When the British were in Singapore, they were being paid weekly & they
argued that Singaporeans were actually being cheated into believing that the
13th month pay is a bonus.
Singaporeans are being paid monthly which is equivalent to 4 weeks pay coz
there are 4 weeks in a month. As the British were paid weekly, it worked out
to the same.
You see, there are 7 days in a week.
4 weeks in a month.
12 months in a year.
Then 12 months should work out to 48 weeks only.
But 1 year worked out to 52 weeks. Hence the 13th month pay (bonus).
So, the British argued that there is in fact no bonus at all???
