Gpayroll - wages of staff

The wages for service staff has been a longstanding debate. These particular group of employees are subjected to long working hours, even longer overtime hours and nasty remarks from customers - all for a meagre hourly rate figure.

In countries like United States, service crew can rely on tips to boost their daily or monthly earnings. According to the United States Department of Labor, the minimum hourly rate that a tipped restaurant service crew in United States earn is USD2.13 (SGD2.85) per hour. In general, the tipping rate in United States ranges between 15% to 20% of the total bill, depending on the quality of service. Most of the time, these tips are for the service crew themselves to keep.

In Singapore, there is no minimum wage law implemented. However, service crew in Singapore can expected to earn only about SGD6 to SGD10 per hour. Moreover, tipping is not customary in Singapore - even in restaurants. In some places, such as airport, airport staff are forbidden from accepting tips.

With this single-figure hourly rate, coupled with the 10 hours and 6 days work week that service crew are expected to work, this brings their monthly salaries to around SGD1,000 to SGD1,500 at best. Is this amount sufficient for service crew to get by? Certainly not.

The solution? Raise the hourly wages for service crew or implement a tipping culture in Singapore.
