The economy is constantly changing, and we must do what we can to adapt. To help those who may be more affected by these changes, more support will be given to ensure income security. Those in the cleaning, security, or landscape sectors will also benefit from the Progressive Wage Model (PWM), which maps out a clear career pathway for workers to earn more wages through training and improvements in productivity and standards.
Supporting low-wage workers - Eligible workers who earn $2,300 or less a month can also receive additional support of up to $4,000 a year in cash and CPF top-ups through the Workfare Income Supplement (WIS). By supplementing wages, the WIS not only helps low-wage workers cover their daily expenses, but also encourages them to build up their savings for their retirement needs.
