    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.

    2024-25 budget review: lifting of housing curbs / Electric vehicle support measures

    主持人:Andrew Work and Mike Rowse

    On Friday's Backchat, we talk about the lifting of property curbs -- also known as "spicy measures".

    Introduced over a decade ago to rein in speculation, the Special Stamp Duty (SSD), Buyer's Stamp Duty (BSD) and New Residential Stamp Duty (NRSD) are no longer needed to be paid when purchasing a home, in what the real estate sector hopes will attract more buyers. The measures were announced by the Financial Secretary Paul Chan on Wednesday.
    Speaking on a Cantonese phone-in programme following his budget speech, Mr. Chan said that this is the right time to get rid of the levies, citing little speculative activity and adequate home supplies.
    However, the minister highlighted that his administration would keep an eye on the market situation, and be ready to re-introduce the curbs if needed.
    After 9:45, we'll gather views on the extension of electric vehicle tax incentives.
