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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
High time for "you know who" to look deep into this problem liao before a social structural breakdown happens in IndoIndiChinaFilipAngmopore. Then its showtime. Sad!
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.
