Better pay planned for security, landscape sectors
Security, landscape industries next to have progressive wage models
THE security and landscape industries are next in line to have progressive wage models.
Labour MP Zainal Sapari said yesterday at a seminar that the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) is working to implement such a wage model for these two sectors.
Launched last year, the progressive wage model sets out a career ladder with pay standards for low-wage workers. It aims to boost salaries through upgrading skills and restructuring jobs.
The announcement follows reports that salaries for airport trolley handlers were nearly doubled from $580 to $1,000 last month. Low-wage health-care workers also saw a 10 per cent boost in salaries in the past year.
