Foreign Talents, Now Global Talents

So many decades past, the cry for foreign talent repeated yearly, now more than half the work force are foreign born. Of which, many have converted into PRs or new citizens. Now even foreign born are managing state funds and also many of the GLCs. We had imported all kind of talents, even providing special service is considered a talent (LINK). These special talents were let off with a small tiny fine, we wonder why.

So since this foreign talent was launched decades ago, we should look at its merits. Firstly, more and more local PMETS and local grads are becoming PHV and food delivery. They said these foreign talents created new jobs for locals, this is probably true but they did not specify any industry. But we do understand that higher under employment and unemployment had made them change unemployment KPI that any one hour part time job is now considered gainfully employed. So if employment has indeed increased, why they fix the KPI?

More and more things are failing, recently so many spate of work site accidents. The trains were also failing that they again fixed the KPIs. I remember SGX was run by a Pinoy CTO, during his tenure, SGX was down a couple of times, never like before. Not to mentioned, the expressways were foreign engineer was jailed. (LINK) Of course, the once in 50 years ponding is now a regular affair. These are some samples of foreign talents they imported and nurtured. And foreign talents are managing our funds and also into many of our GLCs.

How about those super rich foreign talents they imported like Eduardo Luiz Saverin? What has he done for Singapore? Anyone knows? We look at the foreign talents running Grab and SEA. Grab launched at $13 and now at $2.96.

So my friends, foreign talent has become a dirty word to associate with. We know its a guise and excuse to import and convert foreigners into locals for GDP and new voters. As you can see, the quality of the talent is of suspect, even providing special service can be approved. So now our Supreme Leader decided to use a new word, “Global Talent”.

Two KEY things to take away from the latest foreign employment scheme:

1. Shorten FCF advertising to 14 days
2. Shorten issue of Employment Pass to 14 days

Basically they are accelerating and speeding up the import of foreigners to take PMET jobs in Singapore.

Spoken to a number of expats who are making $30,000 and above and have moved out of Singapore. They said they would not consider moving back to Singapore because there is no quality of life in Singapore, its a toxic culture. So who are these super $30k global talents they are recruiting?

You can see they are beefing up the population with more BTOs and private, Supreme Leader said there are no babies to live in there but more new towns are developed and launched. The acceleration of employment pass is setting the stage for massive import of foreigners into Singapore. As for the $30k super visa, the locals who are in top jobs need to beware, it could be foreigners coming in to replace them too. Had already seen it happening to a local Telco recently, you can go google and check. :_)

Foreign talent is tainted and dirty, so the new word will be global talent but it is the same soup and lame content.

Foreign talent = Global talent = Import and Convert into new locals.

  • Billy ma:

    One very real consequence of PAP policy of foreigner first then Singaporean will be an implore of resentment & anger of the new young generation on doing 24 months of National Service.

    Up to now PAP has taken for granted that because their laws said you got to do NS whether you like it or not.

    But now we are seeing new citizens can decide whether want to do NS or not. And with PAP happily welcome more & more foreigners, our new young generation will come to realise that not only they have to spend 24 more months out of the market than foreigners, they also find that they’re sidelined from jobs as well.

    Do you think the new young generation will just sit quietly like the old generations?

    Those in the 20s & 40s are bearing the blunt of this ‘foreigners most welcome’ PAP policy at this moment.
    Let see if they’re smart enough to realise who created this bad joke on them.

    Otherwise.

  • only stupid people vote pap:

    people who vote pap are very stupid.

    pap SMC recognizes only 2 medical schools from ceca ah neh land.

    1. All-India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi
    2. Christian Medical College, Vellore

    yet pap is going to import 180 doctors from ceca ah neh land.

    the stupid people who vote pap are soon going to be treated by ah neh speaking ah neh type of england. this is guaranteed to happen.

    the stupid people who vote pap say, no problem lah since pap also get treated by these same ceca ah nehs.

    so laughably stupid these stupid people who vote pap.

    they don’t know that the pap folks, all multi millionaires from self paying S$m pa roles in pap, all of them don’t see ceca ah neh doctors. They have the S$m to be able to see locally qualified doctors in private clinics.

    Unequal outcomes arising from unequal opportunities is harder for people to accept than unequal outcomes from equal opportunities. This is especially if the unequal opportunities comes from an unequal system. Unfortunately, as a lay person, you are fighting a losing battle if you are on the wrong side of an unequal system. There’s nothing you can do….that’s why it’s important who you vote for.

    Sadly, such a simple concept fails the daft ones.

    It is a stark reminder that govt must place great importance on PUBLIC SAFETY N SECURITY.

    OVER-CROWDING TINY Sg without the REQUISITE INFRA-STRUCTURE IN PLACE FIRST INVITES *SCENARIOS* similar to this.
    Not necessary just stampede but GENERAL PUBLIC SAFETY N SECURITY in our public spaces.
    Look at FOOTWAYS.
    As a senior,i oredy find it worrisome n cumbersome to have bicycles(manual n motorised) jostling with me.
    I have to DUCK reckless n inconsiderate cyclists on FOOTways meant for pesestrians,built for pedestrians.
    Worse is when pedestrian crossings at TRAFFIC JUNCTIONS are filled with not just pedestrians,young n old,rushing to cross to SAFETY within seconds BUT CYCLISTS speeding across , to and fro,causing much STRESS.

    Pedestrians have no choice, they have only the pathways to get from point to point.

    Bicyclists do have a choice, if they think riding on the road is too dangerous, they could just give up cycling and join the pedestrians on the pathways which are built for the pedestrians, mean for the pedestrians!

    Good attitude, good behaviour. Singapore needs more of such good and well behaved ex PMETs to be taxi drivers to drive the foreign talents around.
    After this generation they would all be extinct, replaced by foreign talents.

  • theforgottongeneration:

    Million$ PM/ministers yet still cannot develop or nurture the local talents to become global players. Because only REAL leaders can produce subsequent generation(s) of leaders or talents. So very sia suay, hor.

    Sorry to say, but all this global rankings that our educational system is very good, blah, blah, blah … is just wayang. As a famous saying goes: An army of donkeys led by a tiger is vastly superior to an army of tigers led by a donkey. So SG may produce the best of bests soldiers, but led by a pig that couldn’t fly even given a very long runway – the eventual results can be EXPECTED.

    Million$ clowns don’t understand basic Management 101. Yeah, so must blame Singaporeans as Sinkies, call us Free Riders. Excuses, excuses, excuse for top-level INCOMPETENCY.
