    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.

    Special edition: 2024-25 budget (part 1)

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Paul Zimmerman

    On Thursday's special edition of Backchat, we're examining the 2024-25 budget.

    Delivering his financial blueprint at the Legislative Council on Wednesday, the Financial Secretary Paul Chan announced a wide range of measures—from the much-expected removal of all remaining property curbs to the extension of tax concessions for electric vehicles, and $65 million to help develop Hong Kong into a green maritime fuel-bunkering centre.
    However, there was a mixture of good and bad news about Hong Kong’s economy. Unemployment is down, while both economic growth and visitor arrivals are up. But so too is the budget deficit, which will surpass HK$100 billion this year—almost twice last year's forecast.
    And although there are no plans for a sales tax, some other taxes are increasing, with the government planning to collect a 3% Hotel Accommodation Tax.

    We find out more.
