Budget 2020 Debate: Walter Theseira on resilience, respect for lower-wage workers(Updated: )
Singapore should strengthen the weaknesses in its economy and society that may affect its resilience to future disease outbreaks, said NMP Walter Theseira. Speaking in Parliament on Thursday (Feb 27), he said Singapore has to ensure that when the next test comes, it will be as resilient as it is now. He also wants to see more recognition for workers who earn less but play a vital role during the COVID-19 outbreak. He suggested an increase in salary. “If we don't have the words to express our gratitude, let us at least have the dollars,” he said.
