Debate on President's Address: Mohd Fahmi Aliman on support for essential services workers(Updated: )
The COVID-19 pandemic has made Singaporeans rethink the social value of jobs such as cleaning, waste management and security, said MP Mohd Fahmi Aliman in Parliament on Tuesday (Sep 1). Highlighting the hard work of employees in essential services, he suggested enhancing their Workfare Income Supplement payouts and called for them to get more support to upgrade their skills. He also spoke on mental health concerns, especially among younger people, and asked for "safe spaces" to be created where they can feel comfortable talking about their problems and seeking help.
