Sands IR workers protest? Signs of trouble?

Recommended Posts

I am impressed that FT are paid $1700pm. [scholar]

Some may say that Singaporeans will shy away from this 7am-9pm, 28days work routine, so have to pay the FT high salary!

 

I heard GRADUATE starting salary are $1700-$2000 in 2007 and 2008! Almost on par,GAWWD!

 

No wonder the properties are booming in Singapore, no wonder car demands are high, no wonder the food court can charged $8.50 for economical rice, etc.

 

Call me naive, but I always thought that construction workers are 'normally' paid around $1k salary.

Construction workers are usually paid higher than normal unskilled jobs as it is a very physically and mentally demanding job....Local born construction workers are paid $2000++...its not unusual for FT to be paid $1700 which is around 30% less than wat locals get...I not sure where you got the info from that construction workers normally gets around 1K salary...

 

But anyway, that's beside the pt...I thot the construction company trying to pull a fast one by deducting $500 from their monthly salaries after agreeing to pay $1700 from the start...

It was in the news last night...but I dun think there's anything wrong with the pay scale...they worked 12-14hrs a day and get 1 rest day in a week at most...

I guess there is not much news on this.....to play down this event.

I would not want to hear Genting/Sands announce any delays or problems.

 

But this 180 workers protest could be the tip of the iceberg. [lipsrsealed]

Agree with you Bro [nod][nod][nod]

 

These Tiong Kok fellows used their sweat & labour under the damn hot weather working 14 hours a day [sweatdrop][sweatdrop][sweatdrop]

 

1.7K isn't consider much [gossip][gossip][gossip]

 

Maybe people see them as Tiong Kok Nans hence might consider this amount as alot [gossip][gossip][gossip]

Condo project considered small scale liao compared to the massive IR project. It's really tough sh*t at the worksite, not to mention exposure to all the safety hazards at a construction site [whip] Most of them get heat exhaustion nowadays [sweatdrop]
