Singapore Ministry has recommended an increase in wage threshold covering temporary workers, S Pass and Employment Pass holders. The new wage standard will be effective from 1st July 2011.
The government has considered this new salary recommendation to augment the level of skilled immigration at the level of local PMETs. The ministry of Manpower has said that this is an attempt to push companies to be further selective in hiring skilled immigrants. He further added that foreign skills are needed to be in pace with regional PMETs.
Singapore Manpower Minister G. K. Yong announced that the employers have to follow the new changes from 1st July and will be provided a time period of two years subjected to single-time renewal to meet the new salary criteria.
