A nation of PHVs and food deliveries

This pandemic a lot of companies especially F&B are shutting down, rising local unemployment becoming very obvious. At my flat, I notice many local unemployed at home. Recent months, I also see a rising number of neighbours doing Grab Food, the shock is sometimes the same flat would have two or more Grab Food riders!

The exponential growth of young people doing PHVs and too many senior PMETs out of jobs have forced a change of PHV policy that only 30 and above are allowed. I already had many friends who graduated from Poly and ITE doing Grab Food, some are doing PHVs as they had license. The PHV friends told me many young grads from Polys and universities doing PHV too, even Masters grads. Singapore seems to have very highly educated doing PHVs and Food Deliveries. People from all the over the world would be shocked to find out that Degrees and Masters in Singapore from NTU and NUS are doing low level menial jobs.

Many jobs that can be done by locals are in the hands of foreigners, many foreigners have become PRs or new citizens. These PRs and new citizens support PAP and hire their own natives which explains it is getting very difficult for home grown to land jobs and often hearing locals being discriminated at work place. This is a country where our leaders keep saying and reminding locals that we need to keep our doors wide open to foreigners and let them compete in every sector. I sometimes wonder if other countries do actually such to their local citizens especially in a pandemic.

Anyway, there are too many foreigners in Singapore, that includes PRs and new citizens. And since General Election is over, I know we can complain and complain, nothing will change since next election is years away. I just want to air my grievance here and let all know the gravity of the situation we home grown face and getting worst and worst during this pandemic. The only jobs most locals can have are PHV and Food deliveries on top of being self employed, this is very sad for many of us.

  • Boh Kia See:

    Rahim, start campaigning now. Go block by block, staring with those gads working as Grab delivery agents. then spread out.

    So long as the PAP is in control nothing will change until heaven caves in.

    There is no other way. Go like a rocket to tell the people.

    Ridiculous for so many of them to be doing delivery and PHV jobs
    .Need to tweet the FT policy quickly to take care of the locals first.

    aiyoh. now know hor the ultimate mechanics of the white monkey idiots bs about FTs creating jobs for sinkies ? perhaps the white monkey idiots are right all along ? creating jobs for phv or food deliveries or one fine day may be maids in your own country lor ???

    //This is a country where our leaders keep saying and reminding locals that we need to keep our doors wide open to foreigners //

    aiyoh. of course the white monkey idiots will need to keep on saying it lar ? they need to keep the propaganda going until it is hardwired into the brain cells of those daft sinkies so next time the white idiots do not have it so often as daft sinkies will say it on automatically (since it is already hardwired) believing so lar ???

    good for them as they are at a different much rewarded position and perspective to say it but may not be good for the average daft sinkies lar ???

    I like put the blame on the free riders who wanted to have someone to represent their interests (in job security), yet at the same time would not stick out their necks to vote for what they wanted.

  • The most colorful rhetoric came from far-right parliamentary leader Alice Weidel, who said Merkel had turned Germany into a “hippie state steered by feelings” that leads the world in “taxes and expenditures and in taking in asylum seekers from anywhere.”

    Importing so called talents and trash.

    CECA is,by far,the MOST STOOPID PIECE OF FTA inked by PAP G.
    It was politically helmed by George Yeo ( advised or told to do so or not) and architectured by HENG $wee KID?

    CECA is plain stupid as we can observed by the MOSTLY ONE-WAY COMMITTMENT OF SG to INDIA,so far.
    So many INDIAN JOBLESS FTs came here to oust sgs out of their PME jobs?
    Can anybody deny?

    WHAT IS THE REAL NET GAIN FOR SG N sgs?
    WHAT *RETURNS* THIS CECA gives to TEMASEK HOLE-ding$ in effect or has it proven to be NEGATIVE instead even as sgs’ JOBS are being sacrificed just so to FULFILL SOME CECA *BILATERAL* LABOUR FLOWS???

    IT HAS BEEN A DISASTER socially and economically.
    It has not been a win-win proposition but A LOSE-LOSE one for SG n sgs,has it not?

    All in all,a ONE-WAY TRAFFIC THAT BENEFITS I DIA AND JOBLESS INDIAN NATIONALS WHO ARE HAILED here as FOREIGN talents???

