Check out how we celebrated Labour Day this year.
At this year's Budget Debate in Parliament, various Labour MPs came forward to talk about a wide segment of the workforce: low wage workers, PMEs, new job entrants, women workers and the self-employed. This Spotlight captures their voices.
With a better educated population and as Singapore moves towards a knowledge-based economy, more PMEs are joining the workforce today. As such, the NTUC PME Alignment Team is rolling out various initiatives and programmes to expand its outreach and advocacy to PMEs.
