“Shared Prosperity” should happen in Singapore too!
“The (Malaysian) prime minister said development will now mean “shared prosperity” between all citizens from an increase in purchasing power, and the elimination of a wide income gap between classes and ethnicities.”
Yes, “shared prosperity” should happen in Singapore too :
– increase purchasing power by abolishing the 7% GST, cheaper new public flats, cheaper healthcare, waiver of fees for schools, ITE, polytechnics, colleges, universities, 90% grant for childcare, monthly allowance of $300 for children and elderly, etc
– eliminate wide income gap through wage reform, with minimum wage and substantial reduction in salaries of ministers, top civil servants and top management of GLCs.
Can we do it? Yes, we can. How? Vote out the PAP!
