    Taxi fare in Singapore is still quite reasonable.

    Beside price increase is part and parcel of inflation.

    and best of it all, the price of tea oso shot up along with kopi.

    yes i know, its only 10cents.. some ppl earn thousands a day, yes yes.

    everything up price. mcdonald up price too and their fillet-o-fish shrunk in size.
    You're only looking at coffee bean prices. How about his petrol costs, his home electricity bill, his daily expenses, his rental? If everything else increases and he still charges the same for his coffee, doesn't he become relatively poorer? He needs to increase prices to keep up with his expenses.

    This is all part and parcel of inflation. People don't understand and just grumble when it hurts their own pocket.

    IIRC, Comfort gave their CEO $1mil bonus a few years back, and there was an uproar abt this issue from the cab drivers when it was announced. Talking abt cab companies not making money...

    now, greed for more money is not a bad thing is it ? time to change new jobs seek higher pay , ask for higher pay , hop hop hop , may the cycle of high life in singapore begins.


    note :
    high life- high paying cost of life. ( either get high pay or pay for things at higher price)

    at the end of the day , some 1 will be richer , some 1 will live simpler , so who will it be...................

    Let's see...

    SMRT said they had to increase public transport fares due to people cheating and not paying when they board the buses. Are you one of those? If you are, you are partly responsible. They say increase is due to the higher salaries of the bus drivers. Are you one of them? If you are, please smile more and be happier a bit. The increase has led to a profit of $240m. So uh, in millions? Profits? Wait, so is this a public service company or is it a corporate one?

    People will get use to it to pay at this price and is norm to them for duration for 5 years. So next election they will still vote them and repeat over again. Things start to increase.....

    Taxi fare go up, assuming taxi rental go up as well in proportion as well, taxi driver's earnings will shrink? Of cos, that's going by this logic. The winners are still after all, the shareholders and the big bosses.

    buy more shares, sure to go up in the long run

    if the company is not doing so well, they will increase the fares

    People grumble even if they understand. Inflation affects everyone, but not everyone can pass on the costs of inflation to someone else.
