TAFEP – No job discrimination against PMETs, only misunderstanding

In the Today paper today there is an article ‘Allegations of bias against S’poreans top list of workers complaints’. But read the content of the article you will find the title misleading. All or most of the complaints about job discrimination against Singaporean PMETs are just alleged, not true. It is all a misunderstanding. The foreigners were employed and promoted because they were better and more suitable than the Singaporean PMETs according to Roslyn Ten, the general manager of TAFEP. ‘..many stem from misunderstanding and not from genuine bias’, and she urged the employers to explain to job seekers why they were not hired and not promoted.

This is in line with the findings by NTUC that confirmed Singaporeans really lacked the skills sets that the foreigners have. Singaporean PMETs should not complain anymore and should make serious efforts to learn from the PRC Chinese, India Indians, the Pinoys, Myanmese and all the foreigners why they have all the qualifications and skills sets that Singaporeans did not have.

Now that the truth is out, PMETs, please do not anyhow complain and spread lies. NTUC and TAFEP have confirmed you are NG. And please do not mislead Chuan Jin and MOM and make them run around like fools, even setting up Jobs Bank and FCF that are totally unnecessary and a waste of time and resources. Ok Chuan Jin, you can close down these two set ups. They are irrelevant. You have been misled.

Just to double confirm what this Roslyn said, and I quote the Today paper, ‘Reiterating that many unfair employment practices were largely due to miscommunication, she said clear cut cases of discrimination against Singaporeans are rare. “It’s really more of …perception,”’ What more can you say? No more arguments.

OK case close. No discrimination and please do not raise the issue of discrimination anymore. Two powerful pro Singaporean agencies and Singaporeans, one Patrick Tay, an Asst Secretary General of NTUC/Director of PME Unit and another, Roslyn Ten, a general manager of TAFEP said so. These are authoritative statements of truth, not misunderstanding or opinions.

Listen all PMETs, you deserved to be taxi drivers and security guards and stop complaining. As to our education system, how they failed to produce Singaporeans without the right skills sets is puzzling but not my problem. I am not paid millions to give you the answer. Thank you very much.

Singaporean PMETs are so lucky that the truth is out and now they know the real reason why foreigners are employed and promoted and preferred by employers. It is your fault. No more lame excuses.

PS. TAFEP stands for Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices. And when TAFEP said it is fair it must be fair. And when NTUC said you did not have the skills sets, you do not have the skills sets. Period.

To all Singaporean PMETs who have lost out to FTs, it IS you own fault that you do not have the right skill, not enough of the right qualification and experience to fill the jobs taken up by the better people from foreign countries. Just shut up and stop complaining. TAFED and NTUC have both said so. Please be content with security job and driving a taxi. That is what you are qualifies to do.

"...clear cut cases of discrimination against Singaporeans are rare. “It’s really more of …perception."

Agree. And since clear cut cases of discrimination against Singaporeans are rare, definitely it should affect much less than 40% of Singaporeans, tio bo?

That's why PAP could get 60% votes and queue to pay last respects to PAP founder LKY is so long. And this is the reality, not perception.

I think it may also be just a perception that PAP will lose more seats in the next GE, as compared to the last.

At least still can be a taxi driver. Lucky, some jobless!

Be a taxi driver in Singapore is not too bad.

My friend Michael, told me he could net net $3000 each month.

He is very happy!

Job discrimination against Singaporeans.
Can we thank Yew for this?
Is this a fitting Yewlogy and Leegacy for someone who hates Singaporeans?
Is this an unfair and untrue comment?

TAFEP stands for Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices. It is an alliance of three parties - the Government, employers and NTUC. If there is unfairness, what is NTUC doing about it? So Labour says there is no unfairness on the part of the employers; the employers are not going to shoot themselves in the foot by admitting that they have been unfair. And when the Government takes the line that foreigners create jobs for Sinkies, employers must have some leeway in preference for foreigners or else no job will be created for Sinkies.

The question is why are union members paying their union dues when the Government is such pro labour to the extent of setting up this alliance to ensure that Sinkies will have jobs?

"Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices is an alliance of three parties - the Government, Employers and NTUC." RB.

When the Government, with its Civil Service, Admin Service, Temasek Holdings, GIC, GLCs and Statutory Boards, is the largest Employer,

And NTUC is the Third Largest Employer, with all her subsidiary business organisations,

Together with all the other Employers - MNCs, SMCs and others,

The Tripartite becomes a deceptive pseudo name for the Gang of 3 Groups of Employers.

With this state of affairs, where do the workers stand?

They are definitely at the Mercy of the Gang of Employers.

Right or wrong?
