Committee of Supply 2022 debate, Day 4: Zaqy Mohamad on well-being of lower-wage workers, Progressive Wage Mark

29:19 Min

Singapore has been making progress in uplifting the pay of lower-wage workers and it is now looking at broader aspects of their welfare with a new Tripartite Standard on Advancing Well-being of Lower-Wage Workers. The aim is to encourage employers to provide better workplace support for these workers, focusing on areas such as training and career development, provision of rest areas, and mental well-being. This was revealed by Senior Minister of State for Manpower Zaqy Mohamad in Parliament on Monday (Mar 7). He also said the Progressive Wage Mark (PW Mark) accreditation that was announced last year will be launched in the second half of this year. From March 2023, suppliers who are awarded Government contracts will have to be accredited with the PW Mark, starting with contracts with larger value.
