This Labour Day, our team at The Independent Singapore find ourselves reflecting on the invaluable contributions of Singapore’s workforce, whose dedication and resilience form the backbone of our society.

From early-morning MRT operators to late-night hospital staff, the hard work of millions ensures that our island nation thrives.

Labour Day is also a time to reflect on the work that goes into bringing you quality news. In Singapore’s dynamic media landscape, producing quality news can be an uphill battle.

With the rapid pace of information and the pressures of operating in a tightly regulated environment, the quest for authentic journalism requires courage and perseverance.

Our team at TISG understands this challenge all too well, and we work tirelessly to deliver content that speaks truth to power and illuminates issues from unique angles.

The road to quality journalism is paved with countless hours of research, interviews, and fact-checking. It demands a commitment to integrity, a willingness to ask tough questions, and a passion for uncovering the stories that others might overlook.

In a world where misinformation can spread at the speed of a click, our role as guardians of truth is more critical than ever.

Yet, the battle for quality news is not fought in isolation. It relies on the support and trust of readers like you. Each time you read, share, and engage with our content, you support independent journalism.

You recognize that diverse voices are essential to a healthy democracy and that critical inquiry strengthens our society.

On this Labour Day, let’s honour all workers, from those who keep our city running to those who keep us informed.

It’s a day to celebrate the human spirit, the collective effort, and the enduring belief that every role, no matter how big or small, contributes to the greater good.

As we take a moment to rest and recharge, let’s also remember the importance of supporting independent media. Your support allows us to continue our mission, to dig deeper, and to tell the stories that need to be told.
