERVANTS MUST BE EXEMPLARY LIKE DR GOH KENG SWEE REMINDED A LONG TIME AGO.
    A CALL TO PUBLIC SERVICE SHOULD NOT BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE BIGLY MONEY BUT A WAY TO THE HIGBER CALLING OF SERVING THE PEOPLE NOT UNLIKE THE VOCATION OF PRIESTHOOD LIKE DR GOH DEFINED SO APPROPRIATELY.

    GO FIGURE…
    SGS MUST WAKE UP!
    MORE SO THOSE WHO ASPIRE TO BE OPPO MPs or FUTURE.

    The COMMON SGS INCLUDING DISPLACED AND DISADVANTAGED FORMEF PNETs are suffering from the wrongs of PUBLIC SERVANT$.

    GO LOOK AROUND!
    DONT JUST LISTEN TO SOUNDS GOOD FEELS GOOD FEEDBACK of THOSE WHO JUST WANT TO “PLEASE” TO REAP THEIR OWN BENEFITS ONE WAY OR ANOTHER!
    PBM,BBM?

    Sure,MANY DISHONOURABLEs have been honoured!
    They can touch tbeir own hearts and know tbe truth deep down in their very soul.

    God Bless Singapore and SingaPOOR!

  • SINGAROAR:

    We have to vote Opposition to reduce/remove the PAP majority. Only then can the salaries be reduced to follow other First World States. It is the people on the ground that keep voting in the PAP as they don’t read articles and are not exposed to alternate media. 70% remain frogs in the well looking at the same skyline.

    $in City is the most expen$ive City in the world.
    Is that a $ign of HIGH “KPI”?
    Sure if “KPI” stands for “KEY PAY INDEX” for govt.
    GINI IS ONE OF THE WORST IN THE WORLD AND WHY?
    INEQUALITY OF INCOME DISTRIBUTION.
    GST DOES NOT HELP TO CLOSE THE GINI GAP ESPECIALLY WHEN RESERVES ARE BEING USED TO SUPPLEMENT THE HIGHLY SALARIED EXECUTIVES AT THE EXPENSE OF THOSE WHO ARE SHORTCHANGED,RE: $600 TO POOR SGS FROM $100B of withdrawn sgs’ reserves.

    If GINI remains bad,it is a CLEAR INDICATION THAT FISCAL POLICIES ARE BAD as well.
    The G keeps taxing the poor when they should be TAXING HIGH INCOME-EARNERS MORE!
    Instead,as illustrated by the distribution pattern of the $100B from sgs’ reserves.

    Stupido!

    Sinkieland’s civil servants are underpaid and overworked?

  • Light The Way:

    Cash is King.

    That’s how the locals are brainwashed into accepting high Ministeral salaries as the norm.

    And holding multiple high office appointments to generate multiple streams of high income are also the norm.
