And if they have no kids and their parents got their own retirement $.. then they got all the money for themselves.

Teacher salary is not stupidly high, but it's not 'eat grass' low either.
GLB leh. Ya no kids and all. Maybe that's why.
Can spend so much money.

Don't pin hopes on this kind of thing. Expect nothing, be pleasantly surprised. The pay revision cycle has gone the way of Moore's Law. If you are looking for good income growth, MOE is not the right place.

You need to temper your expectations if you want to survive in the long run in MOE. Overpromising statements are the bread and butter of making things look rosy from an outsider's perspective. It's just politics. Remember when political office holders said the system would better support teachers' mental well-being? What did we get? And that was only the tip of the iceberg.

If you bank your hopes and dreams on empty words, you will never reach contentment while in this service. Focus on the positive things, or, leave service and go elsewhere to chase what you feel makes you happier.

Thanks cher I learnt something new!

But this law seems to apply lesser to current statistics...Heard that salary review in 2018/2019 fell through? Increments cut (permanently?) since 2020...No longer following historical trends haix

This is NOT insider information, but given the current high inflation environment, there is definitely going to be some policy tension between helping our salary growth match inflation, as well as trying not to contribute to worsening inflation.

As basic demand and supply goes, increasing people's purchasing power doesn't help to reduce inflation. That's why the govt doesn't give handouts to everyone willy-nilly.

Hence, don't be surprised if the outcome of the salary revision discussions go either way. After all, EOs are not considered to be a low income group that requires income support in trying times. At least not in the same way as OSOs, TSOs and also the lower ends of generic schemes.

Not insider but any HR would think about salary considerations should be primarily based on attrition and retention considerations, vis-a-vis what the market can offer. That said, teachersí skills are not directly transferable to the larger market in general, so the longer you are in service, the less incentive is needed to retain you. Itís the same principle why connect payout peaks rather than increases all the way.

This would be HR's point of view, yes, but they are not the only decision making party here. A salary revision (or not) would be the final decision of PSD, which would also have several other policy considerations, including the national economic perspective.
