Jobless 60-year-old PMET unhappy with our national jobs bank

Good day Miss Karen/WDA,

I intend to pop over to Meet ‚ÄďYour- MP session to see Mr Lim Swee Say to share with¬†him my¬†concerns that the jobs published in Jobs Bank is not working in favour for Singaporeans, especially my category¬†-


My kind of job is available and very few Singaporeans are available and yet I am hitting the blank wall, day in day out coming to a year.

Elections are won, Christmas and New Year celebrations are over and I feel something needs to be changed as we cannot allow such procedures to continue.

Past 59 years we kept quiet and suffer in silence and when one reaches 60 years old this year and become senior citizen, one has to speak out for oneself and for the next few generations, for next 50 years.

Can I have the copy of the print out tomorrow morning, which is available in your WDA system to confirm how many companies and times I have logged in my interest, only to be denied an opportunity (to be shared with Mr Lim).

It cannot be that after 44 years of world wide experience starting with 50 cents an hour in naval dockyard, Sembawang Shipyard, foreign talent is allowed to take our place and we become 2nd Class Citizens when we are still fit and sound.

    True, I agreed with you totally. As in my company, also hired so many FTs, more than 60% are FTs from India…they ganged up and retrenched the locals here…

    what can PAP do? I wonder.
