MOM taking 50 firms to task

MOM has taken 50 firms to task for not giving fair opportunities to employing Singaporeans and another 250 firms put on the watchlist. Is this enough after letting in 500,000 foreigners, so called talents to take away jobs from Singaporeans and still happily employed while many Singaporeans PMETs are unemployed or underemployed or resigned to early retirement? This pathetic situation has been going on for the last 10 to 20 years!

Think of the pain and suffering thousands of Singaporeans have gone through. Think of how many families got into financial trouble or even broke up. Think of the emotional suffering of Singaporeans seeking jobs but got rejected and rejected or not even called up for an interview. Think of the number of dejected cases, depression cases, Singaporeans losing confidence in themselves, some even became IMH cases. Think of the disappointment of parents for raising their children and putting them through the expensive education system. Think of the disappointment of young Singaporeans after spending their parents’ life savings and unable to find a decent job, some were lucky to end up with part time job but not enough to feed themselves, how these young people felt, unable to repay the kindness and generosities of their parents, wanting to be filial but unable to, and feeling ashame and useless.

Are the MOM and the govt doing enough to help the Singaporeans suffering because of the 500,000 foreigners here and depriving Singaporeans from getting a job to feed themselves and to have some pride and dignity as an individual? Oh MOM is partnering foreign agencies to look for jobs for Singaporeans, where, overseas? If Singaporeans could not find jobs in Singapore, how are their chances to finding jobs overseas, to be what, cooks, gardeners? Seow!

What is wrong with this bloody system? Why are Singaporeans being forced out from their homes and country when there are 500,000 foreigners happily employed here? I look around Raffles Place and MBFC and at the young foreigners and cannot believe my eyes that what they are doing cannot be done by Singaporeans? There are easier solutions to helping Singaporeans to find a decent job than trying to send them overseas. Please stop doing nonsense and get the basics right. There is no need to teach million dollar ministers how to do their job unless they are unworthy of their million dollar salaries. It is time to be serious and do the necessary and the due diligence. If they still cannot think out of the mess, just think of immigration passes and quotas will do.  It is not difficult and it is only a responsible thing for the govt to do. I have wasted so much breath talking about this issue while so many Singaporeans are suffering and some people are happily tweedling their thumbs counting their millions and acting innocent.

How much more must Singaporeans suffer from this fate due to govt policies to bring in more foreigners at their expense? Singaporeans mismatched, misfits, foreigners from little villages with funny degrees are better fit and better matched?

Stupidity has no cure. Forsaking the Singaporeans is a crime against Singaporeans.

If no serious and immediate action is taken, if the govt is not going to provide the opportunities for Singaporeans to be suitably employed, Singaporeans will end up without the relevant skills, without the experience to move up the corporate and skills ladder for higher appointments. Singaporeans would become skill less, less experiencede and unemployable with foreigners getting all the on the job training and experience to boot in their CVs.

A good example is the CEO positions. Why give them to foreigners to gain the experience and not to Singaporeans? Soon no Singaporeans would be good enough to be CEOs, even in GLCs.

This is tragedy in the making and Singaporeans would become the dodo birds of the 21st Century, in their own country. This is another kind of ‘Sook Ching’ in a way.

I read somewhere that Lim Swee Say was so emotional in Parliament when talking about the unemployment of Singaporean PMETs. Some were saying that he was shedding crocodile tears. I hope he really felt the pain and suffering of the unemployed or under employed Singaporeans and understood how ‘chek ark’ 折悪is such a policy of giving hundreds of thousands of jobs to foreigners but leaving Singaporeans in the lurch, in despair. I also hope that those MPs and ministers sitting in the Parliament also felt the same and would quickly start to do something to help Singaporeans instead of talking cock, to help the people that voted them into Parliament. They owe it to the voters not to foreigners.

Angkol, yesterday the Chinese newspaper Sin Ming reported that minionster Lim Sui Sai cried in parliament not becos of the unemployed PMETs Leh.. He cried becos he was moved into tears due to a unemployed single mum whom herself got brain tumour & need to feed her 2 kids & her mother during one of Mr Lim MPS, she later found a job as a clinic assistant, LSS was touched by her determination to find jobs to feed the family despite her medical condition (not the majority PMETs tat r unemployed --this unemployed Sinkies group , to the minionster is 'u die ur own bziness ' , not his obligation to help them become rich la..)

The private employers may be selfish and want to save cost, but what about ministries, stats boards, GLCs? These are govt owned and should be made to do National Service, to serve and help Singaporeans.

