Jobs growth: 561,800 locals, 611,700 foreigners – 441,508 new PRs, 218,916 new citizens?

In the run-up to the United States midterm elections – one of the most hotly debated achievements of the Trump administration is that “almost 3.9 million new jobs have been created since President Trump was elected“.

This got me thinking – what about jobs growth in Singapore?

According to the Ministry of Manpower’s (MOM) web site – Employment Change was 1,173,500 from 2007 to 2017.

The breakdown is 561,800 locals (citizens and PRs) and 611,700 foreigners.

Since 441,508 new PRs and 218,916 new citizens were granted from 2007 to 2017 – how many of the 561.800 locals’ jobs growth went to Singaporeans?

Since the statistics can be disclosed for including and excluding Foreign Domestic Workers (FDW), and the unemployment statistics into Singaporeans, PRs and foreigners – there is absolutely no reason why the data cannot be broken down for the employment growth to Singaporeans, PRs and foreigners?

After all, isn’t this arguably, in the public interest, and in line with the online falsehoods’ committee’s recommendation that the Government should give the reasons for decisions not to disclose information to the public, and to gain the trust of the public?

    Long time ago, blue collars unwanted jobs were given away.

    Now, with the mass influx, Singaporeans white collars jobs are taken away with the lie that FTs create more jobs for Singaporeans.

    Vote PAPi to lose your PRIDE.
    Vote PAPi to lose your Jobs.
    Vote PAPi for GST to rise again.

    PAPi is all the bad news.

    I take a rough estimate of local $G population this way.

    2018 population approx 5.9 million.
    Youth 66 years 0.5 million (mostly $G)

    Taking 1985 as the base year
    2.7 million citizens with (assumed) non-$G nationals at 10%,
    $G citizen approx 2.5 million (in 1985)

    Between 1985 – 2018, (birth – death) average = 9 per 1000 population or 25 000 per year x 32 years = 800 000 $G born increase

    In 2018 this means total of 3.3 million $G locals (2.5 + .8) but youth + aged ~ 2.0 million.

    Government employs mostly $G ~ 0.15 million

    The local private sector available $G citizen adults of 1.15 million (3.3 – 2.0 – .15) vs 2.60 million FT (5.9 – 3.3) in terms of work

    So basically we are looking at 1 $G : 2.2 FT in terms of work opportunity in the private sector – person for person.

    The ratio of younger $G to FT is much lower from a declining birth rate.

  • opposition dude:

    Wasn’t there some news report last year or something that said local job creation was only 100? I sort of remember reading somewhere that locals job creation is at a mere 20%.

    If this is true then whenever job creation numbers are given for residents we can assume only 20% and less jobs were created for us nia.
