Manpower Minister Josephine Teo should explain how this happened

Very very disappointed with how the outbreak in the dormitories is allowed to happen.

Josephine Teo, as Manpower Minister, should explain how this happened.

I believe this is just the tip of the iceberg to come.

“A “significant number” of the new cases are linked to existing clusters involving two workers’ dormitories, S11 Dormitory @ Punggol and Westlite Toh Guan, said the COVID-19 multi-ministry task force in a press conference.

“S11 Dormitory @ Punggol has 22 new cases and Westlite Toh Guan has 10 new cases.”

Each of the 2 dorms has about 10,000 workers each. How was this not a priority for the authorities?

    It should not have happen,but it did we are sorry and let’s move on. This will the reply from Josephine Teo and she will crawl back Into her small space to have sex.
    Her attention and that of her boss and the whole PAP machinery is now focused on how to call for an epidemic GE. Our lives are cheap for them this would not have happened if one of their own kind was involved. Josephine thank your lucky star that you are not answering to OLD FART LKY your head will be on the chopping block by now.You and the 80 over percent of PAP ministers are protected by the DISHONOURABLE SON.

  • SG Boleh:

    What is the reason for compensating employers with $100 a day for every employee that is quarantined or hospitalized for Covid-19? It’s $1,400 over 14 days and multiply that by the number of cases, can add up to quite a lot of money. It is enough that the state should be taking care of their hospitalization and treatment without the employers having to foot the bill. The welfare of foreign workers should rightly be borne by employers or agents who brought them into the country, not by tax-payers. Businesses should protect themselves with insurance to cover losses resultant from sickness, hospitalisation and death of their employees. The govt is not an insurance company for private businesses. There are other measures the govt can take to help private businesses tide over this period.

    In such pandemic, this is what u get when govt MOM practice open leg policy to open gates wide to welcome large influx of foreign workers, into this tiny island.
    This island is dense with large no. of diverse foreign workers

    There’ll exponential increase in the no. of foreign worker infections.
    Best of all, tax payers money are used to pay for all their logistics, treatment, etc…

    I dont entirely blame those foreign workers, I blame this govt.
    U want to earn millions anually, U want to be highest paid govt official in the world, then U better perform much much better in this crisis. U arent paid peanuts!!

    This consequence from pappy open leg policy will come back to haunt Sinkapore again and again.

    A karma warning to our self serving and greedy miws.

    While the current crisis may be eventually resolved, it’s a precursor to possible future pandemics or social upheavals which may occur at an even more devastating scale and paralyze the country to stone ages.

    Look at the BIG Picture,

    The China has played the world double time over, but our gahmen still wants to believe to CHO aka ‘WHO’ and continue to quote them. The entire world is blaming China for providing fake data, intentionally misleading information and sending sub standard medical equipment. Yet, our gahmen continue to kow tow to their Chinese Bosses, to supressed cheap labour and allow below par sanitization and comfort for cheap labour dormitories, where recently a case about our foreign Bus drivers and yet did not learnt from it.

    This country will be undeniable heading to the dump faster than any Singaporeans will even notice, if we allow this gahmen to continue to run our future.

    The Elephants in the Dorms were not spotted.
    The most expensive Cabinet in the Universe did not the see the elephants right in front of their eyes. Eyes were focussed on Pandemic GE.
    If a family member tested positive the whole family is quarantined.
    The cruise ships debacles teaches us the danger of putting too many humans close together.
    Common toilets for 10,000 is a timebomb.
    Xia Suay Kee Chiu claim they can see 2 steps ahead; obviously not.

  • Crony:

    Can someone please do research on all these Dormitory Companies ?

    I think most of the companies are owned by people who are affiliated to PAP and PA is some ways, basically crony companies.

    These companies fund a lot of activities in CC and RC in the form of hampers, sponsor free food and Ang Pows.

    Looks like NEA has been very lenient to these companies and CNA has never reported the dire living conditions these foreigner workers have been housed in cramp rooms.

    Now the biggest cluster is going to be these dormitories and comes under the direct purview of Josephine Teo, who propagates “activities” in a small space.

    PAP is exposed, with another roadbook against the election.

    Now if you are an employer hiring many of these foreign workers and your business is slow, you might wish that more of your workers are quarantined so that you can get free-money. In good times, businesses keep their profits; in bad times tax-payers compensate their losses?? Is this how crony capitalism works?

    Don’t tell me MOM isn’t aware of the cluster at the dormitories housing thousands of FTs and failing to check to ensure that the people staying there are screened in order to prevent an outbreak.This MOM failed and now so many got infected and thus increasing our resources to cater to them.Everyday ministers talk and talk of measures taken to curb the outbreak here and there but forgot the dormitories housing large numbers of workers.Now MOM will come out and say that they are monitoring the situation there and put a few staff there and the main stream media will print a few photos to say MOM is taking action.Drawing a high salary and not doing a good job is not the best we expect from the ministers

  • Use Taxpayer $ Look After FT?:

    Why is Heng Swee Kiat using Taxpayer Money to look after the welfare of the foreign Workers ?

    Should the employers use their own money ? No money than close shop as this is a risk the business men should be taking.

    When the business men are making money , they spend on buying Condos, Meercedes Cars etc,When losing money, they threatened the govt to retrench workers ubless the gove baikl them our with Taxpayer money. WTF.

    The govt should not be using the Unity, Resiliance etc packages to help these companies. These money should be used to help those unemployed and retrenched Singaporean workers.

    VOTE the PAP OUT in the coming GE.

  • Why So Many Self Employed?:

    Why are there so many self employed people in Singapore ?

    These people were previously educated PMETS who have been replaced by the cheaper foreigners. And you can see these FT on TV frequently.

    These self employed people have no choice but to be a Private Hire Car driver, or Food Delivery Man, or Property and Insurance Salesmen etc.

    All the good jobs have been taken by the cheaper foreigners from India, Philippines, Malaysia, China etc..

    Is this good for Singaporeans ? No

    So come this election, VOTE THE FARKING PAP OUT.

    Reuters: Migrant workers fear massive Singapore dormitory lockdown is coronavirus time bomb

    “Migrant workers living in vast Singapore dormitories cut off from the outside world due to the coronavirus outbreak fear their cramped and squalid quarters are fast becoming a hotbed for infection.

    Singapore on Sunday said it had quarantined nearly 20,000 workers in two dormitories, made up of mainly Bangladeshi and other South Asian manual workers, after they were linked to at least 90 infections.”

    The right thing for MOM is to do a Covid test for all & make sure the place is not so crammed to practise safe distancing!
