Technically, she is right... we want good people, not money face people.

Money face people won’t work and give you face when you give them slightly lesser dough. I won’t want such people in my government.

First Chief Minister of Singapore David Marshall was paid $96,000





Back when we were a fishing village





When POTUS was only paid $100,000
That's President of the United States for those ignorant Edmwers, the majority on here by my estimates



Most powerful nation in the world






Daft sinkies, both sides, 70 percenters and 30 percenters, we're too stupiak to pay cheap



Wake dafark up, we always paid TOP DOLLAR

The old guards took low pay but achieved alot. Read already sound like on the contrary, its the current batch that takes alot but achieve very little. Ironic as it may seems.

Money face people won’t work and give you face when you give them slightly lesser dough. I won’t want such people in my government.
Not taking sides, but think to greater extent, the actions of current hint alot of nothing but greed. Its not that the existing pay low. In fact, the existing pay is more than majority of the commoners out there. What they kpkb is that the pay is not high enough for their greed.

Thus, think this kind of money people don't quite see how well they can serve the public. For their hearts and mind would not be on the people first and foremost but the money.

When the pay is more than majority of the people, that should be enough. The aim is to pay them enough to do something, but not enough to do nothing. Comparing the pay-achievements of the people in the past who took little and do alot, and existing who take alot and do little. Think the saying couldn't be more true somewhat.

Those that sincerely want to serve the people, do something good for the people, would do it no matter how much the pay. Those that don't want to serve, no matter pay them how much, they also won't sincerely serve the people, will still keep kpkb pay not enough (look at alot of the current).

Moreover, its not that they are not paid well enough, when their pay are already more than majority of the people. If like that still not enough for them, then think it really shows their incompetence somewhat. They really should not be serving the people.

Cause when they are taking way more than people yet they still feel not enough, how do they expect the people feel, whom they suppose to take care of, yet live the life with way so much little than them, when they have so much also still not enough.

They suppose to make the people life better. The majority people make more, they get more. If the majority people not getting much, why should they be paid a cent more.

By posting this it showed u do not know the issue at all

What happened such that the pinky is now paid 4 times more than the US president?

Are we going to pay 10 times of US President some time down the road?

And comparing US President to pinky, seriously?

Marshall quoted his 1950s salary in inflation-adjusted 1990s dollars during his interview.
