Thread: ERP rates going up again for third time this year

    You really think that they only count on sg ppl to increase the population.

    Wait till they open fully the cranes for the chinese immigration.

    First, universities to form them. Let's get the smart ones. Second, welcome the rich businessmen to settle in a clean, safe and efficient place.

    Finally, All kind of good reasons to get the chinese skilled workers that are smart and willing to get a better (but still cheap) salary here.

    I have nothing against immigration or chinese people. And I do NOT say it is a bad thing. But this is where some of the energy will and must come from in order to increase the numbers.

    Slowly and you will not perceive it so soon.

    want to promote having dinner with family, and yet put ERP from city after working hours. We have to pay to go home as well. SG wants more children? Fat hope with all these rising cost...

My thoughts are this is just the start.... in the next four years till elections.... more increases to be expected. Our pay increases? Well it all depends on what industry you are in.... if you are in banking and civil service then good for you. If not.... well... you may want to consider switching careers.
    Problem is the people that you mentioned which are rich only accounts to a mere 10% or less of the 4 million plus people in Singapore. The majority of us will still suffer........if all this goes up. Let's not even compare to other countries. If everything that can go up, I think we should start to save more money for rainy days to come.

    Singapore everything you do must pay. The problem here, is when they gave rebates everyone praise. When they squeezed you to death nobody complains. As usual pay and pay makes the country rich.
    Think of concepts and work towards it.

    REM use to sing : "Losing my religion".

    Maybe, I'll play this song to a few friends that may need it.

    For me? I lost it a long time ago.

    Put it this way, no point whining here cos the result will be the same. Prices will increase and the gap will widen whether you like it or not. You are abled and you have a choice.. either work hardand cross over or whine forever and stay on the other side of the gap..... Besides I gather many here are students? You have many more years ahead.... think big and work towards it instead of identifying yourselves with the poor.... instead aspire to be those who are successful.

    Complain, whine, bitch about the government, the party and 20 years later, still the same party in power. Why? Because they provide a good environment for all despite the complaines. Like it or not.. if you work hard, you make it.. if you dont then sorry....... no free lunches. Unless one has the courage to vote for an alternative then just have to accept decisions.

    Not Sure will our income will go up up also ....
    Guys, we should take a step back to thank the Singapore's government about our High HDI (comparable to first world countries like the US? Europe., Australia and the likes) and low corruption rate ( lowest in the whole of Asia) Furthermore, our education system has transformed singapore into a good money making hub... look at the rest of the countries around us... you prefer there meh?

    Then complain about singapore being ex... Hello? Prices go in accordance to our economic status...Other countries would have their problems....

    Nice Cheap food and housing? Clothes also cheap? what about their security? how about their quality?

    Other country better pay? More beautiful sceneries? how about their taxation? how about their general standard of living...

    PLEASE, if another place is really that good, everyone go liao... still stay here complain.
    what i feel important should be that we make the best use of such an optimum enviroment we have been given since young and not complain so much like the govt./rich people owe us like that.



    Thanks,
