13,000 migrant workers who will not be able to return to work

I am most disappointed, disgusted even, to read about 13,000 migrant workers who will not be able to return to work after they have missed the dateline to undergo their fortnightly C19 Rostered Routine Testing (RRT) last saturday.

13,000 of them is a very large numbers anyway one looks at it. I ask what happened?

Surely it could have been better managed if only we have stronger pap leadership. Were there penalties for the respective employers if their workers fail to show up for RRT? Isn’t the duty of their individual employers to ensure that their migrant workers who are on their payroll fully understand and co-operate with the various government agencies and show up for their RRT, otherwise the employers will be fined and their workers’ work passes will cancelled and they will be sent home etc?

If we want to effectively stay on top of C19 and enable our economy to safety reopens as soon as possible, then we will need to have serious and strong people in charge with the fullest co-operation from everybody but unfortunately, we don’t have that currently. This is not rocket science. This is pure common sense.

For those 13,000 migrant workers who didn’t turn up for their RRT, that must indicate a few things to me.

One, we clearly have weak people in charge of RRT and two, the accompanying punishments for not showing up for both the workers and their respective employers, if any, is a joke.

It is most unfair that the government is taking the easy way out by merely pushing all the faults and blames to the main contractors. I ask if that is not again a clear sign and manifestation of weak and hopeless pap leadership at work, then what is?

Think.

  • Remove Liew Mun Leong:

    If Saw Phaik Hwa can be pressured to resign as MRT CEO the same thing should be done to Liew Mun Leong.

    LML not longer passes the “smell test”. He should save his family more embarrassment by resigning from all his Government-linked post. He already made his millions. He should leave the country an quietly enjoy it. He should take his son with him before he gets in more trouble.

  • NotMyProblem:

    New Zealand’s PM Jacinda Ardern dared to say “unacceptable failure”, do you think our PM dares to say that to the Covid 19 task force?

    PM Ardern did her “little dance” months ago, when Singaporeans could join her in the little dance?

    I reckon, with the extended runway given by the 61%, the task force was given sufficient time for a deserving hibernation.

  • PAPs has lost control:

    bad bosses.
    arent they responsible whether their workers turn up for the test?
    would the workers just turn up for the tests without his employers permission or direction?
    greedy empoyers all received the bailouts from gov but will find every excuse now to let go of workers, like many already done.

  • Mr lim, isn’t it a good thing that 15k FTs are now jobless so that Sinkies can replace them?

    Think of it as a blessing in disguise.

  • Send foreigners home:

    The Government did the right thing. Main contractor needs to punished by not following scheduled testing. The “best way” to do this is not allow their workers to work. Hundreds of millions have been spent (and the spending continues) on migrant workers. Tough action needs to be taken to those who do not fully cooperate to contain the pandemic among migrant workers.

    What is needed is even stronger action from the Government to send foreigners home by cancelling their visa. Singaporeans can take over their job.

  • to reach their own equilibrium:

    //Surely it could have been better managed if only we have stronger pap leadership.//

    aiyoh ? how to really manage when almost half (?) of the population (from open-leg policy ?) are FTs or FT (low wage ??) in nature in a congested place all in close proximity ?? not like 70s or 80s when all the moving parts (fewer) were all quite unified, nowadays you get to see more and more wayang chat-ba-lang standard with more complex moving parts (some interlacing but contradicting) and smart-alec wayang explanation & excuses ???

    could the white monkey idiots be ‘stronger’ if they may have seeded many wayang conditions for things not to be ok (cause and effect as all moving parts will just react accordingly to reach their own equilibrium – be it good or bad outcome) ????
