Given the way mom approaches maid issues, this is perfectly believable. But nothing we can do if they don't want to work for the benefit of singaporeans. We just have to work to ensure our skills set are always relevant.

The problem is MOM confirmed they will not check.
They say employer's responsibility to check.
If employer company CEO is an indian from india, he can warn HR dept NOT to check.
Then 80% the "highly qualified" foreigners from india in SG may have FAKE degrees.
So far, there is no solution to this in SG.
State Authorities pass the buck (just the simple act of checking) to private sector and employers.
Why is this so?
I suspect MOM is very afraid to discover the truth.
Because then they will be under fire for allowing to happen.
Have to explain in Parliament.
I think in the long term this is going to wound SG deeply.

Also, have to bear in mind it is a contract job.
This pay level sounds depressing for this age. But good perspective on them halving the experience due to lack of relevance. I recently declined an offer as it was 20% lower than what I was drawing in private , couldn't be at peace with it when I think of peers in govt with higher pay.

With ns or no ns? 2.1 or 2.2?

Thanks! Major struggle really coz of the 1 year contract. Offering me same salary as Current job but with the “promise” of a better annual package. Comfort vs new challenges/progression

Unless you managed to move up a class (e.g 2nd upper to FCH) between the time you apply for the job and your graduation, else, what is there for a fresh grad to negotiate?
