S’pore hits new low: From no minimum wage to no wage

Posted on 29 October 2013

Volunteer corp proves that only government can exploit labour for free.


To ensure that Singapore remains a clean and green city while working with as little budget as possible, the government is about to embark on the latest harebrained project.

Environment and Water Resources minister Vivian Balakrishnan said his department could enlist and train members of the public who will have the power to issue fines to litterbugs on the spot.

The volunteer corp will be given the same warrant cards as enforcement officers from the National Environment Agency.

Except got no pay, annual leave, CPF, performance bonus and medical benefits.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have shreds of dignity remaining, said such a scheme has broached new heights for Singapore — from below.

Mian Fei Gong, a local, said: “When private companies advertise for people to work for free, MOM confirm will whack them. But when government exploit labour for free, it is called volunteer corp.”

“Singapore from no minimum wage now become no wage, like that quite outstanding.”
