Close your ear to the cry of the poor and no one will hear when you cry out. Maybe the answer is to strive to lift everyone out of poverty. Good luck. Some start in sewer and do not like it there so they climb out of it. Where there is a will there is a way!

50% "levy" = income tax on this pittance!!!!!
Current income tax (levy) flows in the budget of the government.
Pay all the other workers & staff in Singapore also
so high (50%) income taxes ????
The solution to end this inhuman exploitation:
Minimum wage per hour (as in Germany): 8,50 EUR or 12,60 S$

Maybe it all boils down to if you were maid which country would you like to live in? Don't know about you bros but Singapore would be at the top of my list probably. At least against the other places mentioned in this thread.
If you happen to be looking for a maid now. You will.find ex Hong Hong, Saudi, Malaysia, etc. If singapore fare so badly, why they wish to return?
Sion - you are looking for a maid?
hourly wage is EUR 12,60 or S$ 18,52
per month EUR 2064,00 or S$ 3034,00
(for the statutory minimum wage of EUR 8.50 or S$ 12,50
no "good" maid will work for you)

Some may say this hard, that hard, difficulties here and there, but over often the ones that make it are the ones who came from the toughest conditions, for they have the greatest reasons to. The people inbetween are either not hungry enough or already comfortable or always took the easier way out - quiting. So only mouth talk and fingers type, no real work or effort.
If one can stop complaining and start working and making changes...
WTB Manfrotto RC4 L Bracket
I once worked in a shipyard with many FT.
The Minister of Labour of the FT came to visit the workers at the shipyard. He appeared to be very concern about their well being and asked many questions including their incomes.
I was very touched and told the FT that they had a minister who care for them and looked after their welfare. To my surprise, the answer was otherwise. They told me that he was after their monies!.....Guess what?
If you want to do apple to apple comparison make it a wider range bro can not just focus on one aspect and blow it out of proportion...
Some of us have very telescopic views of things we forget to widen our vision and see more before we jump into conclusion... this is where conflicts and misunderstanding arises and also some extremist are using such tactics to stir anger and emotions.. Let's all take a deep breath and step out and view things from different perspective before we make any comments...

Why this gaga text and photos will not be deleted by the moderators??
Brutal exploitation and slavery of the people is a serious crime.
Or is this brutal crime against people in Singapore no offense?
