Its the cold hard truth.... whatever one like it or not.
Like I said earlier... I'm a blue collar worker working for one of the public transportation company... whenever there is a farehike... S'porean would complain to no end... suggestion of greed, laziness and even unproductiveness will be all over the internet for months. Crieds of how pockets of S'porean are being hits appears page after page...
Everyone expect we to cut pay, cut cost, cut worker... to save their own pockets. But what about workers like me... who work 7 type of shifts, who work Sat, Sun and Public Holidays... won't we want/need a pay rise too ?? Out of a normal month of work... I have an average of about 6-8 days of rest (depending on shift)... and I also must work 4 days of OT just to keep my head above water and feed my family... and yet the public expect my company to cut pay so they need not pay more... ??!!
Hard Truth.... like it or not... everyone expect/demand/hope for a yearly pay rise... I'll wait for the day when someone volunteer to cut his/her pay... so that my cost of living don't goes up..
