PWM incomes for workers without risking job loss

98.3% are already earning more than $1300 a month. PWM will be extended to all sectors.

With the PWM for the Lift and Escalator ready to phase in and the proposal for the Waste Management sector submitted, the number earning less than $1300 will be further reduced.

With sectorial benchmarks for sectors currently without a PWM, what WP wants to achieve with MW is already achieved through PWM, WIS and these other policy measures.

menial work

There are people who work out of a need and there are people who work because they want to stay active and escape from the boredom of staying at home.

We don't need to deny the second category of people in order to acknowledge and help the first.

We should not take away the right of the elderly to work to stay active if they are still fit to work (even if it is cleaning work).

What we need to do is to RESPECT them for the work that they do. You can do that by acknowledging their existence, thank them for the work they do. If not for them, you would not have a clean place to enjoy your food.
