Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in the pledge that Singapore is based on justice and equality, have come out to voice their concern that two full Education Ministers must share one salary between them.

This after they noticed that the education portfolio had all along been overseen by just one minister previously.

One Singaporean, Seng Lui, said: “To have two education ministers draw two salaries, sends a signal that there can be three or four Defence Ministers in the future or even seven or eight Prime Ministers at one time.”

“Each minister will draw one salary each and this will cause the system to be bloated.”

Other locals said allowing two ministers in one portfolio to share one full ministerial salary will aid in helping to cut costs.

Zhuan Qian, another local, said: “If two full ministers can share one salary, this will show the extent of their commitment in serving Singapore.”

“Moreover, if the full ministers want to earn more money, they can fall back on SkillsFuture and upgrade their technical capabilities and find other jobs available in the economy.”

“This will aid in economic growth amid gloomy outlook while facing headwinds and all that stupid economic jargon.”
