Regular salary increases is one way to finance S’poreans’ cost of living, said no minister ever

Posted on 08 July 2014

The government will provide in the name of public-spiritedness and keep costs low, said no minister ever as well.


To help Singaporeans combat the ever-increasing cost of living, their salaries must be adjusted upwards by increasing it to a level that beats inflation, said no minister in Singapore ever.

This after Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew told Parliament on July 7, 2014, that having regular fare increases is one way to ensure the financial sustainability of the new bus contracting model.

One Singaporean, Mei You Qian, said: “I like how everything, even public goods and services, can be fixed with more money forked out by Singaporeans.”

“And it’s great the operating costs are always taken into consideration.”

“Except the F1 every year. The public foots the bill when only a select minority group gets to enjoy it and there is no talk about paying the public back for expenses incurred.”

“That’s great.”
