They are raising the fares for the MAIN REASON of keeping healthy PROFITS. What rising costs???
There are more to come. Taxi fare hike is on the way. All other things will increase as well.
Petrol prices increased 3 times over a month period without any valid reasons. SPC petrol company at the same time reported a surge in profit to 43% for this year. This is really outrages. People have written into ST forum on the petrol increase and the parties involved did not bother to respond at all. Till today, Singaporean still get fine if they did not fill up their tanks to 3/4 mark at the causeway. The petrol companies are laughing to the bank all these years and they are still protected by the law to ensure their sales will not go elsewhere.
MM Lee have mentioned or cautioned that Singapore should not allow the recent property prices to rocket up as it will hurt the economy and foreigner might find Singapore too expensive a place to stay. On the other hand, petrol prices and all other things are allowed to rise for no good reasons. Why the double standard in the approach to address raising cost?
Best of all..........the opposition parties are totally quite about these affairs when these affects the daily life of the heartlanders.
Firstly, the rent for a condo/hdb unit has gone up something like 20-30%, if not more. transport cost had gone up from last year, if you can still remember. many other daily essential items have gone up in price. But my pay has not gone up. I have no property to sell, neither do shares. Please tell me what I have benefited?
Citizen here deserve to eat the shi.t their loving govt drop for them... they were the choosen/prefered one right?
Don't know now kaoz pei for what.. nb....
That's purely theory on paper only.
Sg govt, ministries and stat boards wouldn't be where they are today if not for their "competitiveness". Are you sure that are not able to do a better job than those execs and directors in those companies.
The idea of private company are optimising resources and maximising profits are true.. they optimise by streamlining (read: cutting) routes and maximising profits by charging us more than necessary as shown in their fiscal reports, these companies have exceeds even Sg GDP growth.
Since when we have "duopoly".
All i can say is:
Thanks to the 66.6%.
