Overcoming COVID-19 Together: Supplementary Solidarity Budget 2020 Advisory

Dear Fellow ASPRI Members,

On 7 Apr 2020, ASPRI released a Solidarity Budget 2020 Advisory with recommendations for low-wage foreign workers.

This supplementary advisory seeks to address some of the feedback received pertaining to workers earning a higher basic salary.

For workers earning higher basic salary (more than $600), member companies are encouraged to pay a proportionally higher stipend no less than 75% of the basic monthly salary or $750.

While we understand that pay structure for companies may differ, these advisories serve to provide members with a common reference point. 

Members are encouraged to brief their workers and provide a forum for clarification.

Let us take a unified and cohesive approach to overcome this crisis together.

For and on-behalf of ASPRI 12th Executive Council
