    why should we?it's OUR country.OUR soil.Our grass.
    foreign talents do bring in competition/stress/frustrations.i see that as a challenge to work harder.

    we engineers may be highly educated people but when it comes to money we are just outright dumb.... laywers and doctors have their fixed rates... engineers know nothing better than to undercut each other... no wonder our salaries are low.... even now that there is global shortage in capable civil engineers we are not able to raise the salaries dramatically... but then who would be happy to pay double or tripple for ones house....

    is that not a bit harsh... in certain fields you just dont have the homegrown talents... hence there is a need to bring in foreigners... this does not only apply to singapore, it applies to every country and is practised in every country...
    i dont think FT bring only stress and competition... one can learn as well...

    i guess most of us have come to a realisation stage ... no matter now much we earn ... it is never seems enough in sg.

    we are becoming like HK and Japan.. we may see graduates doing construction work while looking for their jobs.
