MOM: Foreign PMETs Have Higher Pay Because They Are Deserving

The gross monthly income of full-timed employed residents who are professionals, managers and executives (PMEs) is higher compared to Singaporean citizens, said Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin in Parliament on Monday (Jan 19).

“As compared to Singaporean PMEs, the gross monthly income of resident PMEs is higher since Permanent Residents typically have to display good employability before they are granted residency,” Mr Tan said, in reply to a Parliamentary question from MP Patrick Tay Teck Guan.

For instance, the gross monthly income for PRs and Singapore citizens for the 50th percentile is S$7,018 and S$6,886, respectively, according to data from the Manpower Ministry.
