We need to relook our open door policies before anything else

Recently, the government released a catchy video entitled “A Royal Conundrum”. The video depicted how a cook in the royal family was given the chance to tap on the “adapt and grow” programme to increase her worth.

Although it seems to be a clever initiative by the government is actually just a gimmick. Ultimately, the “Adapt and Grow” programmes itself is an excellent effort to get our labour force to upskill or upgrade and open doors to new opportunities.

But it seems counterproductive to open our employment doors to foreigners without restraint. Talent from neighbouring countries where its currencies are weaker allow these foreigners to accept lower salaries and hence depress our wages.

WIth inflation each year and stagnation of wages due to the influx of cheap labour at every level of the corporate world, what is the real benefit of upgrading and upskilling?

How many of our citizens are under-employed? The diploma and degree holders working as grab-drivers, security officers, cleaners and part-time servers.

We first need a reform on our open-door policies to attract foreign talent so that it protects local first before anything else.

  • Up and Up to low pay :(:

    The reality is upgrading and upskilling to low pay. Or even up and up to no job.

    Voters, wake up. Stop believing those people who ask you to watch your lunch. They are the ones who stole your lunch, and are stealing your lunch.

    Wake up, please, before you starve to near death, and become maids in HK or Malaysia.

  • Vote them out.:

    At all times, ballot boxes must be visible. No such thing as putting in the boot or compartment as quick change of hands may be hiding inside.

    Ballot box once out of sight, means soiled.

    During transport, ballot box must be sling to the hands.

  • Bluff exposed !!!:

    They have been telling us that foreigners help create jobs for local Singaporeans. Now the truth is out – this is absolute rubbish. Foreigners actually STEAL the jobs of our PMETs !!! One has to be blind not to notice increasing numbers of local PMETs going jobless, or resorting to driving GRAB cars, or doing food delivery to earn pittance. Time to demand for accountability from this incompetent government !!! GE is coming, its the time give this government its report card – Its a FAIL !

  • S$1.5m condo:

    in pap parlance S$600k pa is peanuts and S$1m pa is mediocre.

    only the S$1.5m condo type, fake postgraduate diploma from fake computer school and EXECUTIVE mbs Hull.

    only problem is, the S$1.5m condo type without basic degree can POSTGRADUATE diploma? unless england has changed, POSTGRADUATE means after basic degree?

    in the end, pap is at fault. being the lying type, gladly welcome fake degree fake postgraduate diploma type into kampung. worse, can become citizen some more. truly WTF.

    In all of history is there a case where the emperor apologised to the slave-labourer for the wealth stolen? Was there any change just becasue people asked him to? Not even in America.

  • in their respective sectors:

    //The video depicted how a cook in the royal family was given the chance to tap on the “adapt and grow” programme to increase her worth.//

    aiyoh ? all this “adapt and grow” indoctrination programme is to parry the blame onto the daft sinkies that if they cannot hold on to a job, it is their problem of failing to “adapt and grow” lar ?

    what adapt and grow when you still have 6.9m or 10m open-leg policy to hinder the growth and adaptation ? most probably, daft sinkies need to learn fast on how to “adapt and grow” to the chat-ba-lang culture of 6.9m or 10m open-leg policy lar ?

    //Ultimately, the “Adapt and Grow” programmes itself is an excellent effort to get our labour force to upskill or upgrade and open doors to new opportunities.//

    wow pian huey ? real or not ? if experienced PMETs (many years of experience in their respective sectors ok) can get replaced in various sectors by open-leg policy ? do the white idiots mean that newbies (could be seniors just by going for some wayang courses) can get better chance in another new role and perhaps in a totally new sector ? maybe a few out of hundreds (if not thousands) will have better luck for the white idiots to make noisy advertisement for their own propaganda lor ?

  • PAP signed CECA:

    If NUS/NTU/Poly students cannot compete with a street-alley schools from third world countries, what good is the boasting that you graduate from a top-tier university? The professors should be asking their students, “Why are you in class? You should be at Hong LIm Park.”

    university rankings can be gamed. as long as there is a lot of sheep CPF money to throw at the game, nus ntu smu rankings can even surpass the ivies.

    but reality is many nus ntu smu graduates are underemployed or jobless when ceca ah neh fake diploma is good or better.

    The power-hungry but incompetent MIWs knew that true-blue singaporeans are very unhappy with them for what is happening in singapore, so they are slowly replacing and displacing the true-blues before being voted out; simple as that.

    The truth was out from Day 1.

    Many sinkies who didn’t feel the pain then thought that it will not affect them.

    The PAP regime emboldened these aliens to make snide remarks on poor sinkies by openly putting the citizens down with fake claims.

    First was xenophobic, then the rubbish throwing, recently was the third world.
    These actions to demonize citizens are simply evil and spiteful.
    Legitimate concerns and discriminations was falsely masked as xenophobia.
    It was proven that the case of rubbish was at a concern attended mainly by foreigners.
    The claim about third world is a place now occupied by a population with 50% aliens.

    PAP’s actions have emboldened foreigners like tax funded “scholar” Sun Xu, HK cyclist road hogger, JP Morgan obnoxious Indian, Anton Casey smelly MRT, just to name a few, to look down on citizens with distain and despise.

    Hardworking sinkies cannot allow such actions and attitudes to continue.
    A change in government is a must.

  • a PG:

    Their “open legs” policy to welcome 3rd world countries’foreign trashes is just a like prostitute making money. They are turning our island into a foreign country. If these 3rd world countries are really talented, y do you think they want to leave their countries ? They are considered as discarded and of no value to their own countries which are the reasons for their leaving. We, the true blue citizens must act b4 it is too late.
