Taman Jurong residents were arranged a free hotel stay at nearby Genting hotel during the circuit breaker period while migrant workers in essential services moved into vacant HDB units at their estate. Isn't it less troublesome to just move the migrant workers into the hotel?

PERPETUAL POOR LIVING CONDITIONS: NO SURPRISE ZIKA VICTIMS WERE CONSTRUCTION WORKERS

Employers pay little attention to the hygiene, safety and cleanliness of workers’ living quarters on construction sites due to the transient nature of their stay there. It is also more convenient and cheaper to house them in these sites than to accommodate them in purpose built dormitories which provide better conditions. In the worst cases, they are made to live in buildings which are still under construction. Inadequate drainage results in pools of stagnant water forming whenever it rains, turning these work sites into breeding grounds for mosquitos. Cases of dengue outbreaks and Chikugunya have been reported before in the past and they usually occur in areas where migrant workers live. Therefore, the latest revelation that the majority of affected victims are migrant construction workers is not surprising.

EX-PAP MINISTER LINKED TO COMPANY FINED $300,000 FOR FILTHY OVERCROWDED WORKER DORMITORY?

For exceeding the housing limit of 4500 foreign workers at the Blue Stars Dormitory by 542, K T Mesdorm was fined $300,000. Somehow, the fine seems totally disproportionate to the offence. Hmm.. perhaps the judge forgot an additional ‘0’? Assuming Mesdorm charges an average of $300/foreign worker/month, Mesdorm stood to gain $162,000 every month.(542 X $300)

TEO SER LUCK: MIGRANT WORKERS PREFER TO SLEEP WITHOUT MATTRESS BECAUSE IT IS MORE COMFY

When Teo Ser Luck visited their sparsely furnished sleeping quarters, he said: "Quite comfy! I learnt that some workers prefer to sleep without a mattress as they are used to it back in their home country. They find it more comfortable and cooler too!" We can't help but wonder when he tried to lie on their bed - which is nothing more than a wooden plank - did he find it comfortable? Or does he sleep on an expensive pocketed coil mattress with luxurious silk bedsheets back at home? Is this another case of Ministers living up in their ivory tower where they think that the poor elderly folks on the street collecting cardboard boxes do it as a form of exercise?
