Singapore minimum wage: 55,000 administrators, drivers across all industries to get minimum salaries from March 2023

Malay Mail, Singapore, 30 August 2021 - From March 2023, administrators in all companies across Singapore should be paid at least S$1,500 (RM4,634) a month, while drivers should receive a minimum of S$1,750.

This is part of the expansion of the Progressive Wage Model to apply to specific occupations across more occupations and industries.

The Progressive Wage Model sets out minimum pay requirements for workers at different skill levels and mandates wage increases in tandem with the workers’ training and skills.

In announcing the move, a workgroup comprising representatives from the Government, employers and labour movement said that this new approach would help lift the wages of workers in common jobs across different sectors, where no clear leader can front wage negotiations.
The application of the wage model to all administrators and drivers will benefit some 55,000 lower-wage workers, they said.

The move was among a list of 18 recommendations published by the workgroup today.

Mr Zaqy Mohamad, Senior Minister of State for Manpower who chaired the workgroup, said that the recommendations, when taken together, will ensure that 82 per cent of lower-wage workers in Singapore will receive some form of minimum level of progressive wages.
