Local PMET unhappy with $5500 offered to Indian service delivery manager

Gilbert,

I was reading your website about how a Indian national was offered $5500 for being a service manager. I am extremely angry that such things are allowed to take place at the detriment of Singaporeans. For the record, the median income of locals is only about $3850 which means that this guy is earning almost 40% more than Singaporeans.

Now, the PAP has told us time and time again that we need foreigners to do the jobs which locals cannot do. In the backdrop of ever increasing retrenchments of local Singaporeans, are we certain this is the case? If we were to look at some online forums, one foreign talent has even admitted that his hiring manager was going to bypass the fair consideration framework by posting the job for 14 days.

Singapore has one of the highest percentage of immigrants when compared to the rest of the developed world yet we are not given any protection. Locals have weak labour laws which do not allow them protection against massive influx while elderly are left to collect cardboard and clean hawker tables. If we look at countries such as Australia, then there is a point system which I am sure you are aware of.

In fact, I had a Vietnamese classmate who was given an ASEAN scholarship when many people are fighting to get into a local university. Later on, he went to a “Big 4″ public accounting firm which he is doing reasonably well. Is the PAP going to bullshit again to say that no locals want to go to a local university and get a prestigious job after graduation? No matter how I see this, it is a clear case of PAP backstabbing our youth.

The modern PAP is no longer the same as LKY’s generation: They have offended china in a diplomatic faux pas and have no solution to our seized $100 million APVs. And even if such issue do not affect the average man on the street, I hope that Singaporeans can wake up and realise the detrimental effects of PAP’s policies as the economy slows down.

    You are fighting a ‘lost course’. Singaporeans are never going to learn their lesson. 50 years of indoctrination has incapacitated our ability to think.

    It will take another 50 years for most of us to wake up. By then, Singapore will be gone. I don’t see much potential for us, unless we send our kids to an overseas country and get them out of here.

    Please wake up.The country is no longer yours.

    You seem to think employers are favouring foreigners? My dear, the employer is free to pick whoever they wish – it is their business, not yours and not the government’s — and here you’re offended that they picked someone specifically of a given race?

    Please, stop your crying and indignation… and compete. No one, especially a privately owned business, deserves you a favour because of your nationality. What you’re venting about is a competitive market place for labour.

    Singapore is a vibrant and wealthy cosmopolitan country because it welcomes businesses and people of many nationalities to work here with considerable freedom. You too benefit from these positive side effects.

    that is why i have emigrated a decade ago. Singapore as a whole is a lost cause and i won’t prolong my suffering of social and economic injustice that had been perpetrated by PAP.

    Good choice John Tan. Your children can come back here as FT to replace the locals. By that time the locals will be the children of the current FT. Revenge is sweet.
