What is the Progressive Wage Model?

The Progressive Wage Model (PWM) helps to increase wages of workers through upgrading skills and improving productivity. It is currently implemented in various sectors such as cleaning, security and landscape sectors.

Tripartite Workgroup on Lower Wage Workers

In October 2020, the Tripartite Partners  formed a Tripartite Workgroup on Lower-Wage Workers (TWG-LWW) to explore measures to further uplift the wages and well-being of lower-wage workers. Over 10 months, the Tripartite partners consulted more than 1,800 individuals from Unions, Employers, members of the public and lower wage workers. In August 2021, the TWG-LWW released a report with 18 key recommendations. The recommendations can be found here