Their HR must be headed by a Singaporean, not new citizen with less than 10 years as a new citizen. Made them answerable to MOM in their employment policy with MOM dictating that it should be Singaporean first. MOM can without EP, SP and WP to make sure it works for the good of Singaporeans.

So difficult meh?

@RB 9.14am

Unkol, initially yes these GLC & stats board recruited mostly Sinkies but as time goes by most of these Sinkies left their GLC /stats boards, it become hard for them to train new ones, some 'bo bian' but to recruit foreigners to keep cost down, u be surprised there r FTs ( like Pinoy, PRC, Burmese..) working in GLC , once these FTs return to their hm countries they will become Sinkieland's competitors. Some or most Sinkieland private companies HR hv foreigners & they tend to recruit their own kind & its not their obligations to recruit Sinkies first..

No use asking whether this is enough.

As usual, they are just making a token effort to close the stable doors after the horses have bolted.

But as usual, the daft Sinkies, in the majority, will think this is the cure for the sickness, when the patient is already in intensive care. Far from it. This is just wayang at it's best, horned from more than 50 years of extensive experience herding daft sheeps into the pen.

They know the weaknesses, the greediness, the naviety, the kiasism and the easily pacified nature of Singapore sheeps. Those sheeps should be bred for the Muslim festivals. Nothing more, nothing less.

Singaporeans are too pampered to be gainfully employed. I was talking to a HR managers who has conducted many interviews for positions in his organisation. Singaporean applicants would always ask questions on topics like whether there is need to work weekends or overtime, whether there will be automatic annual increment in salary or whether they are required to travel on assignments. On the other hand FTs from other countries never ask " sensible " questions like these. If you are in a situation where you have to hire a Singaporean of a foreign FT, who would you employ?? Now be very honest and imagine it is your own company and you are seeking a person who would work hard, be dependable and show willingness.

I agree with Anon 10.08 who said that 'Garmen will only help Singaporeans when we start voting opposition'. Very true.

This is evident from the changes that came forth from the loss of Aljunied GRC to the opposition. Of course the PAP will deny this vehemently, saying that such changes were already on the cards.

But old timers who have been through the decades under the PAP knows that the PAP never will admit to anything. And the many changes that came about after the loss of Aljunied GRC cannot be co-incidental.

Unfortunately that enlightened momentum has not been sustained, so paying and paying is going to be the norm again. Increases left, right, centre, top and bottom is coming fast and furious.

Just brace for it!

MOM is firstly a misnormal. Previously it was Ministry of Labour. Changed to Ministry of Manpower because some egoistic self-indulgent idiots think that the word 'Manpower' shows they have great power to do what they like. And also bring it in line with the SAF Military organisational structure of Manpower Division, Central Manpower Base, G1, S1 and Manpower Officer. That happens during a time when almost every govt agency wants power, authoriiry, number one. That's why you have LTA, HSA, MDA, Spore Power, One This and One That.
Secondly, at present you have an egoistic, self-centred, self-enriching, self-praise, self-promotion, self-interest person who name has been famously associated with talking cock like singing songs, at the helm of MOM, the 50 firms taken to task out of hundreds of thousand firms, is just a tiny drop of water in the big ocean. So, this must be seen and taken as a political gimmick of a monkey who tries to play politics in the normal human world. Nothing else!

“When I made the decision to join politics in 2006, pay was not a key factor.
Loss of privacy, public scrutiny on myself and my family and loss of personal time were.
The disruption to my career was also an important consideration.
I had some ground to believe that my family would not suffer a drastic change in the standard of living even though I experienced a drop in my income.
So it is with this recent pay cut.
If the balance is tilted further in the future, it will make it harder for any one considering political office."

PAP's Strategy of Governing

PAP has been in power since 1959. Once the Opposition Party, the Barisan Socialist make a big blunder of boycotting elections and let PAP into the Parliament Full House, they can pass any law they wanted.

Once they experienced this heavenly sent gift of easily acquired unfettered power, they perpetuate this strategy for as long as they wanted.

Right from the very beginning, the strategy is three-prong approach:

1. Money. Make sure majority only have sufficient money for their own daily living, so that they cannot become rich. Because human nature is such that once people become rich, they would want to have status, once they have status, they would want to become famous, once they become famous, they would want to become powerful .....

2. Time. Make sure the majority of people do not have to much time to spare, otherwise they will be too free to participate in many activities, especially political activists' activities such as protests, strikes, work-to-rule, sit-ins, demonstrations, organising fund-raising and charitable organisational activities, etc.

