The PA oversees all the official “grassroots organisations”, namely the Citizens’ Consultative Committees (CCC), Community Club Management Committees (CCMC), Residents’ Committees (RC), Neighbourhood Committees (NC) and the Community Development Councils (CDC). PA also runs the National Youth Council (NYC) and the People’s Association Youth Movement (PAYM), which reach out to young people.
Dear Mr Inderjit Singh, In your Budget 2014 Speech, you highlighted the shortage of workers as one of the triple whammy faced by businesses today. At the same time, I believe Singapore is near the breaking point with regard to the foreign influx. Once the point is breached, anti-foreign sentiment will rise exponentially, worsened by the accompanying Singapore-bashing from foreigners residing here. However, there's still a little time left to avert a social meltdown.
First, we can't believe the temerity of this anonymous person hiding as the page's admin. Who is he or she to issue that kind of statement? Is he the national ombudsmen? Or the leader of the supreme council? Secondly, this appears to be a case of the pot calling the kettle black. "Get your facts right?" Is he referring to the untrue allegations made by PAP hogs like Jason Chua that parties like SDP are receiving foreign funding?
I want to soundly refute this very shallow attempt at purposefully misconstruing the Swiss situation to support the cause for the free flow of labor for Singapore. Switzerland, was never part of the EU because it never wanted to be part of the EU. It rejected EU membership in a 1992 referendum. In 1994, Switzerland and the EU started negotiations about a special relationship and these negotiations resulted in the signing of 10 treaties negotiated in 2 phases.
I had read so many complaints regarding about Foreigners and mentioning pulling down PAPs. come on guys, stop complaining and give suggestions. If any of the authorities are kicking all the foreigners out, who is helping us to build houses? Who is helping us to clean our country? U, your parents or your children? If not can you all please stop complaining? To those who keep complaining about FT, if you are so sure that at least 30% of the Singaporean will work as construction or cleaner, hey we will all support you.
Ongoing speculation of a hijacking and/or murder-suicide and that there was a flight engineer on board does not sway me in favor of foul play until I am presented with evidence of foul play. We know there was a last voice transmission that, from a pilot’s point of view, was entirely normal. “Good night” is customary on a hand-off to a new air traffic control. The “good night” also strongly indicates to me that all was OK on the flight deck. Remember, there are many ways a pilot can communicate distress. A hijack code or even transponder code off by one digit would alert ATC that something was wrong. Every good pilot knows keying an SOS over the mike always is an option. Even three short clicks would raise an alert.
Residents of Kuda Huvadhoo in Dhaal Atoll in the Maldives reportedly saw a "low-flying jumbo jet" flying over houses early in the morning of March 8, the same day Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 went missing. In a report by Maldivian daily Haveeru, residents described the aircraft which flew over Kuda Huvadhoo at around 6:15am as being white, with red stripes across it. Haveeru Daily is the longest serving daily newspaper in the Maldives, established on January 1, 1979.
I refer to the article ” Wage Credit Scheme: $800 million in pay subsidies for over 74,000 employers by March 31 ” (Straits Times, Mar 18). 1 in 3 no pay rise? It states that “Of the Singaporeans eligible for the scheme, two-thirds received pay rises last year, which this first tranche of Wage Credit Scheme payouts is helping to fund.” - Does it mean that 1 out of 3 Singaporean workers who earn less than $4,000 did not get any pay rise at all? Breakdown of those with no pay increase?
