But the only problem is that our govt is unwilling to adopt such a policy for one reason or another.
The govt. has these policies in place. But they club citizen & PR into the same quota.

The only quota is for S Pass employees, none other.

No one complains about MNCs but only about Foreigners. I guess Singapore(ans) needs to rethink its(their) priorities; does it want to be a cosmopolitan attracting investment, capital and talent or a kampong living to itself.

If Singapore doesnt want MNCs there are a number of other places in Asia where they could setup shops and move their personnel (Hong Kong, Sydney, Shanghai ... ).
Singapore is way past kampong era, and we did well without many foreigners. Contrary to what you idiots believe, MNCs come here not for the ease of hiring you idiots, Singapore has its own selling points. If you read up more, there are many ways to attract foreign investments. The reason why we need to increase our productivity now is because we have too many sub-standard employees (PRs and foreigners) like yourself, so as to make up your deficiency. I am sure we can survive without any of you ignorant retards.

haha sounds like someone is really insecure about himself. i'd suggest you get off ur computer and go read a book or something. whether you like it or not, singapore needs an open-door policy to chug along. if your gov one day decides to shut its doors to us 'retards', it'll be total chaos for Singapore and the SGX will stand to show the bloodbath.

who are you to tell us that we need you? why don't you ask your own government to open its door wide and hire us with high salaries? oops, i forgot your own country may not be doing well, with bloodbath already everywhere.

Are you stupid or what? Chaos in Singapore without you sub-retards? You are even more ignorant than I thought. Nobody is saying Singapore should shut its door ENTIRELY, only from retards like your kind. Do youself a big favour and make post some intellectual views or dont post at all, dont disgrace your monkey face.

Hi,

Worked with various PR/'S' Pass/EP colleages.

In gist, most are 'ok' type with dreams/hope to cherish their family. They either send loads of $$$ home or start to bring their love ones to stay in SG.

They are SOME, which I love to send them off the first boat/ferry out of SG. These are the 'vomit blood' types. 'Smoke' their through and through. I think we are too nice to 'accomodate' these bad minorities.

But without their love ones in SG, the 'FT' push up the bars by 'spoiling' the market. Think in terms of putting in longer hours in office. More 'face-time' they clocked. Also, weekends they are on standby, clear emails, readily respond to calls from their bosses [Not necessarily fellow colleagues. Same par/rank need not bother calling them.]. I am in favor of having more FT to take a tougher position that they join us as 'Pink' holder. [Else, AU style of tough PR extension rules should apply.] I am glad that some of my former FT associates are putting up roots into SG. They do bring along their strong expertise and their spouse are talents in their own rights. Glad that the process of granting 'Pink' card is getting more stringent.

Thus, as Pink card holder, I will advocate to 'earn' from FT. Please feel free to charge them market rate 'or beyond' for the housing rental. ['In Rome, do as the Roman does' - When we 'Pink' holders were/are in overseas for work/study, they (citizens of the host country) also charged us the 'sky' for accomodations. At times also got to get the short end of the stick. Behave meekly even though we are the paying customer?!?]

Close to 80% of PRs have university degrees, compared to about 15% of Singaporeans. I think there is confusion over the term FT. FT should refer to PRs and Employment Pass holders, not the 200,000 on S Passes and work permits who have to leave after a few years. Generally, FT are more qualified than most Singaporeans, but the temporary workers are not. There are very few Singaporeans in top management of Singapore MNCs because most highly qualified Singaporeans prefer to work for the Govt or are bonded because of a scholarship. The lesser qualified Singaporeans usually work for FT bosses, hence the unhappiness.
