    SG small country so most goods must import from overseas. Your car, computer, phone, vegetables, fish, rice, etc, most from overseas. Low birth rate for certain races so must import some people from overseas to maintain the ratio.

    good idea. give up citizenship. Migrate to an angmo country (US/UK/Canada preferred) and take up citizenship then come back as FT in managerial position and speak with fake accent. Sure treated as 1st class one. esp the Brazilian restaurant at 6th Ave.

    Just a caution: Choice of angmo country must be careful. Dun anyhow migrate to 2nd class angmo country where Singapore dun wan. Skali, kena play out.

Even China, which wants foreign investments badly, will make sure their citizens are not short-changed in any business transaction between them and foreigners. But then again, who are we to compare with China.
    Maybe our govt is putting us to the challenge...
    Give us exposure to the rest of the world how we can be treated as second class somewhere else... So why travel when you can experience it in your native country?

    With the damage done so far to Singaporeans, it is no wonder why our birth rates are declining.

    Seeing the response in this thread, I read up more on FT articles and realized:
    Pertaining to the recent reduced subsidies: The cash amount impacted by education subsidies to PRs is a joke (simply too little). On the medical side, I pity those construction and rubbish removal WP holders though. They have no medical subsidies and benefits, and I don't think employers would cover them with insurance though. Most EP holders and PRs typically have their employers to cover them for healthcare benefits, so thats of no / little concern to them.

    Here's a link to another forum talking about this.

    But think about it... compared to the 'FTs' that take longer leaves (to go home) I think our reservist is considered nothing...
    wah, Singaporean at your place DO NOT have to take leave huh?

    I thought all employee have the equal number of leave days? how the spend it, is really up to each own preference (and of course, subject to approval of managers)?

    Nice huh keep blaming other people

    If we reclaim enough land we can we as big as Australia.

    If we ban condoms and birth control pills we can be as populous as China.

    Just think about the possibility. We can be world No.3 Super Power.

    actually hor, we only got ourselves to blame. The jeng-hu knows that too many of us are spending too much time on hip-siong and dun wanna work. So, they have no choice but to hire FTs.

    I like your idea man. Only problem is that our neighbours will complain that the little red dot become a big red blotch.

    If you are a Singaporean worker, answer these:
    1. Can you go OT tonight?
    2. Can you do Midnite shift?
    3. This Sunday, can you do OT to complete an urgent order, say from 7am?
    4. We are short of staff, can you help out in the cleaning of the staff/workers toilet?
    5. Can you please help out next 2 months stay in our branch office in HCM?
    6.
    7. ... etc...

    Now, how to blame the Sg bosses? ...
    should blame the government to make our life so comfortable in Sg ....
    always the Light, .... always.

    We have to support the economy of Japan by buying Canon and Nikon.

    If they are prosperous they will import more from Singapore and come as tourists.

    Singapore is always the eventual winner.

    you've got a point. the coin has 2 sides. Most of the time, the answers to the above Qs is a NO.
    I think most of us have become too pampered by the jeng-hu that we have become complacent and lack life's survival instincts. We become so dependent on our 'parents' and when they wanna take away the leash, we start to cry.....
    and most of the young theses days expect high salary when they graduate from poly and within 1 yr wanna be manager ie have pple report to them.

    In my co,. during staff appraisal, this 22-yo gal complained that she is not a manager when she is a poly grad. Damn shallow.

    the ratio's worse in my company... but the thing is that many of them converted to PRs so don't need EP and no quota affected