3. Freedom. Make sure the majority of the people do not have much freedom regarding freedom of speech, freedom of association, freedom of movement and freedom of assembly.

If you examine into all the policies of the PAP government, you will find, in one way or the other, all or at least one of the above is the main objective of most of their policies.

Always bear the PAP's three-prong approach in mind, whenever one examine into any of the new PAP policies and observe the subsequent actions they take.

The central idea of the three-prong approach is to LIMIT and RESTRICT the capacity and capabilities of the masses from up-rising; in other words, to prevent a mass revolt against PAP's Supreme and Everlasting Power.

Are the various strategies recommended for retail businesses in the recent 2017 CFE report of any use for many (struggling) retail SMEs (or only those [talking {cock} on paper about [fighting] a war)?

Dear Anon 1047 and 1054 pm;

Oh Yes, some big electronic retailers will have to scale down if they are not doing exports.
The Fashion and Non-essential products retailers too shall have to close shops or scale down as well, no other way.

With costs of living rising many times faster than wage and worse more unemployment, Sinkies do not have the Spending Power anymore. Many will be facing money problems and crimes will be climbing affecting the safety and security of living in Sin.

Things are coming to a head and failing to deal with them in time shall result in dire consequences.
As l have said many times,
Sin Rulers are using consumption as a source of growth, hence they have to grow the Population as fast as they could. And to accommodate the Alien Settlers, more woll have to be built to sell to them(alien) to keep the Economy going.
But, when there is no more
space to build in 30 to 40 years time, how?

Many friends are telling me that l am stupid to think and talk about the
Situation and the Future.
Reason cited is that me will not be around for long since l am a senior citizen. They say l am worry for nothing aka 杞人优天 in Chinese.

To some extend l do agree.

In Economics research, one area often covered by the economic fraternity is consumer confidence and consumer spending .......?

There are many good articles written on this subject in economic journals such as the "Journal of Economic Literature" (JEL) and "Journal of Economic Perspectives" (JEP) .......?

To quote from one such article published in 2004 by Professor of Economics Sydney C. Ludvigson of New York University and Faculty Research Fellow of NBER (National Bureau of Economic Research):

Quote

"At least since the work of John Maynard Keynes, economists have pondered the ways in which consumer and investor sentiment - what Keynes (1936, Chapter 12) referred to as "animals spirits" -- might influence the real economy.................. In the New York Times alone, more than 15 articles about consumer confidence and its potential impact on the economy appeared between July 2002 and June 2003. Consumer confidence is often cited by Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan as a key determinant of near-term economic growth (for example, Greenspan, 2002)."

The Madness in the Political Leadership of Singapore - Part 19

Red Marks or Hallmarks of High Quality Debate in Parliament?

Lately, Singapore's self-praising PM in his Facebook post wrote:

By international standards, our Parliament is less dramatic than some others, but the quality of our debate is high.

He indirectly praised himself by saying that the speeches made by several MPs during the Budget Debate were "hallmarks" of the high quality of debate in Parliament.

As he was too shy to praise his own PAP MPs, he made use of three No-power MPs' hypocritical small talks to illustrate his point on high quality debate -

1. Kok Heng Leun's diversion-of-important-water-hike-issue-speech on arts and culture to help bond and build resilience in society,

2. Randolph Tan's self-praising close tracking of Singapore's economic restructuring efforts, and

3. Ganesh Rajaram's wasting-parliament's-time by telling his mother self-praising grandmother story about how dignified she was in the face of prejudice.

He said, "These three NMPs exemplify the purpose of the Nominated MP scheme. They have brought their expertise and experience to bear, and enriched the public discourse."

He also pat Low Thia Kiang on the back by praising the Workers' Party MPs for cooperating with the PAP in letting down their voters, thus saying:

"Some opposition MPs made good speeches too. MP Low Thia Khiang, leader of the Workers' Party, had set out succinctly how the strategic landscape is changing, and how this challenges our foreign policy..... This is how parliamentary democracy is supposed to work. Sometimes we fall short of this ideal, but in the case of these four speeches, we have not done badly."

I am so embarrassed that I really don't know what to say about this side-stepping of the main issues at hand at a time of uncertainty ahead, followed by a callous, greedy, irresponsible, insensitive, unreasonable and totally absurd decision to raise water price by a hefty 30% all of a sudden, plus introduction of new taxes and increase of other taxes, especially so when Singapore's economy is not doing well and is likely to fall further.

