Shameful Beyond Words!

The State Media decided to have a talk shop last Friday and the topic was the minimum wage.

The usual arguments of the PAP was repeated by establishment figures Lim Boon Heng and Zainal Sapari. Absolutely nothing new. The usual fake arguments, as Prof Tommy Koh put it were advanced by the establishment to justify why a minimum wage should not be introduced and we should make do with the PAP’s poor substitute, pompously named the Progressive Wage Model.

As Prof Koh rightly pointed out, the PWM has not lifted Low income workers out of poverty. Contrast that with HK where the introduction of a minimum wage lifted 140 000 Hong Kongners out of poverty.

As for the nonsense that a minimum wage will erode competitiveness and lead to job losses, Prof Koh’s rebuttal was concise and pointed. The introduction of the minimum wage in HK, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan did not lead to unemployment or illegal employment. Neither did the introduction of the 5 day week erode our competitiveness when it was introduced, contrary to what critics had claimed would happen.

My friends, you will agree with me that when you realise the following shameful facts about what PAP economic policies have created in Singapore, you too will demand, like Peoples Voice does, for a minimum wage so that together we can Make Singapore Our Home!

1. According to the UN, Singapore is the 2nd most unequal society in the World. Prof Koh says he is embarrassed by this. I am ashamed that our Nation has this dubious distinction!

2. 587,000 workers in Singapore earn $ 2000 or less per month.

3. 140,000 households live in absolute poverty and can not afford the basic necessities in life. That must mean more than 500,000 Singaporeans by my estimate live in absolute poverty, in a country where the number of foreigners is already more than half our population.

But to Josephine Teo, she will consider this inequality a sign of the Singapore success. We in Peoples Voice, on the other hand, believe in, and will work for a fairer and more equal society!

    Right Tean,you are talking sense but will the $ensele$$ listen?

    Beyond a MIN WAGE A CAPPING FOR ALREADY OVERPAID UNDERPERFORMING PPL like our ministers,must also be considered or the INEQUALITY will not close its WIDE GAP n may even widen such GAP$ even as so-called MIN WAGE FOR SHAMEFULLY LOW WAGE WORKERS are cursorily put into place?

    NOTHING totally wrong with the PAP…the founding generation did their service with Gusto Pride and Dedication…After a Bastard sieze POWER and started his team of Kaki Lan and running dogs including an IDIOTIC son even his siblings denounce what is left is a shell of the Founding Generation

    Prof.Koh was from that Fajar * Founding Generation but was tied down when sent away as a threat to LKY for donkey years returning BEHOLDEN in a WAY!!!

    Today, long after his overseas stint and witnessing 1st hand the EVILs of the Lee Dynasty is it too little too late????

    as for Boon Hen the Hypocritical Christian who EMBRACED the SLAUGHTER of 1,000,000 million unborn through LEEgal Abortion in case a Breed of IDIOTS were to be Procreated by lowly educated to accomodate the supposedly FTs now flourishing in our society…go down on your KNEES and beg for forgiveness during CONFESSION this Christmas and pray for the souls of the UNBORN for materially receiving gratitude from an evil man like the 30 pieces of Silver judas took to Betray Jesus

    Recently there have been a spate of food poisoning breakouts.
    This is to be expected as more and more FTs have been replacing sgs in F&B as food-handlers,waiters,etc.

    I dare say even foreign maids trained by strict sg employers are MORE HYGIENIC than all these *S* pass-holders employed by F&B outlets and even BIG NAME HOTEL$?!

    Many foid-courts also employ FTs as cooks,etc and i observe that their hygiene practices are horrible!

    The NEA GRADING OF A,B,C is oure nonsense as these stalls just need to observe hygiene near to GRADING time?
    What about the REST OF THE YEAR?

    THINK OUR GOVT N UTS AGENCIES ARE LAX N THATS EHY THERE ARE SO MANY LAPSES in all aspects of lufe hete.

    What is not “shameful” that they “do not do” these days ???

    Of course, many today don’t know why there was this “airspace” story happening all of the sudden ???

