The 2011 ministerial pay review was just another wayang. Although it has been 7 years since, their ridiculously-high maximum bonuses warrant another review.
The cosmetic changes implemented by the PAP government – recommended by the PAP-appointed review committee – only resulted in maximum bonuses being reduced to 13.5 months for ministers and 19.5 months for the PM. (table below edited to show maximum bonuses)
Should any public SERVANT receive up to 13.5 months’ bonus, excluding the 13 month bonus?
Isn’t the PM – as the leader – setting a terrible example by allowing himself to earn up to 19.5 months in bonus funded by taxpayers?
