as long as our govt needs to provide a pro-investment climate to create jobs here, the needs of employees will be secondary. the first need is perpetual.

a pro-investment climate necessarily entails a pro-foreign 'talent' policy. eg. if a investor pumps $ into spore, logically, his needs will include permitting him to bring in whoever he wants.

read it from some survey that we are one of the top few countries with IT professionals who keeps on getting certification..
so if you are a network person..you get your ccna..then your ccnp..then your ccie...etc etc etc..it's a vicious cycle..never ending
so much for a paper chasing society

it looked like you are doing a research paper on this. MOM and/or some university professors may provide you with some labour figures you need.

A few things to expect:

1) You're not an asset, you're a tool
2) Tools can be replaced, ANYTIME, even the next day is UAT or sign off.
3) OT is not expected, it's a MUST.
4) Lower pay gets you the job.
5) Whatever qualification you hold, you're tasked to do 1 level lower work (degree do diploma, masters do degree, phd do master, ocassionally phd do diploma work - a case in my current co)
6) You must work hard and not smart
7) Never ever try to improve the army (oops I mean the project)
8) There are people who always spoil market (OT OT and OT)
9) There are always layers of fat in the middle of the management
10) You don't need a brain to be a boss.

Hope it helps. :)
