I fully concur with Minister Tan Chuan-Jin’s statement that some companies hire FTs because they truly faced difficulties employing Singaporeans due to lack of skills by our local workforce.

Singapore planes had spotted yellow floating objects in the gulf of Thailand suspected to be from the missing MH370.

Fact - many local PMETs were replaced by incoming foreigners and even if they could find job the salary is being suppressed. Real reason - government wants to convert as many foreigners into new citizens for their votes. 2.Polytechnic education is enough - why study so hard for a degree when you can't get a job afterwards?
Singapore will soon have a new facility dedicated to foreign domestic workers living in Singapore. The clubhouse will create a space where domestic workers can host gatherings and do other activities including relaxing, accessing computers and money remittance services.

Local entertainer Moe Alkaff says Singapore’s rigid education system and his wife’s concern to be closer to her family were the “push” factors that led him to migrate with his family to the United States in 2000. The 48-year-old earned his fame as host of local TV series “Gotcha” – Singapore’s version of “Just for Gags” — which aired from 1993 to 1994, as well as his starring role in 2001 hit local comedy, ”One Leg Kicking“.
Nowadays, all we talk about is gender equality, feminism, about how women are as equally good and capable as men. But when we talk about getting the bill, it becomes a whole new subject in debate.
