  • You can't hide it forever...:

    Foreign worker levy is rationalized as a deterrent to Singapore employers from hiring foreigners instead of Singaporeans. Now, to my logic that 6 billion dollar free-loader chunk of funds should be spent on providing government aid to citizens in all sorts of manner to recompense them for the jobs they were deprived of because of the foreign worker presence. Anyways, many a Singapore boss has been forced to retire by the unrrasonably excessive demands of MOM levies.
    We have a Papeconomics where both employer and employees are squeezed high and dry: what kind of twisted crony logic is that. Hence today, poor belittled labourers are presented in the glaring global spotlight of economic exploitation. Don’t we sheeples know the filthy-rich Pappy elitism so well?

    When you have got something to hide you do your best to hide it and not draw attention.

    Same for Ho’s salary, cost of building HDB flats and a whole lot more.

    FWL is a big number and should be listed by itself so that the people knows exactly how much revenue comes from the Party’s “open-leg” policy

    Well, we are living in the Crony Communist Clown Circus (aka 4C’s).
    No surprise to me.

    If they can do something like AIM they can do anything.

    Good discovery!

    Foriegn workers are indeed good slaves for SG.

    1. They are strong and do works SGreans do not want to do.
    2. They are cheap to maintain or non-existence in medical cost.
    3. They are so much cheaper than employing a SGrean.
    4. They are more obedient than SGrean.
    5. They eat simple and cheaply.
    6. They can be easily packed into dorms, squeezed many into a tiny space.
    7. They can at anytime quickly be packed and go.
    8. They can be put within security gates and maintained like prisoners, of coz for everyone’s security.
    9. Most importantly, levies can be made out of them, unlike SGrean, the gov still need to pay SGrean ANGBAOs yearly and even need to pay more during GE times.

    They are assets to SG.

    it will be interesting how much these dormitories make a year and then we can understand why pap ministers seem so slow to react to the appalling conditions of these dormitories.

    because the high operators of these dormitories are driving the salaries of the pap ministers as these salaries are pegged to the top earners in Singapore.

    And we, ordinary Singaporeans, are punished by the circuit breakers and the plunging economies of Singapore because of these low standards demonstrated by these operators and the ministers in charge of the c19 task force.

    The FWs accept this as it is still a better deal than what they get at home?

    Why is there no levy and no quota on employment passes?

    Employment pass holders are the ones that are stealing our lunches and causing massive unemployment and underemployment in our young and able PMETs.
