The signs of the miserables rebelling are beginning to show. On one corner, those against pay rise for workers. On the other corner, those who feel that the workers have been underpaid and need a boost in their income to keep pace with the high cost of living.
The interesting thing, who are the people standing up for the workers’ plight? We are hearing voices from the luminaries crying out for the workers, and some prominent members of the establishment. Conscience pricks? This is unheard off since the centuries of revolutions in France, Russia and China. Today, the human resource professionals are also standing up for the workers. They understand the lot of the workers and how they are coping with the rising inflation. They have pooh poohed the myth that workers can buy a decent public flat with a $1000 monthly income or things along this line of thinking.
Now, who are at the other corner that are against giving workers a decent pay rise, a decent income to live a decent life? Maybe they believe that the workers are having a really good time and a really good life. No need to pay the workers crazily. With half a million dollar of subsidies, the workers are all half a millionaire. They are the envies of the world.
