May Day Message - implement minimum wage

On this May Day, I wish to state, once again, my support for a minimum wage to be introduced in Singapore. 

1. The minimum wage should be adequate for a Singaporean to raise a family and meet the cost of living.
2. The higher wage cost should be offset by reduction in rental, top management salaries and excessive profit margins.
3. The final cost to consumers should be kept affordable by creating a market that is free, open and transparent.
4. The working hours and terms of employment should be regulated to ensure a healthy work life balance.

Workers of the world, UNITE!
