    Pay rises for civil servants and a shorter work week; Sinovac's Omicron-targeted vaccine trial

    8:30am-9:15am: civil servants’ pay rise and shorter work week

    8:30am-9:00am: Francis Mok, Executive Council Member, Hong Kong Institute of Human Resource Management

    8:30am-9:15am: Vera Yuen, Lecturer, Faculty of Business and Economics, University of Hong Kong

    9:00am-9:15am: Dr Quratulain Zaidi, Hong Kong-based Clinical Psychologist from MindnLife Psychology Practice

    9:15am-9:30am: Sinovac Omicron vaccine trial

    9:15am-9:30am: Ivan Hung, co-convenor of the Expert Committee on Clinical Events Assessment Following COVID-19 Immunisation

    On Wednesday's Backchat, we will look at pay rises for civil servants, and the merits — or lack thereof — of a shorter work week.
    The new executive council is proposing a 2.5-percent pay rise for civil servants — far lower than the recommendations from the Pay Trend Survey Committee based on a survey of private sector pay. Civil service chief Ingrid Yeung explained the decision for a smaller pay hike was made after taking into account a variety of factors including the state of the economy, and the government’s fiscal position.
    What do you think? Is 2.5 percent the right figure? How will this affect the private sector, if at all? And what do you make of New World Group’s decision to give some of its staff half a day off on Friday for two months this summer? It’s designed to be a family-friendly measure to improve the well-being of staff.
    So is a 4.5-day work week the future? Or is it just not practical?
    After 9:15am, we'll look at a new clinical trial by Sinovac of a new vaccine specifically targeting Omi-cron.

    On Thursday’s Backchat, rent control, and a cruise to nowhere.

    To better protect families living in subdivided flats, the government will table legislation introducing rent control for this type of accommodation to Legco next Wednesday. And if all goes well, officials say rent control for subdivided flats could be introduced as early as the end of this year.

    The proposals include introducing standard contracts, and capping rent increases at 15% after a fixed two-year tenancy period. Landlords who don’t comply could face a fine of at least HK$10,000.

    This comes as a new study by a concern group found that landlords are still overcharging tenants for electricity and water. And others are worried that landlords would immediately raise rent or evict tenants before the legislation takes effect.

    What do you think of the new law? How effective will the measures be? Can rent control be used more widely - not just in subdivided units? What are the pros and cons of rent control?

    From 9:15am-9:30am, we’re discussing a cruise to nowhere that's going... nowhere.
