PAP should abolish payment of MP’s bonus, stop increasing citizens’ costs

The PAP government should review its own exorbitant salaries and allowances before implementing further cost increases for citizens.

If PAP is so short of funds, one way to generate additional revenue is to cease paying MPs the 13th month bonus and an AVC of about 1 month. PSD

With a monthly MP allowance of slightly below $14,000, abolishing these bonus payments will save the government almost $28,000 per MP annually or almost $2.5 million for all the 89 MPs.

Anyway, why should a part-time MP be paid a bonus when no other part-time jobs in Singapore pay any?

Should the PAP continue to pay 2 months’ bonus to MPs while increasing citizens’ burden?

    FYI more & more ministries and stat boards are using 6-month & 1-year contract employees (10%-20%) to fulfill their work requirements. These employees don’t get any bonus, neither 13th month nor performance nor pro-rated etc. Purely monthly salary that’s it.

    Govt is using this tactic to exploit poly & private degree grads, as they are the ones facing the highest underemployment / unemployment situation. If govt can do this and set the tone, all other private companies (especially SMEs) also do the same and pay even lower salary.
