    On Friday's Backchat, challenges Hong Kong youth face.

    A new study suggests young people in the city generally do not have high expectations for society, but they refuse to ‘lie flat’ – a phenomenon where teenagers opt to take a break from relentless work, or just do the bare minimum to get by.

    The University of Hong Kong and the Child Development Initiative Alliance said young people they surveyed were concerned about their careers and life planning due to the pandemic and social movement, urging the government to offer more opportunities for them to climb up the ladder.

    What do Hong Kong youth need? What more can we offer?

    After 9.15am, we’ll have an overview of this year’s Food Expo which will last until next Monday.

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

    主持人:Janice Wong and James Ockenden

    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

    9:15am-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.
