Be as it may, Singapore still has to deal with the process. It could take a long way ahead, specially when it comes to consultation with the stakeholders - unions and the the employers.

Workers are then expected to employ patience as time goes on.

In the May Day Rally also, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong pointed out that unions do play pivotal roles in the plight of Singapore in defeating the supporters of the communist groups, who are mainly in the business of opening the economy to spur foreign funds.

May Day Rally: Some of the points raised by Singapore's Prime Minister:
Retirement and Re-employment Act (RRA) is an important legislation to help older workers continue working
RRA has been in effect for two years. Glad that many older workers have benefitted
RRA allows those who are 62 to be re-employed. It reflects our commitment to help our seniors 
I know older workers want to work beyond 65. I fully understand
But there is no simple solution. Older workers would like to retain their current job and pay. However, at 65, we are not as strong as before
