Singapore's largest telco is freezing wages across the company, except for operational and support staff. Are you worried that your company might also impose a wage freeze if the COVID-19 situation persists and as business sentiment gets weaker?

Everyone will be worried about income stability

things will definitely get worse moving forward as less movement among people across countries means fewer resources in demand.

Just got to be careful and ride this out.

I don't mind a wage freeze if it means that I can keep my job. Having an income is better than having no income!
