The big topic in Singapore must be the way that ministers brush aside or simply find excuses for the meaningless influx of "foreign talents". I appreciate foreign workers because Singaporeans are not willing to slog under the hot sun for such a small sum of money. Not too many will be willing to work in coffeeshops.
Unfortunately there are many posts which can be and should be filled by locals but have been filled up by so called FTs as of late. Basically if you are not of middle to senior management grade then you will find it tough to fight against these foreign talents. They ask for less, work for more. And even if you paid thousands of dollars for a part-time Australian degree, you won't be better than them. Why? Because the SinGov gives out scholarships for Asean (less Singapore) students and these cream of the crop come to Singapore. Why are we pursuing these people? I have nothing to say if they are really the cream of everything but this is a scholarship battle which Singaporeans are not even eligible for.
I think this whole episode with the said minister coming out and saying his response was taken out of context and blah blah blah... And you know what? I don't really care what is said. I'm more concerned about what is done. In or out of context, things have been said and it's not helping their cause for the next General Elections. I forecast a 10% opposition win in the next GE. And a big stock market jolt~
Sometimes I find the way of the modern world digusting and retarded. UK paying millions and billions to be part of EU, have foreign immigrants leeching their labour system and housing refugees in million-pound mansions while their own citizens cannot afford to have a holiday in their life...
So back to the topic... so what is worth defending for in the Little Red Dot? Food, family, friends ... in that sequence~ LOL~ And of course little funny things like Singlish and PCK~