All I can think of is his own sister calling him "dishonorable son" and he has not brought her to court to prove that she was wrong.

What do you think? Should give him red marks or hallmarks?

Given recent news in about several NEW and HEFTY tax increases being implemented over the next 3 months to 2 years, oppo MPs Miss Sylvia Lim and Party Chief Mr Low Thia Khiang raised some good questions (though more could have been done)?

Going forward (for the economy), the immediate impact (and likely "first casualties") could be the retail sector?

With the impending tax increases coming one after another within the next 3 months to 2 years, consumer confidence is likely to take a (hard) hit.

This is unlikely a helping hand for the retail and F&B sectors as many are already reeling from subdue consumer spending in the past few years?

In the above cited article written by Professor of Economics Sydney C. Ludvigson in 2004, some of the conclusions in the research findings are worth examining:

Quote

"Consumer Confidence and Precautionary Saving

If higher consumer confidence levels capture reduced uncertainty about the future and therefore diminished the precautionary motive for saving, then higher consumer confidence should be associated with higher level of consumption today, relative to tommorow."

Unquote


If this is the case, isn't it true in reverse?

Going forward, is it not possible that besides not opening up their wallets as often, consumers likely would also undertake "more precautionary savings"?

This is where it could "prove DEADLY" for the retail sector?

As "proven beyond doubt" in the theory of "Paradox of Thrift", in the near and mid term, both national output and final saving would be likely "negatively impacted"?

two anehs went into sing shiong to buy beer at 11pm,
sales girl told them no sale of liquor after 1030 by law. the duo started hurling abusive language 'chao jee bai' , even wanted to attack the petrified girl.
i was going to call police when their gang pull them away, while still abusing the staff and onlookers .

on the same morning i witnessed an aneh abusing a sinkie in a bus, ugly scene like these are getting more common these days,
remember the serangoon riots ?

as if sg has not enough barbarians, still want to import 500000 more from abroad.
no wonder they'r getting lu lai lu guai lan !

As survivals in this sick Sin Society run by sick and avaricious Rulers, more Sinkies shall become
emotionally and mentally disturbed.
lt is plain to most that things from structural to human behaviours are breaking down and falling apart almost everyday and everywhere. lt is not wrong to say Sin is in haywire.

Cant help having fear that the Future is very dark for the Younger Generations of Native Sinkies.

Ha ha ha

Same same pinoy lah ......

At a cashier counter this pinoy guy gave the SINKIE middle-aged lady some vouchers and she was verifying sthg but this pinoy guy just out of the blue shouted loudly and very rudely:

"You COLOUR BLIND arh ......?"

The cashier was STUNNED and looked like had a very bad fright, just like many other customers standing near the cashier counter queue.

But this pinoy really acted like a gangster from his body language and the sinkie lady could be seen "trembling" a bit and face turned colour from the sudden verbal intimidation and abuse ......?

Mb many foreigners including this pinoy guy running out of $$$ and feeling very stressed by high COL in this most expensive peesai sin city in the whole world but the super rude abusive sudden shouting at the cashier is definitely uncalled for and more like "VENTING anger" and "taking out" at those weaker and can be "eziLEE" bullied members in sinkieland society ......

From the way this pinoy guy blatantly did it, properly that was not the first time ......?

More (trouble) to come down the road ......?

Likely this may not be an isolated incident?

Could be (many) more (such similar incidents) occurring across the sin city island?

Good morning Angkor Patrait,

Can you share (in msn) some of the incidents you witnessed (previously)?

This is after all "MySingkielandNews" site .....

Let's share "some news" (in msn) seen and witnessed across the sin city island (but not reported in the ["sterilised"] msm?

Not scare that Sin will be in deep trouble?
lndeed, the Sin Rulers seem not to care or worry much and can afford to make livelihood challenging for the People.

lt is true and a fact that Sinkies are daft and kiasi, such that they will bear with whatever exploitation and even allow themselves to be bullied by their Rulers who exercise their power with impunity.

Being Ah Q myself, l do tell myself that l am lucky to be an oldie. Hence, l shall NOT have to face living hell in Sin for too long.

Good Luck Folks.

//lt is true and a fact that Sinkies are daft and kiasi, such that they will bear with whatever exploitation and even allow themselves to be bullied by their Rulers who exercise their power with impunity.//


Mee recalled (if not incorrectly) in the late 1970s a meeting between the paramount leaders of an Asian sleeping BIG DRAGON and a barren rock and the essence of that part of the conversation was sthg like this:

//The Chinese culture ...... or rather people ..... oops ...... or rather ancient Chinese had immense and unbelievably tremendous threshold for sufferings and hardships ......?//

Unless they got nothing else to eat, the //ancient Chinese will still not rise against their supreme rulers (aka Dragon Emperors aka Sons of God) if they still can subsist on tree barks and roots ......?//

Many Sinkies ancestors are from Mainland?

