What’s the point of it all?

Click to enlarge

Use taxpayers money to the tune of about $100,000 per foreign student and bond them to work here for 3 years upon graduation?

Who benefits? Obviously the foreign student does, if he finds employment. He saves on school fees and is free to pursue employment here.

But more importantly, businesses now have a bigger pool of trained employees who will help push down the market salary. What’s more, they create competition and insecurity amongst new graduates, keeping everyone on their toes and thereby a more pliant workforce and better profits.

Is taxpayers money being used inappropriately? Of course the G will say that we welcome foreign talents and we embrace openness, blah, blah, blah, but the fact of the matter is, it is a gift for businesses and is another example of how businesses get to privatize profits and socialize cost.

  • Cannot Get Into Local U:

    I have been paying taxes and the PAP Govt is using taxpayer money to fund the education of foreign children into our university. A foreign student I know who is attending the Master/PHD course is given around S$4000 plus per month allowance.

    My son who has completed a Polytechnic Diploma course cannot enter any of the local Universities.

    Is the PAP Government taking care of Singapore Children or Foreign Children ?

    Should we vote for the Traitor PAP Government in the next election ?

  • PAP CLOSE DOWN:

    Oh yah. Those idle China housewives have been boasting how their children got scholarship, now work for govt and bought condo. Blah blah bah.

    And then they gossip, in hushed, self righteous tones about unemployed Singapoeans. With absolute zero sense of irony. Idle housewives gossip about unemployed!

    What could happen to natives could happen to foreigners. So watch out.

  • Tremendous:

    The trade chief said there are 3.5m jobs for 2.5m local villagers. With this kind of surplus jobs, he should have thrown a POFMA at the newspaper, but yet he didn’t.
    So he must be a liar and those who voted for him at TanjongPag are idiots. TanjongPag idiots should answer to the village not just about his performance but integrity too.

  • Halimah Totally USELESS:

    All these foreign students just want to have their cakes and eat it.
    Grants to the tune of hundreds on thousands $$$ are dished out to each of them from public funds and now they KPKB about having to pay back.
    And when they managed to get a job, that Hundreds of thousands $$ are presented to them free !!!

    And the PAPIGS meanwhile kept raising tuition fees for our own locals , citing rising cost ???

    $200-300M are dished out annually, and how many of their jumped their bond and disappeared and the thousands of dollars just goes up in smoke and unrecoverable.

    The stupidity of these PAPIGS are just beyond imagination.

  • Harder Truths:

    The policies in force today were started by the evil dead despot. He wanted an island that would have the bestest and brightest. He did not care where they came from. He always wanted foreigners as they were ‘superior’. He believed that exam-passers were superior (like himself) and only he (or they) were allowed to decide what should be done and how.

    The policy to bring ‘talented’ foreigners here and replace ‘under-performing’ locals is his idea, formally instituted by his successors. As there is always someone more ‘book-smart’ than the locals by numbers alone, they would be the ones to take up all the positions in government, civil service and any important ‘private’ sector positions.

    Similarly, the lower class of people bred locally were not as hardworking or savvy as foreigners. Similarly the lower levels of the society will be left for anyone to struggle to succeed – local or foreigner it does not matter.

    This is the Fantasy Island the old deed depot aspired to. If you look carefully there is no room for local-born citizens anywhere if they do not succeed against the foreigners. The current crop of retards in power have a different agenda – but the method of replacement is the same.

    Societies like $G’s are fabricated by idiotic thinking. They do not last long when under stress. $G will be soon another statistic of why communism and population replacement with third-world mentalities does not work.

  • Reduce Minister Salary NOW:

    Right Now as most people have their salaries reduced or worse lose their jobs and without salaries, our Ministers in their Ivory Tower are still enjoying life without a care for their fellow citizens.

    Its time for the Ministers to reduce their salaries now to win the support of the citizens. LHL please act.

    remember to vote WP or PSP or any party as long as it is not pap.

    tell your son to do the same. after all, a poly diploma in pap island is not different from nothing.

    if you can, tell your relatives to vote WP or PSP or any party as long as it is not pap. unity is strength.

    so true.

    61% is some 11% more than 50% which is a substantial number.

    that is why whenever we hear of folks saying their local born children jobless, we just say, simply, as long as 61% votes pap your children is lucky to be grab driver or foodpanda.

    Do not think things will get better. If you do your numbers there is little hope left for you in a few years, let alone your children in a migrant-infested island.

    It is most likely your son is now a failure by $G standards. No matter what he does he will be replaced and end up jobless before he is 40. You can forget about grand-kids or him supporting you in your old age.

    His best bet is to go overseas to possibly Australia or Canada, where he has a real advantage over the other migrants. If not, then anywhere where he can have a decent job and is able to live without desperation in his later years.

    Hard times call for hard choices. At least your son has a choice now he is young. Don;t give up any opportunity to move away from Communist Island.

    1, keep that pink IC so that can vote against pap every 4+ years. after all, can always come back to own land of birth when pap is voted out of government.

    2, keep that over priced HDB rental unit. because one lives in JB, can lease out the whole unit and get S$ to spend in MR land. the rental alone each month is more than enough to pay mortgage on a 2 car garage landed property in a nice area in JB plus a msia registered car.

    3, things are very cheap in JB. the same things 61% sheep pays for in pap island is 66.6% cheaper in JB. the very same things. it makes sense to make rental money out of HDB over priced rental unit in pap island to spend in JB. anyway, JB is not that far away. it is just like a train ride from Changi airport to Tuas.

    we bought a corner unit. one coffee shop owner bought the remaining four. our development is a cluster of 5 landed units each row. basically we are still living among own folks in JB.

    why JB?

    it is closer to our HDB rental unit.

    it is easy to get into woodlands A&E for truly catastrophic medical emergencies. other than such, JB hospitals are more than adequate, and very cheap.

    it is very cheap to live in a large landed 2 garage house in JB. if can afford, better to buy it in a more upscale area. after all, no matter how expensive it seems to msians, such landed units cost less than any over priced HDB rental 4 room units.

    life is short. if can live 3o years comfortably on just rental income from HDB rental unit, why not? no need to work. still get that occasional S$300 or S$300×2 from pap each election cycle. we repeat. can live 30 years comfortably in a landed 2 car garage house on just HDB unit rental income alone. paradise in JB.
