S’poreans react to civil servants getting 0.65 month year-end bonus

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

Civil servants in Singapore will receive 1.65 months’ worth of bonus to be paid out in December.

This consists of a 0.65-month variable bonus, plus the annual 13-month bonus.

Lower-wage officers will receive an annual variable bonus of at least S$1,100.

The year-end bonus is down from the 0.8 month given out at the end of 2014, when lower-wage officers received at least S$1,200.

 

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “This is the pittance you get for helping the PAP.”
Jin Gian Lui, 45-year-old money changer

 

sian-half-uncle “Such a derisory amount.”
Qi Gai, 61-year-old beggar

 

happy-bird-girl “Money like this makes me want to give up being an entrepreneur for the safety of an iron rice bowl.”
Cheng Hu Kang, 17-year-old future civil servant

Second Permanent Secretary for Trade and Industry Chee Hong Tat, 41, has resigned from the civil service.

The Public Service Division (PSD) of the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement he submitted his resignation and his last day of service is Aug. 11. This is a sign that he is likely to enter politics in the upcoming election.

Public servants must resign before they can enter politics, and are therefore traditionally last to be unveiled as election candidates by political parties.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “It must be such a big leap for him going from a cushy job to an even cushier job.”
Ta Nan Ren, 42-year-old headhunter

 

sian-half-uncle “I heard Michael Palmer’s Chinese name is also called Chee Hong.”
Gao Wai Yu, 62-year-old Batam bumboat operator

 

happy-bird-girl “Whoever said PAP is a reflection of the candidates that join, boring and predictable, is absolutely right.”
Mei Qian Tu, 19-year-old part-time tuition teacher

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 









Civil servants each get $500 bonus to celebrate SG50 General Election 2015

Civil servants each get $500 bonus to celebrate SG50 General Election 2015

Money will go a long way in making them understand where their fortunes originate.

Some 82,000 civil servants from all walks of life in Singapore will each get a $500 one-off payment to mark Singapore’s upcoming general election and the country’s 50th birthday this year.

One civil servant, Zhen Fu Kong, said this bonus will go a long way in making the rest of his peers in government jobs to remember their place in society: “This is a good reminder that civil servants’ fortunes are tied to the government’s prosperity.”

“The money will go a long way in helping us remember.”

However, non-civil servants said this giving out of free money is a lost opportunity to spread gratefulness.

Shi Ren Kong, a non-civil servant, said: “It’s sad that non-civil servants do not get to celebrate SG50 General Election 2015 with extra $500 of their own.”

“If only civil servants and non-civil servants all get $500 each, the election results will be more or less guaranteed in this election year.”

“What a squandered chance.”

 

Civil service is a tough place to be:

A non-scholar civil servant collapsed into the lap of his girlfriend while taking the MRT train this Friday evening.

Fellow commuters in the same cabin who saw him collapse said they were certain he was a non-scholar civil servant working in one of the ministries or statutory boards.

One commuter, Mei You Li, said: “This kind confirm is non-scholar. So shagged because he works the hardest and still on the lower pay scale.”

This analysis was confirmed by the man’s girlfriend, who had to prop him up on her lap.

The man’s girlfriend, Ta Hen Lei, said: “My boyfriend very poor thing, work in his office with all the scholars.”

“Because he got second-lower class degree from university, he cannot promote fast enough and always get arrowed to do all the work.”

“The scholars just take all the credit.”
