Intent of Workfare

Workfare payouts are targeted at lower-income workers with less household support, with higher payouts for older workers. Workfare can comprise up to an extra 30 per cent of the worker's monthly income.

For example

From 2020, a 65-year-old worker earning $1,200 a month would receive $333 more through Workfare monthly, of which $200 goes into his Central Provident Fund (CPF).

Workfare and Progressive Wage Model (PWM)

Workfare and Progressive Wage Model (PWM), together with many other support measures, have uplifted low-wage workers while keeping employment levels high and unemployment levels low. They are a clear expression of our social solidarity and by no means inferior to a minimum wage.
