What are the Problems A Security Officer facing in Singapore?
Many Singaporeans do not know or care much about the 150,000 Singaporean and Permanent Resident full time employees who earned below the S$1,000-line in 2012. The plight of these groups of low wage workers was further highlighted when National Wage Council (NWC) announcement of a minimum monthly increment of S$60 guideline was met with protests from employers and their clients.
