Debate on strategy to emerge stronger from COVID-19: Poh Li San on uplifting manufacturing wages(Updated: )
Raise the salaries of workers in the manufacturing industry to a more acceptable level against sectors that have implemented the Progressive Wage Model, said MP Poh Li San in Parliament on Thursday (Oct 15). She pointed out that manufacturing is the biggest contributor to Singapore’s economy, yet poor pay and working conditions have put off local workers. Ms Poh said the community healthcare sector faces the same problem of not being able to attract Singaporeans because of low wages.
