Sometimes i wonder, if one day, all the FTs are gone, how many of those who kpkb about them in the first place will take over the large gap they left behind?
you sure you will forsake your comfortable, office job with air con and internet access for a job that ask you to stand in the hot sun doing menial tasks?
Face it, it’s inevitable. It’s best to be rational about this. Blame it on the fact that Singapore has no rare resources except for its people. The only thing you can do is treat it as challenge and improve yourself. Not whine to the govt to do everything for you.
Either that or you start having more babies.
The only thing I don’t agree with is the ‘efficiency’ of our govt. They are bringing them in too fast, and too furious. Heck they shouldn’t even announce such unnecessary news like the ‘white paper’. you think locals will clap and say, “wah PAP damn good siol! care about our economy which will benefit our nation as a whole in the long run!”
No. we are all selfish, and you dumbwits, by announcing stuff like these, only serve to cause panic and increase unhappiness amongst us!
Of course, it’s very obvious your announcement isn’t planned for locals in the first place. It’s more for ‘putting out the fire’ after introducing tighter labour measures, ie. by saying you will bring in more cheap labour, you are telling interested investors looking to set up their base in the region:
“hey look! not to worry, it might be tough now but I assure you cheap labour is here to stay in the long run!”
I’ll even go so far as to say that this report here is a fear mongering tactic to make Anti FT ppl shut up. It’s like “See! Whine la! whine somemore economy collapse ask you go wash toilet bowl then you know!”
Of course, All these are just my opinion. Feel free to hate, love or fug whatever the hell you want.
I just hope you at least do your research first and not be so Anti-FTs just because 100 of your friends on FB are also Anti-FTs. 🙂
And fyi, disliking a Ah Tiong because of his or her inability to assimilate is very different from disliking them because they are job stealers.
I belong to the former; i have no qualms with them working here, but I hate some of them because they talk too bloody loud on the bus.
