Until recently, in addition to Swee Say, his predecessor as NTUC head was in the cabinet.
Yet their presence in the cabinet has not prevented the real wages of bottom 25% of workers from declining in the last 11 years or so.
Nor has it slowed the growth of the cost of HDB flats. Once, one could repay the loan in 10 yrs or less, then 20 yrs. Now it’s getting closer to 30 yrs.
