Josephine Teo Must Take A Bow, Say Sorry And Resign

When more than 95% of a Nation’s Covid-19 cases uncovered so far are linked to foreign workers living in dormitories, is there anything more to say than that the Minister of Manpower must resign?

We are not talking about a few hundred foreign workers or even a few thousand of them being infected. We are talking about well over 22 000 who have been infected so far! And there are many more to come!

I dare say that in any other democracy, Josephine Teo would have been sacked a long time ago by the Prime Minister. But in Singapore, PAP’s no blame culture means that no Minister has to take any responsibility for their failures.

And in Josephine Teo’s case, it is a monumental failure on a grand scale by any measure. It is difficult to even find words to describe the scale of disaster!

  • 4G salary - 1G performance!:

    This mob of 4G “leaders” want to be paid commercial salaries (top 4 brackets) but they are not judged by commercial standards. In the business world, anyone who performs like Josephine would have been shown the door. Sadly, you don’t dismiss “kah kee nang” (own people) and what can you and I do about it? Even a giant oak tree will collapse one day if the roots continue to rot very slowly but surely. Can you not see it happening when you compare the 4G “leaders” with our founding fathers (2G leaders)? Singaporeans are a bunch of “boh chaps” because they cannot see beyond today.

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    Josephine Teo is at the “wrong place” at the “wrong time”. She inherited the problems of the foreign workers dorms. She should resign but also her predecessor Tan Chuan Jin and his predecessors still in Cabinet – Tharman, Gan Kim Yong, Ng Eng Hen. They are all accountable.

    As such, Mr Wong explained that completing the testing process could take a few weeks, meaning going into next month or July.

    When asked on a estimation of the percentage of workers in dormitories who would have been tested positive for the novel coronavirus at the end of the testing process, Mr Wong stated that the real underlying prevalence rate will only be known once all the tests have been done.

    https://www.onlinecitizenasia.com/2020/05/14/covid-19-testing-all-migrant-workers-living-in-dormitories-could-lead-to-a-big-jump-in-cases/

    BASED ON MY ROUGH CALCULATION, THE POSITIVE CASES MAY BE HIGHER THAN 50,000 FROM 25 PBDs (AV.100K FWs) WHICH ARE GAZETTED AS ISOLATION AREAS!

    JT’S PERFORMANCE IS REALLY JIALAT!

  • HSK TMP GRC JT:

    ALERT!!

    Beware guys, state media is used to yet again sugar coat the mask advisory failure :
    https://youtu.be/csymlxGzZeQ

    Not to worry, here is how they are DEBUNKED :

    It’s Commonsense that when you lack knowledge of the respiratory virus, you be more Kia su and take more precautions. Yes,scientific knowledge is ongoing. But this tells us the more the advisory not to wear masks should Not have been issued. They cannot prove that wearing masks is detrimental. So they are clearly debunked. On the one hand they claim ignorance and on the other hand they claim they are so sure they explicitly insist you do not wear mask for a super infectious Respiratory and not anus virus. So, this news is trying to again sugar coat the failure. The excuse they give is low class and lame. In fact since January it’s already known how infectious it is and countries like TW Korea did not stupidly follow the stupid advisory.

    Politics is so dark and evil. And they make it like they are angels. Wow!

  • JT resign ?:

    JT is expected to violently reject any request to take responsibility for her failure and resign.

    Here are some alternatives if she refuses to resign :

    1. PM Lee takes ultimate accountability and resign from his PM position for appointing JT as the Minister of Manpower, OR

    2. JT’s violent refusal to resign should be classified as her mental breakdown and she needs to be admitted to IMH for 2 weeks of psychotic assessment and evaluation, OR

    3. Engage Minister Khaw to provide hara-kiri lessons in her small space, OR

    4. Issue Corrective Work Order (CWO) to JT to clean Dormitory toilets and wash workers soiled laundry for 2 weeks.

    Does she even understand her job at all? Is she able to grasp the magnitude of the disaster under her watch? She seems hopelessly at a loss. Probably still thinks she deserved to be paid the highest Manpower Minister salary in the world. Maybe Sinkies should even be thankful if they decide to cut her performance bonus by 10%.

    *Reported on TOC Website :Quote -”Have billions in foreign worker levies been used to care for migrant workers?
    “Talk to us about how the foreign worker levies have been spent all these years, and if they will now be spent to alleviate the disastrous conditions in these ‘ticking time bombs’,”
    S.Ling by S.Ling 09/04/2020..

    Dr Stephanie Chok took to her Facebook page on Tuesday (7 April) to question the huge amount in foreign worker levy (FWL) collected by the Government for years that is not mirrored in the “cost” of caring for foreign workers as stated in FWL policy goal.

    Dr Chok said that the Singapore Government has collected tax from the employers for each hired work pass holder which range between $300 and $950 per month.

    According to Minister of Manpower (MOM), as part of the Government’s effort to regulate the number of foreign workers in the country, employers would need to pay foreign worker levy from the day the work permit is issued until the permit is cancelled or expired.

    Dr Chok noted that for each work pass holder in the construction sector, employers need to pay between $300 to $950 per month while work pass holders in the marine sector will cost $300 to $400 per month.

    Not to mention the number of migrant workers quarantined in the isolated dormitories of around 20,000 residents in both S11 Dormitory and Westlite Toh Guan dormitories, she calculated the amount of levy which would have been paid by employers.

    Assuming that employers are paying the lowest possible rate of S$300—and many are not—this already amounts to S$6,000,000 a month, collected by the SG govt. In a year, just from these 20,000 workers, they would be collecting a MINIMUM of

    S$6 million x 12 mths = S$72 million.

    If employers had to pay the highest levy rate of S$950 for just 10% of these workers (2,000 men), that would amount to S$1.9 million a month. Each month.

    She remarked, “So when there’s talk about the ‘costs’ of caring for migrant workers, let’s also acknowledge how much the state has been collecting for years in foreign worker levies (billions upon billions that go into a ‘consolidated fund’).”

    As of June 2019, there are 725,200 migrant workers who are holding work permits. Using Dr Chok’s minimum estimate, this amount comes to $2.6 billion. That’s just migrant workers holding bottom jobs, not including foreign domestic workers, S Passes, and Employment passes.

    MOM does not publicly reveal the amount collected via foreign worker levies. Only when questions are raised in Parliament would they disclose figures for one or two years. Back in 2013, then-Manpower Minister Tan Chuan Jin revealed that the Government collected a total amount of S$2.5 billion for the Financial Year 2011. With the number of migrant workers and increased worker levies, it is probable that the total sum may be $4 billion or more.

    Noting the “obscene amount” that have been collected for tax, Dr Chok said,…

    Response : LHL,Josephine Teo LM no need jail? Shame.

    anyone can verify??

    INDOsia died when Suharto made INDOsia a 10% land. everything that goes on in INDOsia must contribute 10% to Suharto family.

    even though Suharto has passed on INDOsia is unable to get out of the nepotism cronyism corruption traps.

    so also 70% sheep Singapore.

    even though lky has passed on 70% sheep Singapore is still wallowed in the same NCC (nepotism cronyism corruption) mud left behind by lky.

    NCC legalized via pap parleement does not count since a theft is theft however it is dressed up legally.

    what is theft in 70% sheep Singapore? S$100m pa jobs without any accountability to pap clan members which incorporate nepotism cronyism corruption all in the same S$100m pap appointment stroke.
