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

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

1peanut

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

Accepting credit where credit is due.

Civil servants from all walks of life who are part of the 70 percent are rubbing their hands in anticipation and expecting a big four-month year-end bonus as 2015 comes to a close.

This expectation for a windfall payoff comes after the PAP won the General Election 2015 with a strong mandate.

One civil servant, Jin Gian Lui, said she cannot think of a reason why her fellow civil servants do not deserve more money: “The strong mandate the PAP received is the result of the work of the civil service.”

“If it wasn’t for the civil service, there wouldn’t be the PAP in the first place.”

However, not all civil servants feel this entitled.

One other civil servant, Zhen Fu Gong, said: “I think a five-month bonus is more like it.”

“Because you can always count on the civil service to form the 70 percent silent majority. Wink.”

This demonstrates that the really poor don’t need money but food stamps.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who heard that 82,000 civil servants in Singapore would receive $500 each or $41 million in total in bonuses have applauded the move and said it showed that the government cares.

One Singaporean, Mei You Qian, said: “The people who have stable jobs and income in the civil service are the ones who definitely need more money in life.”

“This is because giving the really poor any amount of money would send the wrong signal as it shows that food stamps are not enough for them to get by.”

Other Singaporeans said this initiative would help cement Singapore’s reputation as a country that has its priorities right.

Zhen Zho Dao, another local, said: “I would like to see more of such initiatives in the future by the government as it will help put the poverty situation in perspective.”

“Whenever the government says it doesn’t have the money to disburse to the poor, it is just putting aside tens of millions of dollars for other purposes.”
