Pegging Minister’s salaries to lowest 20%

Hi SDP,

I read the party’s proposal with much interest.

However, I noticed that despite the plan to peg salaries of civil servants to the lowest 20%, the proposed salary amendments are still 10 times that of the mean value of the lowest 20 earners, such that MPs under the SDP scheme will earn almost as much as Tin Pei Ling does under the incumbent PAP system.

How about halving that proportion to 5 times and reducing ministers’ and the PM’s pay even more?

Yours sincerely,
Michelle
