Here are the "average monthly nominal earnings per employee by industry", according to the Monthly Digest of Statistics Singapore, October 2009.
They have fallen back to 2007 levels and productivity has plummeted, too, as mentioned in my previous post.
The "average nominal earnings per employee by industry" was 3,609 Singapore dollars (about $2,575) in the second quarter of this year — less than the 3,773 Singapore-dollar average pay cheque in 2007.
Here's another way of looking at the same figures.
Average monthly nominal earnings are computed using data from the CPF Board, says the report. They include bonuses but exclude employers' central provident fund (CPF) contributions. The figures include all full-time and part-time employees who contribute to the CPF and exclude all "identifiable self-employed persons", the report adds.
The actual figures are given in my previous post.
