Should Singapore implement a Universal minimum wage of $1300 as suggested by Pritam Singh?

Yesterday, WP leader Pritam Singh brought up the issue of implementing a Universal minimum wage (UMW) of $1300 in Singapore instead of having the current Progressive Wage Model (PWM). This has created somewhat of a hoo-ha in Singapore, with many Singaporeans surprisingly, offering differing views to his suggestion. What is Universal Minimum Wage? UMW is the basic wage that all employees MUST pay employees if it is implemented.
