Transport fares to fall in S’pore proves ministerial salary reduction also possible

Posted on 30 October 2016

Finally, it is happening.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in logic and how variables move in tandem, have called the government to reduce ministerial salaries in the wake of transport fares falling in Singapore.

This after transport fares will fall by 4.2 percent from Dec. 30.

One Singaporean, Jiang Dao Li, said: “As you can see, never say never. The day has finally come where transport fares in Singapore have fallen in response to external factors.”

“Therefore, ministerial salary reductions must also happen as it is possible. Let’s strike when the iron is hot.”

Other locals said allowing ministerial salaries to fall will result in overall cheaper prices throughout Singapore.

Pian Yee, another local, said: “We should recognise a miracle the moment we see one.”

“Professions like doctors and engineers have been taking ministerial salary as a benchmark to remunerate their staff.”

“If one more thing is cheaper, more things will also be cheaper and then everything will not be so unnecessarily expensive.”
