PROFESSIONAL S-LEAGUE CLUBS DON’T KNOW CPF RULES

Interesting to see that the CPF Board is fining some S-League clubs for failing to pay their youth players CPF money. Problem started some months back, as these S-League clubs pay only CPF to their players in the S-League squad, but no CPF to their youngsters, who were given allowance money instead of salaries. The clubs had assumed that these allowance money are not subjected to CPF rules. How come the CPF Board and the S-League clubs, who are supposed to be professionally run outfits, never clarify with each other on the rules? The rules have been in place for quite a while, so no reason for not knowing the rules.

RE-EMPLOYMENT ACT: OLDER WORKERS CAN WORK TILL THEY ARE 67

It states that “If employers cannot find work for such workers in their companies, they can transfer them to their subsidiaries or another employer with the workers’ consent, or give them a one-off payment as a last resort.” Does this mean that an employer can find another employer to offer any job on any salary on any terms – and if the employee does not accept – the employer just needs to pay a one-time amount of between “$5,500 and $13,000”?

It states that “The majority of Singapore’s roughly 250 security firms are now in compliance with the Progressive Wage Model (PWM) requirements set for the industry, according to the police which said that to date, “investigations against four security agencies are ongoing”.

HONEST BEE SHOPPING INSIDER: NOT SO HONEST AFTER ALL?

Honestbee advertises on job sites claiming to pay $10/hr. Don't believe it. That's just bullshit. Complete and utter bull. Just today an email was sent out reducing our already pathetic pay from $5.00 to $4.50. Is there anywhere else that pays lower than Honestbee? The Honestbee Facebook page is LITERALLY FILLED WITH ANGRY CUSTOMERS that have encountered problems and yet are unresolved for weeks, much less months. Their standard is to say they will look into it. We understand how they feel, but Honestbee seriously don't give a damn. We are just being used. With pay like this, anywhere else is better. Maybe it's time to use more dependable shopping sites like Redmart. At least you know they deliver what they promise.

ELDERLY S’POREANS RESIGNED TO WORKING AS LOW PAYING CLEANERS & SERVICE STAFF?

As to “Most employed Singaporeans and permanent residents over age 60 work as cleaners, labourers, machine operators, and service and sales workers, according to MOM statistics last year” – these are generally low-pay jobs. According to the MOM’s wages benchmarking tool – the age 50 to 59 median basic pay for cleaners in office and other establishments, labourers (general) and retail assistants/shop sales assistants, was only $1,000, $1,000, $1,251, respectively.

MY BOSS REFUSES TO PAY MY SALARY, MOM SAYS THEY CANNOT HELP

I have been working with Aspect Security Management Pte Ltd for the past 5 months as a relief guard. My boss name is Mr TAJUDIN. Even though I was a relief guard, I was required to work everyday from 7am to 7pm Monday to Sunday. Sometimes, I was even required to work night shift due to lack of manpower. Initially, I was given daily pay by the end of the day. Then, he changed the pay days where I was paid every 2- 3 days once. Now, I have not received my pay since the 4th of January. He owes me $910. Each time I callhim, he either does not answer my calls or keeps telling me that he will call me back. From what I have heard, none of his employees and relief guards have received their pay yet.
