CEOs shielded from Covid-19

PS> Based on a Reuters report.

Yes, foreigners STILL watch US politics (and business).

And some get off by starting threads with posts that belong in existing threads.

The suitable thread no longer exist.

Covid-19 News/Updates


Perhaps that’s a clue that the entire discussion jumped the shark and we should all stop flogging the dead horse.

(Sorry for the digression into American-speak. I guess we just can’t get out of our xenophobic bubble. For the benefit of our non-American participants, I added a link to explain the euphemism.)

It’s here:

If you feel like continuing the conversation from a closed thread start a new thread with a link to the old one.

No I’m perfectly fine with starting anew, when required.

Translation: There’s always another dead horse I can flog.

Which horse has died; foreigners following US news, or American CEOs being overpaid and over protected, while ordinary US workers are the opposite?

This particular article was sourced from Reuters but appeared in a foreign publication and TV News Channel aimed at an Asian audience.

No don’t give up so easy. I thought you two would be more persistent in your attempts to intimidate me. This is un-American.

which countries politicians and civil servants have taken a pay cut?

The US of course. Always the leader in difficult times.

Wrong answer? OK then it must be Singapore:

They can afford it, being the best paid politicians and civil servants in the world.

The one month initial period was extended to three for the Ministers:

This pay cut goes to cover the cost of bonuses for those public servants who are on the “front Line” in the fight against the pandemic:

PS> It is called good governance and leadership. (Eat your heart out in the US and Britain)

how big was the pay cut, perhaps their salary was dropped down as low as the rest in the world?

I don’t know. You are living there, what does your Buddy and Matey network tell you?

This Clarkson broker obviously didn’t think that Singapore Law applied to him and his Buddies/Mates:

The days when being Brit, or Ang Moh, shielded you from yje Law is LOOOONG gone. (It was nice when it lasted)

they are being tough with the lockdown, lots got warnings, second case was prison.
No mask in public is also asking for prison
Rightly so.
