As leader, you must be prepared to accept feedback, no difference with government. No system is perfect nor it is designed to meet everybody needs. If a leader thinks there is no problem, then there is nothing to correct since they didn't recognise the problem.
Whether the leader sees it as a problem or not, the majority of the people wish has to be addressed. It is difficult to make comparison with other countries without fully understanding their situation and can be unique in nature.
TS started a very general question. Yes we as part of the country must contribute and many have done so. We look upon our leaders and we have expectations since they have made promises. When things didn't turn up to expectations, questions are expected. I am sure the leaders are not expecting solutions from the people but asking for patience while they think over them.
What can I do for my country if I lost my job to a foreigner?
Indian govt officials "irked" by Singapore govt not giving preferential treatment for Indian nationals in job market as agreed in bilateral economic pact.
"According to Indian officials involved in the negotiations, this is a violation of the services trade agreement under CECA. This will also adversely affect Indians who are working there as it might lead to job losses, especially for the middle level workers."

Not exactly 100% Natural but definitely the closest you can get to it
Many factors can contribue to a replacement. Basically they are attitude and skill. All the companies in Singapore value Singaporean who are skillful and who has positive atttitude. Would you as a boss replace them?
The other more important fact is, when a company 'restructure', did they hire new staff or really downsized? If they are recruiting even after letting go existing staff, anyone taking them to task? I remember in the early 70, a semi conductor company is famous for retrenching staff when production is down. (however, it is true there was an recession). When economy picks up, they have trouble recruiting people. Now people has accepted the fact that you can lose you job anytime. So how can one expect the same loyalty from staff?
In today's job market there is no such thing as loyalty to a company. I would like to be loyal but my company is busy thinking of getting rid of the old and bring in the cheaper young one. The older you become the higher risk of lossing your job. Thanks to the useless union and country policy which does not protect the worker. Pregnant woman also face the high chance of getting the sack. If the country wants more babies then be serious about it and solve all this problem. We had done a lot for the country by keeping silent, work our ass out while being exploited by our employer in order for the country to grow. What more can we do ? Work for free? Or is the what you can do for your country a reminder to keep our mouth shut and continue to be exploited by our bosses and Govt.

They are helping us to retire at 65 legally. Soon they will raise to 67. That would require company to continually hire us till we retire or die.
It is happening around the world. UK, USA, Japan and many others are doing it.
.....I was talking to a head hunter this morning and I asked him the attributes an employer would want to have when engaging a person.
....He mentioned: positive attitude, skillful, integrity. Money is the last in their minds.
.. if you are productive e.g. you can do the job of 2 or more persons, the company is more than willing to have you!
Ask yourself.. are you productive? Are you an asset or liability to the company?
