More local PMETs are suffering

My friend just told his company had 7 new positions, all filled up by Pinoys. I asked him if the hiring manager is from Philippines, he said no. He is Singaporean but he was from Philippines, now holding Pink IC. And I asked again, these Pinoys are also from Singapore? He said yes they are Permanent Citizens and New Citizens.

Is this alarming? So the govt keeps saying local employment has increased but more and more local PMETs cannot find meaning PMET jobs and end up doing PHV and Food delivery? PSP and WP had been asking a lot of difficult questions on employment and population but the establishment had always played hide and seek, and even labeling Leong as nonsense.

I again asked a number of friends in other industries, they said it is common, if the hiring is foreign born whether he is holding employment pass or PR or new citizen, he will hire his own natives. In the banking and IT industries, this is rampant and clear. As for other industries, it is also the similar. Do you seriously think they do not know the problem they created? You walk in MOM, you also be shocked the number of foreign born in there.

Do you think this has become a very serious and big problems for local born Singaporeans? Or you still waiting for establishment to change even after so many decades?

  • Spec Ops:

    Sinkies need to wake up fast, but they won’t when their brains are generating spike proteins.

    Lots of countries in the western world from Europe to including Australia and New Zealand had liberal immigration policies. They all have difficulties as a result.

    They have a long-running indigenous cultural heritage of at least 1,000 years or more (Middle Ages, Roman Empire etc).

    Those who have a relatively shorter history like Australia and New Zealand have land and resources. While the land in ANZAC belongs to the Queen’s and Australia never got past its prison colony system, you can at least own the house once its paid off, unlike here.

    In those countries, those who don’t buy into the WEF agenda will have their traditional heritage ways to survive on when the ‘modern civilization’ collapses on itself.

    Sinkieland on the other hand is comparable to one of those fictitious Pacific Island run tinpot dictatorship. The elites had already decided in the name of enriching themselves they would destroy a young national identity and culture that had been building since the 1950s. Judging from the 8 out of 10 who took the booster the self-enslavement of this population is perfected beyond any hope of an awakening.

    The last 2 years of psychological terrorism on the people here should have served as a wakeup call. The idea of this being ‘our country’ was dead long ago.

    I am not a business type like ‘panyusg’ but people who attack him are missing the point. You can get as offended as you like, it won’t bring back the ‘better days’ (if the 1980s when Operation Coldstore showing the MiW’s true face was taking place can be considered ‘better’). That goose is cooked.

    Its announced on mainstream media that Foodpanda is cutting jobs. In the end the decisions are prioritised for the company as a whole over the individual worker’s need to ‘just survive’, forget personal aspirations for a future. Sinkieland as a country runs similarly with the great unwashed as the expendables.

    Those of us who didn’t take the death shot and are likely to live to see 2030 C.E> will need to get our brains together one way or another.

    Unless one wants to lie down and die, then that is also a choice that person asked for and the Universe will serve.

    Opportunities are available but need to step out of your comfort zone. Singaporeans need to be more gung-ho and venture out. It is not easy and may takes year to see some success. Take some effort and try to find new opportunity outside Singapore. When you are successful overseas, come back to Singapore and create jobs opportunity for fellow Singaporean. I don’t see major change in our manpower policy for many years to come.

    Dear panyusg:

    You are not just a clown but frog from the well.

    -> I lived in China for years, dont assume Singaporeans are frogs in Singapore.
    -> Most Africans in Guangzhou are either scammers or they are shipping cheap electronics back to Africa to trade, they are mostly small timers.
    -> China Rich is trying to migrate out of China due to national security law and pandemic restrictions, even 0.01% from China, Singapore is flooded. 2 recent transactions, each bought more than 100 condos are PRCs.

    You and a number of PAPPY IBs are here to try to brainwash locals saying we are useless and need to leave Singapore to learn how to trade like you?

    A lap puppy like you reporting to white party and those other IBs here trying to wayang along are betrayer of Singapore and Singaporeans.

    In ancient times, they call you 汉奸, 最后都没好下场,it will affect your next generation since you are doing so much harm to locals. 因果报因。。。i forgot most of you are Christians, thinking you will be in heaven. LOL Dream on.

    Do you have MBA or Masters? Do you know if you write something, you have to refer and give samples of what you are writing.

    Go read your own message, there is no fact or sample presented.

    You are just another PAPPY puppy here to wag tail like Pan, Shaun Ong, Spec Ops…. Your message is clear, locals must leave and go out and give up our country and jobs to imported global talents (10M). So why you guys still here? Paid $5 per post? You dont walk your words?

    PAPigs have envisioned a new Singapore society where foreigners from China, Phillipines, Hong Kees and India are recruited as citizens and all their past policies have been very clear. Look around you in the trains and who do you see? MOE has recruited foreigners into our classrooms as teachers and admin staff. PRs are teaching our heartlander students and they are given the position as form teachers to our kids. More than 40% of workers are foreigners and PRs. Change the blue PR into pink ICS and presto! we get more Singapore citizens all of sudden being employed. Many who have awokened to the reality are making plans to leave because at this adverse stage of malaise, PAPigs still control 92% of parliamentary votes to the extent no permission is required from Singaporeans. Sinkies have castrated themselves from democratic power. There is also no transparency on our national reserves and Sinkies give blind faith that it is not being siphoned or stolen. Without transparency, Sinkies do not know. Sinkies are gaslighted in the media to see that there are not many foreigners, when you can see them all in the MRT and your workplace.

