As of 2017 there are nearly 300,000 foreign workers in the construction sector. Most come from Bangladesh. Many pay a fee of at least average $8,000 to their agents to work here in Singapore. With a salary of average $20/day despite working long hours, these foreign workers continue working in Singapore in hopes of bringing a better future for their families back home in Bangladesh.

Under Singapore Contract of service, it is required to have basic salary which can be calculated hourly, daily or piece-rated work. However, unlike other developed countries, Singapore has Employment of Foreign Manpower Act (EFMA) which still does not have an official minimum wage.

Join me to urge the Ministry of Manpower to review the stipulated minimum wage for these migrant workers. Every pledge matters.
