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

Posted on 25 November 2015

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
