Subject: "Restore wage cut", says Manpower Mininster....
...because election is coming. They need to show that they are "very
concerned with voters" to enhance a PAPist win-all-over. After that, these
voters will be pointed at with their middle fingers :)

COMPANIES that are doing well should recognise the contributions and sacrifices that their workers made during the recent recession, said Manpower Minister Gan Kim Yong.
He added it is one way they can retain good workers, and will help companies move forward. As Singapore emerges from the recession, he said, those companies which can afford it should also restore some of the wage cuts and end wage freezes implemented in 2008 and last year.
Mr Gan was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a community outreach event at Bukit Batok West Avenue 5 on Sunday. He also touched on efforts to encourage older workers to rejoin the workforce. The Government and its partners are taking a three-pronged approach in getting mature workers to rejoin the workforce and to stay employed longer, he said.
