Singapore’s mass importation of work pass holders

Singapore’s mass importation of work pass holders easily go back more than 30 years and seriously, foreign job applicants using fake academic credentials to secure employment in Singapore isn’t something new.

So, I ask why is MOM’s investigation into those 15 work pass holders who declared qualifications from Manav Bharti University, India (MBU) making such big news?

I have some thoughts.

For decades, ‘well-conditioned suckerporeans’ have unquestionably and blindly trusted the ability and competency of the pap government to vet the authenticity of foreign job applicants’ academic credentials but alas, after many years of working alongside them, many Singaporeans now realise that many such so called foreign talents are only so so in their performances or what the Chinese would call ‘loud thunders and little rainfalls’.

It was the local authority and not MOM that exposed MBU’s selling of fake degrees over the years.

‘Employers have the primary responsibility to ensure the authenticity and quality of the academic qualifications….that they wish to hire’- MOM. I disagree with the above MOM statement. Let me explain.

The reality in the workplaces is that too many employers just do not have the required resources, means and connections to effectively vet the authenticity and quality of the academic qualifications of their foreign hires and that is why MOM being the regulator has to step in and its approval sought. Isn’t MOM aware that their approval comes with responsibility?

It is most despicable of MOM to push that responsibility to the employers when things screwed-up but when things are fine, they sure know how to collect the employment levies months after months and years after years without fail.

I will be blunt. If that is the standards and attitudes of Singapore MOM, then MOM ministers’ jobs and responsibilities aren’t too difficult, heavy and impressive really.

MOM, I clap for you!

Just imagine if only a fraction or say, 1% of the hundreds and hundreds of thousands of work pass holders who have landed employment in Singapore over the decades possessed fake academic credentials, then thousands and thousands of our citizen job seekers would have been deprived or shortchanged of employment opportunities in our own job market and many of those jobs are decent paying jobs. I could go on…

Think.

    Simon, it is a well-”KNOWN” fact that employers are the MAIN CULPRIT…ask any Employment Agency you “KNOW” and the answer is simple…lower pay & longer hours without the fake degree unable to employ the Cheep-cheep Talented Labour for a SONG!!!

    So??? sing-a-song of Tuppence and a Pocket-full-of-LIES!!!

    Dear Simon,
    You said “foreign job applicants using fake academic credentials to secure employment in Singapore isn’t something new.”
    =================================================================
    Really, Simon, you should stop blaming my great PAP ….

    As long as foreign talents do the job well, it does not matter that they lies about their academic credentials.

    Even ROC Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen also lies about having a doctorate degree when she did not have it.

    Stop blaming PAP. Blame it on the lazy and unmotivated Singaporeans who did not have the guts to speak up and expose fake credentials of foreign talent because FT are better than the Singaporeans.

  • NotMyProblem:

    I am not sure how MOM did the checking!

    Degrees were conferred to the students by the Universities. Universities were recognised by the countries they were situated. So who is in the wrong?

    In the case of degrees from “Manav Bharti University”, how can one tells the degree were fake when it was given by the University? If MOM called up the University, it would confirmed the degree was from the University. If MOM called the India’s Education Minister, it would also confirm there is such a University in the country!!! So how?

    If MOM cannot check how the employers going check?

    The solution is to stop issue employment passes to all Indians based on their degrees. They could only be employed as construction workers!! During my time working in factory, Indians with MBA were just worked as workers.

    It may be cruel, but it is their false. The fake degree holders kill those genuine degree holders.

  • MOH - Must Over-Haul:

    Let’s put yourself in whoever working in MOH. It is a long tedious process to check every FT’s credential. You did well, on top wont praise you, no promotion, no pay increase why take the risk?. You did wrong, blame blame and more blames are on you, cause top will not take responsibility. Who would want to jeopardise his or her career like this? So you die your own business.

  • CECA is Trump Card:

    What to do? Can you revoke the CECA.

    Maybe when our national productivity and quality in some sectors is bad, then we see some action from government.

    Goo luck Singapore. I have enough of rubbish in our employment market, I am going to work overseas where workers are truly world class building the nation to be superpower.

  • Billy ma:

    This is but just another piece of the real face of PAP exposed.

    It’s unbelievable that PAP didn’t know about this forged certification.

    It’s just a little inconvenient as far as PAP is concerned.

    In the past, PAP can easily hide the truth but not now.

    Anyway, PAP will simply tell all this ‘so what it is such’, ‘it’s not widespread’, ‘if it is, it’s all the fault of the employers ‘.

    PAP likely to use the pandemic to cover up this matter.

    Likely another ministerial statement in parliament.

    Sad

  • Harder Truths:

    A Sinkaporean’s worst enemy is another $inkaporean. Locals will cheerfully hire FT as long as they themselves are doing well. There is no such thing about ‘nation’ or ‘country’ or ‘loyalty’ in $G. This is who $ingaporeans are. They are willing to sell their own grandmother’s virginity in Desker Road to get a condo unit.

    FT look after their own kind. They are street smart and do not rely on any government – they do things by themselves, for themselves. They have no hesitation to lie, cheat or steal what you think is yours. In the near future it will be the FT who will succeed, while the pampered $G workers will become the labourers serving the new masters.

    The regime will do nothing to stop it since they want the most ruthless people as citizens. And that is certainly not the high-fashion easy living boys and girls of the $G K-Pop generation.

  • PAP is Finished:

    Very true. From young, Singapores are trained to compete against one another in the school system. This selfish quality is most eveident in the university.

    Luckily mt time still not like that. Friends will still look out for you in the jobs or pull you in to join their company.

    It’s because of money, people turn traitors to their own kind.

    Even my time some women are very lazy. If there’s a man around they won’t even bother going to the hawker center. The laziest and choosiest people in Spore.

    So long they have cronies, politicians’ pandemic cronivirus reigns supreme in every sphere. You die your funeral.

    Politicians are for themselves, not for the People.
    To each his own. It’s like The Shepherd and the sheeples, The Prince and The Pauper; Aristotle and Aristocraps!

    Two different communities in two different worlds.

    Migrant burden: How foreign workers are illegally recruited in Singapore

    Migrant workers seeking employment in Singapore can pay up to 20 times their salary to illegal agents. CloseUp investigates why this is happening.
    PUBLISHED7 HOURS AGO
    FACEBOOKWHATSAPP
    SINGAPORE – This is Singapore’s dirty little secret. Few locals want to work in industries such as construction. Yet, some foreign workers willing to do so have to pay thousands of dollars – sometimes up to $20,000 – to get these jobs.

    Who is illegally asking for these fees? Singapore employers, fellow migrant workers and underground recruitment agents. CloseUp investigates.

    CloseUp, a new investigative video series by The Straits Times, seeks to give a deeper look at issues that hit close to home. It aims to delve beneath the surface of some of the biggest headlines in town….”Unquote .
