JENTRIFIED Citizen – I just have to share this blog post by Andrew because it expresses what I feel about the Feeble framework on hiring introduced by the Ministry of Manpower . Why has our country descended into this pathetic stage where we have to implore employers Not to discriminate against hiring Singaporeans just cos they have easy access to millions of cheaper foreigners who are allowed by our weak govt to work here? And why did MOM have to keep apologising as it were to employers to assure them it is not aboit hiring us first???
