What a great idea
Recruit men from Nepal! Our police force and immigration officers are overworked. Many are leaving the services. There is a shortage of manpower. Why not recruit the men from Nepal to solve this shortage and make these services more efficient, and of course, at much cheaper cost. This is being suggested by Ravi Govindan in a letter in the ST today. And we can replace or reinforce those officers in Certis Cisco and Aetos as well. For such a great idea to deserve a big corner in our main media it must have be something worthy of consideration. And there is no shortage of supply to oursource these services to foreign mercenaries. If Nepal cannot provide the numbers we need, we can go for Bangladeshis, Indians and Chinese. Then we can free our highly educated local Singaporeans to take up better paying jobs. And if this proves successful, we can even recruit them for our armies and scrap National Services. The Singaporeans will be jumping for joy to leave the guarding of the country to foreigners and no more reservist duties to bother them. The hotels are doing very well engaging private agencies to run their security system. If hotels can do that, then there is no reason why a bigger hotel like Singapore cannot. Let's go for it.
