Halimah Yacob urges women to rejoin the workforce
Women should not worry if they want to rejoin the workforce, said Minister of State for Community Development, Youth and Sports Halimah Yacob.
In fact, doing so would bolster their families' finances, provide greater stability for their children, and help them save up for their own retirement, she added.
"I think you would feel a greater sense of security if you could also save for your own retirement through work," said Madam Halimah at the inaugural Flexi-work Seminar held at the Woodlands Regional Library on Saturday.
Speaking to an audience of mostly women at the event, she urged them to tap a special package of courses offered by the training unit of Muslim self-help group Mendaki.