    Stupid,very stupid.

  • Japan:

    My block so many locals without jobs, some ex PMETs forced themselves to go do PHV, some end up at the hospitals doing the menial jobs of pushing patients around.

    All these have local qualifications from ITE, Poly and even university. And many are like in their 40s and 50s only….

    This is very sad for Singapore honestly.

    I see those third world foreigners from Vietnam, India, Philippines, PRC and Malaysians in office doing the jobs we can do and many even living in condos…… Their degrees all from unknown universities….

    Singapore govt keeps saying we need more and more and must keep doors open. They do not create enough jobs, they just sacrifice older local PMETs to make way for their beloved imports. Many of these imports have become PRs or new citizens.

    The worst thing is when these foreign imports start bringing their families, friends and relatives….. plus hiring their own natives…. which explain now very hard for locals to find jobs because many of these foreigners which includes PRs and new citizens are in management!!!

    Thank you 61% voters…. you made this happened.

    WE WILL SEE A LOST GENERATION like Japan trapped in frequent pervasive unemployment across decades and some of these distressed households oppressed by life-long struggling mortgage.

    The baby-boomers expecting the delusionary CPF payout or investment income that will also never going to materialize in a broken economy of slow deflationary economic environment will die in poverty struggle of their own.

    When the baby-boomer generation is gone, what will happen to their children and grandchildren without jobs and shelter but constant hunger pangs?

    LEE-jiapore for most will be a politically-anemic society of votes-in-exchange for subsistence survival in a near dead economy.

    The true price of political stability deception of PAPpypolitics is A STARVATION-RIDDLED ECONOMY of no escape inevitability.

    No one party has a monopoly of wisdom, information and integrity – never in history. ALL DICTATORIAL REGIME ENDED UP THE SAME DESTINATION – collapse and failure.

    A NATION OF PHVs and food deliveries WON’T have enough customers to share among them of ever-expanding competitors trying to survive in a pool of SHRINKING TARGET as more and more get retrenched or facing pay cut in employment.

    Then what?

    For the lucky ones meeting lower demand, life is reduced to rat scavenging of putting just enough food on the table waiting for an uncertain tomorrow each day ahead.

    May have to leave children at home and send wife to do MASSAGE WORK to supplement subsistence – where “foreign talents” can and most likely offer “better” services and steeper discount as well.

  • most uselss:

    I saw in many forums that this unemployment topic is not well received, it looks like this country is overwhelmed with foreigners who already become PRs or new citizens.

    So since almost 50% are foreigners, such topic does not stir much….. This is sad, no wonder the PAP keeps publishing that we need more and more foreigners on MSM without much fear of repercussions since their foreigners will support them and those include PRs and new citizens.

    PAP has the numbers to win elections, they dont really bother if people keep complaining about foreigners or lousy policies

  • Jman:

    The part about many people having job difficulties and turning to food delivery is true.

    What is not quite true, is that there are so many jobs done by foreigners that we locals can do. Not in the sense that we cannot do it. It is just that these jobs are so transient these days as companies reconfigure and relocate their offices and staff every few years. What we see are the revolving doors of foreign people coming and leaving every few years, not the same bunch who are here for good.

    There is likely to be more of these jobs for locals in the next few years. But don’t get your hopes up – these jobs are hardly as stable as we hope.

  • temasick is bleeding:

    3m citizens.

    0.4m PRs aka aliens.

    3.5m aliens.

    total 6.9 million, being 3m citizens 0.4m PRs aka aliens 3.5m aliens.

    this means in a land of 6.9m mouths, 3.9m or 56.5% of the mouths are aliens.

    wonder why need our youths to waste their lives in NSF NSR when the pap island is already infested with parasites.

    In my present multinational company 99% FT from all over. 1% (i.e. 2 workers) are local – me and the delivery boy. Now after CoVID nothing is certain except company is hiring more FT.

    We need foreigners to join Singaporeans to fight …
    These are jobs Singaporeans do not want.
    If not, these are jobs that Singaporeans have no talents in, so PAP and companies cordially invite foreign talents.
