Cloudywind's mom was making $700 a month for a 5-days-a-week gig at Tuas, as a cleaner. The contract was given to a new company who reduced the pay to $500 for a 5-and-a-half-day-week, plus no leave or medical leave for the first year.
What a nice cleaning company and how useful and profitable it is to hire old people for your business, just like the gahmen said!
Maybe they should ask the NTUC to help, you know, Singapore's Supreme Union of Them All that just celebrated May Day, for help. Oh maybe not. They are busy singing Lim Boon Heng's praises.
Er, but top marks to the new cleaning company for screwing hiring older workers! And top marks to the gahmen contract giver for giving the contract to this enlightened cleaning company!
My mom is working at the Tuas South Incineration Plant as a cleaner under the contract of a private cleaning company. The company pays her S$700 a month for a 5-days work week. The pay is not high, but at least reasonable.
Now, the cleaning contract has ended for this cleaning company and the contract has been given to another new cleaning company. And so my mom's new boss had a meet-the-people session to tell the cleaners his rules:
1. The pay is reduced to S$500
2. Now it has to be a 5.5 days working week
3. There will be a cut in manpower as there should not be more than 3 people working at an area, regardless how large the area space
4. No annual leave and sick leave for the first year
