    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 Friday's Backchat: social welfare spending cuts, and the LeaveHomeSafe app…

    The Social Welfare Department has told NGOs that receive government funding that a planned one percent cut in recurrent expenditure for the next financial year will trickle down to them.

    However, Secretary for Labour & Welfare Law Chi-kwong gave assurances that social welfare payments and subsidies for the elderly won’t be affected.

    This comes as a new survey found that the pandemic has affected the earnings of HongKongers — driving many into debt — while the latest government projections indicate that the number of families living in subdivided flats will exceed 127-thousand in the next decade — a record high.

    So, what will be the effect of the planned welfare budget cut? Is now the right time to do this?

    From 9:15am, we’ll talk about how people are coping with the new requirement for most people going to restaurants, cinemas, and other designated venues to use the LeaveHomeSafe app.