    Other than US wars in Middle East and some part of Europe, since WW1, did any country in Asia suffer from US’s supremacy? Unquote! The Big Q is WHY? If the Americunts want to initiate ANY War in Asia, it’s a Q of WHEN Not IF, period! Why are the Americunts stationing the 7th Fleet(the LARGEST of the US Navy’s forward deployed fleets comprising more than 50 ships and submarines, 150 aircrafts and 27,000 sailers and marines at any given time!)in Yokosuka, Japan and NOT elsewhere eg in the Middle East? TO ENSURE AND MAINTAIN FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY IN ASIA!!!!!!

    In REALITY, The Americunts have been STIRRING SHITS in Asia after WW2 in countries like Vietnam, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, etc and recently in HK and Taiwan!

  • PAP has the mandate:

    Stinkies should have seen this coming, Stinkieland is no longer a country but a corporate, and the ultimate aim is to make more money for the Lee Dynasty and its cronies. They will continue to import workers as long as they are cheap. The companies will pay the wages the government set and then the managers get a kickback from those they employed. Stinkies should realize that this is no known cure for cowardice.

    panyusg: This is the problem…Singaporeans waiting for jobs, waiting for instructions on what to do, etc.

    When will Singaporeans rise up, take charge and seek global opportunities?

    Hahaha…

    This will never happen with 10 Years Series templated trained Singaporeans.

    Singaporeans think that real life working situation is like 10 years series template, just memorize answer in the book without understanding/application.

    If Singaporeans cannot find answer in the book, they will just sit and wait for instruction like 3rd world country workers.

    No initiative, no creativity, no motivation, no drive. Hide behind monikers.

    So, why pay more to hire Singaporeans who are 10 years series templated and behave like 3rd world workers?

    The G is right.
    We cannot deny that REAL FOREIGN TALENTS like medical experts,scientists,engineers of various fields especially AI,bio-chem,etc,will LIKELY help *churn more* jobs for sgs.
    Take the kind of TALENTS Dr Goh n Hon SS ,together with Philip Yeo,courted to help Sg in the PAST when we were starting out.
    These days,the type of FTs the G dumps here is highly questionable.
    They were branded as *CBF* BUT ,the truth,is they are NO MORE CHEAP.
    While expen$ive ,the current FTs mostly REPLACE sgs at our workplaces without adding REAL VALUE ,if we are honest to admit as G and as a people.
    I challenge the MOM to collect data of FTs and NATIONAL PRODUCTIVITY and plot a,genuine statstical graph with NATIONAL PRODUCTIVITY VS INCREMENTAL NUMBER OF FTs over the PAST 20 YEARS.
    THE RESULT WILL TELL N CONFIRM my humble layman guesstimate.

    So,the FTs which the G has been dumping here by the plane-load$ are not only becoming MORE EXPEN$IVE to hire than former SG-PMEs these FTs replaced,they are less productive.

    So,where is ACTUAL VALUE-ADD?
    IMHO,THE FWs(Foreign Workers) contribute much more to Sg n sgs,effectively (RELATIVELY)speaking.

    So,THANKS TO FWs.
    AS for FTs,pls advise agencies like A*Star to be more due diligent.

    Not every FOREIGNER Is a Talent.
    The same goes for *$cholars*.

    Go to Guangzhou and see how many Africans are there…speaking Cantonese. While they have become a nuisance, they are in GZ to seek goods for sale in Africa. Obviously they have the customers, the money to pay…China is not doing charity in Africa.

    And Singaporeans with its Mandarin skills sit in Singapore, moaning, groaning. How many have worked in China? Lived in China? Being a tourist does not count.

    Complain, complain, complain…that is the hallmark of the Singaporeans. Bashing the PAP. Why not do something positive?

    I know one intrepid young Singaporean Chinese woman who helps to organize safari trips in Kenya. Where is CNA? Why not do a story about her?

    There are Singaporean firms in Africa, doing big business. The top echelon are Indians. Singaporean Indians or perhaps inducted as citizens.

    Let’s face it…today’s Singaporeans, mainly the Chinese sector, have lost their mojo…the guts and strive of their grandparents who migrated from China, who suffered hardships working in rubber plantations, who started small businesses, etc.

    Singaporeans are timid. The world beyond Singapore is not desirable except to visit and to come home.

    It takes guts and courage to live overseas. Even in Batam. How many Singaporeans are in Batam?

    I don’t believe in complaining. On the other hand, I voted…with my legs. I moved out of Singapore and found a living overseas. And I tell you, it is tough but the grass is definitely greener here. Don’t let anyone trick you that the grass is not greener on the other side. In Singapore, the grass is only green for PAPigs and their families/relatives. They feed off Singaporeans.

    Today, it is 10 times easier to work or migrate out of Singapore. Look at us! So many foreigners easily migrate to Sinkieland gullibly buying into the government’s faux marketing that Sinkieland is a balanced stress-free paradise island.

    It is so easy with the internet to see through the bullshit and move and be many times happier overseas. Life is definitely not boring out of a tiny tiny tiny island. Sinking Land is not the only country in the world that has jobs.

    Breaking news: Foreign workers employment growth 7 times more than locals
    How many times more than S’poreans, as locals include PRs?
    - “In 2Q 2022, resident employment rose by 7,100, while non-resident employment increased by 59,400
    The increase in total employment1 in 2Q 2022 (66,500) was significantly higher than in 1Q 2022 (42,000).
    Resident employment grew at a similar rate as the previous quarter, while non-resident employment increased significantly as border restrictions were progressively lifted.
    By June 2022, resident employment had surpassed its pre-pandemic level in December 2019 by 4.2%.
    Nonresident employment also recovered to 10% below the pre-pandemic level. In sum, total employment had risen close to the pre-pandemic level (99.5%).”
