Employers also are encouraged to comply with the council’s recommended wages for foreign cleaners, landscape workers, and security officers, the Singapore government said.Under the PWM minimum wage requirements effective July 1, increases for the monthly minimum wages for cleaners in the office and commercial industry and the food and beverage industry sectors are to be as follows:
The PWM wages required to be paid monthly to security sector employees are not to be adjusted July 1 and are to remain S$1,700 ($1,233.14) for senior security supervisors, S$1,500 ($1,088.06) for other security supervisors, S$1,300 ($942.99) for senior security officers, and S$1,100 ($797.91) for other security officers. Monthly minimum wages required to be paid by landscaping sector employers remain S$2,100 ($1,523.28) for landscape supervisors, S$1,700 ($1,233.14) for assistant landscape supervisors, S$1,500 ($1,088.06) for landscape technicians, and S$1,300 ($942.99) for other landscape workers.
