After Professor Lim Chong Yah’s recent wage shock therapy’s call two months ago, the mass media and public have been debating whether it is feasible to introduce wage supplement so steeply to for low wage workers without considering the impact it has on our businesses.

As many as 200, 000 local workers earn a salary of $1000 and below and many of them are struggling to make ends meet especially when inflation hovers at a high of 5.2% last month.

Fortunately, NWC has recently approved the wage addition of $50 to our low age workers but we ask if this amount is enough to offset the damages high inflation have created on the economy.

Our public forum hopes to tackle the issue of low wages using the debatable minimum wage tool and whether its feasible for our local businesses considering that cost is already quite high now.

Expect sparks to fly as our panelist speakers speak for 15 minutes each and the audience can ask questions later on.



9 June (Sat) at 2.30pm to 4.30pm at National Volunteer and Philanthrophy Centre, 04-88 The Central, Clarke Quay