    Why spend $80 million to “refurbished” a simple airport , once used by C130 Hercules but now,..use by Private jets and those “high fliers”?

    Will those using this airport going to have to pay alot more ?? to “recover” the investment ?

    Why was there :documents” being use to “show” that there were “evidence” of discussion of exchange of Letters a year ago which were left “unanswered” till now ???

    Well,….you will have to ownself “piece together” the following “events”that were “happening around that time”

    a) Malaysia was having their Elections.

    b) Against all odds,…Dr M and his opposition won !

    c) Who actually is major shareholder of this airline called Firefly ?

    ( Rumour has it that it has something to do with Botak’s wife )

    It seems that firefly which uses “turbo prop” planes will be the only current low cost airline that was “destined” to “enjoy” the $80 million spanking airport together with those Rich Private jet operators and owners.

    Ghee,…how “special” and “lucky” was firefly…but “unfortunately” it did not get approval from their own Malaysian Government .

    So,…( if rumour was true ),…then Botak’s wife was “not so lucky” towards the end,…though they did get the “blessings” from our own… “You know who” ???

    At the end of the day,…the HSR …this airspace…this Firefly..all seems to be “link” to Botak and his “buddy “.

  • Minimum wage = regime change:

    How is minimum wage determined? One must first know the cost of living. Isn’t this problem for PAP? What if the cost of living is higher than what many, if not, most, Singaporeans earn, i.e., massive underemployment. This could result in regime change.

  • now who gets assimilated ?:

    //Recently there have been a spate of food poisoning breakouts.

    now who gets assimilated ? getting worst ? FTs (coming from all chat-ba-lang culture) are ‘overwhelming’ (slowly in number and their way of lives / behaviors) daft sinkies (many who tend to keep their golden mouths shut, mind your own business until FTs ‘mind’ daft sinkies’ businesses in their behavior lor).

    FTs are more so-called ‘street smart’ (more ‘flexible’) in the sense that daft sinkies are conditioned in a structured environment – moving like robots with mind that can be tuned left, right, top & bottom so easily by the white idiots. i once heard from someone who read from a foreign website on FTs discussing among themselves saying that daft sinkies’ common 口头语 is 不可以.

    ============================================================================

    hi Another0

    what you say is true,very true!

    there were many times i was in public toilets when i observed that some FT-cooks/food-handlers DID NOT WASH THEIR HANDS after they pee or even after they poo.

    imagine their dirty hands touching your foods.

    i dont blame the operators,i place the MAIN BLAME ON THE GOVT FOR ITS RECKLESS FT POLICY AND ITS AGENIES LIKE NEA FAILING IN DUE DILIGENCE as you mentioned above.

    sgs should boycott all these malpractising food retailers WHOSE FT-WORKERS are bochup about the hygiene of foods they serve to us.

    if lee ah long thinks his FTs are doing a great job,why not he set an example by going to EAT AT FOOD-COURTS MORE REGULARLY himself???

    all these incidenst and others POINT TO THE NONCHALANCE OF OUR TOP-PAID MINISTERS.PERM SECS AND SENIOR CIVIL SERVANTS who just wanna to collect more money so they can have HIGH KPI(BUDGET SURPLUSES) and get big fat bonuses to go for GOURMET COOKing HOLIDAY$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$??????????????????????????????

    FARK YOU VERY MUCH,LEE AH LONG!

    //there were many times i was in public toilets when i observed that some FT-cooks/food-handlers DID NOT WASH THEIR HANDS after they pee or even after they poo.//

    aiyoh. the white idiots don’t much care lar ? besides, at their aristocratic level, everything will be wiped / paved clean or nicely for them to stroll in lar.

    how much do they really know (or much care) that the chat-ba-lang social behaviors / tension that average daft sinkies have to face at ground level. aiyoh. put it ‘bluntly’, already ‘lost’ control. perhaps, it has reached ‘critical point’ that a lot of the past white idiotic decisions are now translating into increasing numbers of these once-in-50-years happenings (albeit negative ones).

    But our great leader Lee Ah Long believes FTs create jobs for Singaporeans. Those who still vote them are digging their own graves.
