Has the PAP government been sleeping for 9 years?

As early as 2013 Uber operated in Singapore & it was clear that the platform company has “Significant level of management control”.

“significant level of management control” would imply that platform companies are in a position where they are, for example, able to assign jobs to the workers and later take a cut of the revenue. ”

It took the PAP government 9 years to introduce this policy and 11 years to enforce CPF contribution for gig economy platform companies?

Injury and insurance only now?

So all along these workers were not protected?

Is this an effective and efficient government with regards to slow proposal & policy implementation that affects the workers of our country?

  • Wake Up SGs:

    Yes, the PAP gov has been sleeping ..for more than 9years in fact.
    Just look around OUR SG.
    Its falling apart.
    Theyre only working for themselves to ensure their mil$ salaries++by grabbing more $ from hardworking and struggling SGs.
    Plus erecting bil$ spanking new infrastructures to cosmetically cover up the rot within..
    Have eyes to see, will see .

    Some serious n not a few fatal even.

    I notice more n more cyclists are becoming to think THEY HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY ON FOOTWAYS,MORE SO THAN PEDESTRIANS themselves.
    Go observe the way cyclists SPEED across CROWDED PEDESTRIAN CROSSINGS,IT IS GOING TO CAUSE HARM N INJURIES to others.

    LTA N MR I$WARAN,PLS TAKE NOTE.
    DONT JUST SENANG-SENANG TRY TO MITIGATE CYCLIST-AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS BY CAUSING CYCLIST-PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS,OK?

  • NotMyProblem:

    PAP is not sleeping, it knows exactly what’s happening!

    It just depends on who benefits from its policies. If it for themselves everything would happens immediately. But when it for the peasants they just drag their feet!

    Just look at what our civil service employees are getting pay increase and bonus so that they will vote for the PAP.

    PAP is not sleeping, it is the voters who were! Before each GE, we could see “chicken wings” distribution and these peasants were just intoxicated and starting voting for the PAP.

    Singaporeans are ballness, unlike the Malaysians!

  • John Doe:

    The PAP Administration is helluva liars all these 9 years.

    Their sharp focus on RK, WP, Kirsten, Dr Thum, POFMA, Roy, Leong, Terry SPEAKS VOLUMES of WHERE WHAT HOW this Regime of BASTARDS work AND get their Multi Million Dollars Salaries from.

    And when WP begs them NOT to raise GST, they won’t bat an eyelid, as per continuing THEIR DISTASTEFUL ATTITUDE towards the poor when a few cents were begged from them to give to the poor, the REPLY was EAT in hawker centres, DO NOT EVEN think restaurants.

  • BIG READ: Stop the PAP Steal:

    Many SGpns probably get it quite wrong.
    With TH investment losses PILING up, and obviously MORE on the horizon – the PAP Administration is GRABBING free citizens MONEY to replenish or to cover IMPENDING losses.

    Look at this CLOSELY and PERTINENTLY – why is CPF BOARD so so SILENT and IT is POLITICIANS incumbent making decisions ‘TO FORCE CONTRIBUTIONS’.

    WHAT IS CPF role – can the PAP Administration explain bcz CPF Board serves the people of SG. AND CPF BOARD SHOULD NOT take orders from sitting politicians bcz SG is NOT PAP, and PAP is NOT SG.

    What does CPF ACT, Employment Act, and the Constitution have to say? Are these acts USELESS?

  • opposition dude:

    PAP needs to wayang mah, it’s as simple as that. This gig economy thing wasn’t such a huge issue in 2013 because it just started and there weren’t so many locals employed so back then can sweep under the carpet.

    Now, too many locals have been employed and the election is approaching as well so need to make loads of noise and run non stop reports about gig workers so as to fool as many as they can lah, simple logic what. If gig workers get what they want then PAP can assume that they will vote for them, never mind that these are menial jobs and one can’t earn that much from them. More important is the large numbers employed and if CPF contributions are not enforced there is a good chance that these guys may vote opposition instead.

    I’m just waiting to see how many of these people will lose their jobs once their companies see just how much in CPF contributions they have to pay.

  • Stupid Singaporeans Vote PAP:

    You are barking up the wrong tree, bro. PAP has been repeating time and again all their nonsense including always asking for strong mandate, FTs to create job for Sinkies, raise taxes, GST…etc. And losing millions of our tax-payer hard earned money to “due diligence” funds. You should bark at them. We will not be bored if you do that.

    Stupid Singaporeans Vote PAP. I will always keep repeating this.

  • GIG economy:

    CPF contribution is the right direction..

    For their family sake if they want to afford a basic house.

    Better to learn a new skills and find a better jobs as it is not a long term one.
    Can be easily replaced in future,such delivery job.