Dun doubt the (extent of) hardships and sufferings sinkies can bear (or willing to bear) to be "with the LEEders, for the LEEders, and for (the LEEders') Sinkieland)?

Hey patriot, if you shift your focus and "world view" (interpretation, perspective, weltanschauung etc. ) you'll get the meaning of 危机 (weiji).

❨1❩ "Creative destruction"---if the stuff is breaking down, then probably the time has come where they are no more relevant, effective or even useful. Perhaps they're hanging around and just getting in the way.

Therefore, "new things" are needed. Will they be better? Who knows. Try lah...if succeed, then keep. If chow kah, throw away. Make sense?

Our species and minds did not evolve for rapid change. Whilst we humans are an adaptable species, we adapt quite well if the change is slow, steady and at a rate we can more or less "predict" what is coming next.

However, that is not our world now. Change is rapid and DESTRUCTION is swift. Implementation of the "new" happens so fast it's hard to keep up or even understand WTF is going on.

However, creative destruction comes out of nature itself. That's how evolution progresses. The very basis of the formation of elements like precious metals come from destruction. When stars go "supernova" they massively explode, and in the process "create" elements like gold, uranium, platinum etc.

Destruction is absolutely necessary. And I am a HUGE FAN of destruction. Matilah Singapura! 🤡 (can you imagine what comes after? Better than rebirth...A NEW Singapore? )
=====

❨2❩ You'll find that some of the best "creative destroyers" are YOUNG people. Very smart young people, who can see better ways of doing stuff, and so they "create" new things, and the old, less effective ways die out.

Email killed snail mail. Online news killed newspapers. A.I. writing algorithms are replacing human journalists. HFT/ algo trading are quickly making traders obsolete, YouTube will kill TV, WhatsApp is killing Telcos revenue from overseas calls, Uber has hammered the taxi industry, Air BnB is forcing hotels to cut prices, as are Budget Airlines. Global labour force is killing off local labour wage rates and security.

Facebook and other social media platforms are out-performing mainstream media in shaping public opinion. DJ Trump is a Twitter EXPERT. It is doubtful his campaign would have been as effective if not for Twitter, as the whole media HATED (and continues to hate) him

Uber's creator is young. Zuckerberg was a fresh-faced 22 yr old when Facebook was born. Bill Gates (our generation) was in early 20's when Microsoft was created.

⦿ Guys who've been on my radar for sometime are Cody Wilson of Defense Distributed, and Amir Taaki of DarkMarket, which evolved to OpenBazzar. They are both young guys.

Cody is famous for his 3D printed gun, and the authorities all over the world are shitting. Download digital file from internet, run on computer, plug 3D printer in computer...and run. After a few hours, you have parts to build a GUN. Present projects are 3D printed AR15 and 1911 Colt 45---pretty serious hardware.

Cody has "destroyed" the system of govt-controlled/ prohibited GUN OWNERSHIP. Now anyone can have guns---as many as they like. Cost of manufacture: under $100 per weapon 😂😂

Amir Taaki is the father of OpenBazzar---100% anonymous, 100% absolutely FREE MARKET where anything goes.

Check then out for yourself.

I think the young people are going to be more than OK. They are going to be living in an awesome world, where they can do whatever the fuck they like, and govts. will have NO POWER to stop them. 🤡

Matilah Singapura;

Thank You my Idol.

Me agrees with You that
the Youngs are indeed the
more revolutionary ones.
However, youth in Sin are definitely a great disappointment as far as politic is concerned. Majority or most could not be bothered. They are
only interested in themselves. ln many ways,
they are educated and inculcated to be such.
Many observed and said that the Youngs are indoctrinated by Pappy Culture the Moment they are send to PAP Kindergartens.
l would also say that the Youngs being born to PAP brainwashed parents and grandpaŕents, naturally are not having much brain
of their own.

Young Sinkies are liked factory produced canned products. They are contained, preserved and shaped and canned by tge Manufacturer.
Do not harbour much hope
about their ability to change things.
Maybe, the Best they do is to make Sin their hotel and enjoy Sin in rocking style.

Always enjoy Your Rejoinder. Thank You!
