Dear A.S.S. Editor
Wah, is this true? According to studies done by the National University of Singapore Business School, if you are a woman and on the board of a Singapore-listed company, there’s a high chance you are getting paid a whopping 43 per cent less than your male colleagues.
If this is true, then Singapore is totally failing in a lot of things it claims to be the best in the world in. First, the fact that race and religion are still factors in determining leaders was a shot in the arm, after shouting from the top of the rooftops that Singapore are a meritocratic country, and others should learn from us. That one claim looks gone now. And now, no gender equality? Shocking!
So the higher ups in Singapore really are good at preaching the good things people want to hear only. When it comes the the crunch, Singapore really lacks behind most other countries.
