Emergency relief of long-unemployed citizens of Singapore sign now

That the government of Singapore more specifically the Prime Minister Mr. Lee Hsien Loong will lower the fees in respect of provisions of essential critical services under a special non-welfare relief-of-hardship scheme to temporarily relieve the prolonged hardships of long-unemployed citizens and their immediate dependent families as follows:-

















(a) Lower the fees of provision of utility services (water/electricity) by 20\% across the board (not necessarily tantamount to subsidy) with the discount or rebate being borne by a system of endowment fund allocated from 20\% of national reserves (currently US$130 billions) so as to lower the persistent social problems due to inabilities of unemployed citizens to pay for living expenses as a result of current high costs relating to these market-based fees;

















(b) Put on hold for a period of 5 years any further fee increases in provision of utility services.

















(c ) To cease charging the portion of costs of provision of utility services attributable to fixed asset/infrastructure/land components of costs as lands and fixed/infrastructure costs were either acquired by the state at no costs or nominal costs, already paid under taxation or could be easily borne by annual budget surpluses or regular taxations. Such reversal of fees in respect of essential utility services could be alternatively borne by profit-making departments and ministries charging market-level fees e.g. sales of commercial sites, public housing and vehicle excise/COE/ERP.

















(d) Lending unemployment relief loans (capped at $5,000) financed from 20\% of national reserve at 0\% interest for 3 years to assist employers in engaging long-unemplyed citizens over 6 months so as to incentivise employers to helping to clear backlog of persistent unemployed.
