When a new COE takes over a company... his immediate task is to cut cost for obvious reason. One of the measures he normally takes would be looking at the salary. After a re-structuring exercise, many will lose their jobs and many would have pay cut.
The recent pay adjustment for teachers was certainly a bonus. It appears that, form the past, correct me if I am wrong, when a new Minister for Education helms the ministry, teachers would get a pay rise and also extras perks. Do u know that teachers enjoy other benefits that were not given to other civil servants?
I dont know the salary of a teacher..
So join MOE and become a teacher if you make the cut!
