What is the Progressive Wage Model
The Progressive Wage Model (PWM) helps to increase wages of workers through upgrading skills and improving productivity.
What is it Developed by tripartite committees consisting of unions, employers and the government, the PWM helps to uplift lower-wage workers' wages.
Since being implemented, PWM sectors have raised wages at a sustainable and meaningful pace, without hurting the livelihoods of the lower-wage workers.
The PWM benefits workers by mapping out a clear career pathway for their wages to rise along with training and improvements in productivity and standards.
At the same time, higher productivity improves business profits for employers. Service buyers also enjoy better service standards and quality.
