    Proposed salary increase for civil servants / Privacy concerns over call filtering apps

    On Monday’s Backchat, we’re talking about proposals to increase civil servants’ wages. Public sector workers could see their salary increase by up to 5.47 percent if the government approves results of the latest pay trend survey.

    The survey — which gathered data from more than 110 private firms — points to rises of 4.01 percent for senior civil servants, 4.32 percent for middle-ranking workers and 5.47 percent for junior staff.
    Civil servant unions have expressed support towards the proposals, citing the need for the public service to remain competitive amidst growing competition from the private sector.
    Would an increase be justified?
    After 9:45, we look into the privacy risks of using call filtering apps.

    Alleged language discrimination on a Hong Kong-bound flight / Cheung Chau Bun Festival

    主持人:Andrew Work and Janice Wong

    On Thursday’s Backchat we’re talking about the sacking of Cathay cabin crew who were apparently caught on tape disparaging a mainland passenger. An audio clip that has sparked outrage on mainland social media contains what seems to be a conversation between cabin crew poking fun at a passenger who asked for a 'carpet' instead of a 'blanket' in English. The airline has repeatedly apologised for the incident, and swiftly sacked three staff members. Chief Executive John Lee has expressed dismay at the apparent discrimination -- saying the incident was 'vile', and that it has damaged Hong Kong's reputation for being respectful, courteous and inclusive. Is bias and discrimination a widespread problem in the service industry? Or is this an isolated case? How welcoming is our service industry to our guests and customers? After 9:45, we’ll talk about the Cheung Chau Bun Festival that will take place on Friday. Let us know what you think. You can leave a message here on our Facebook page, email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or give us a call on 23388266.
