PAP'S LIBERAL IMMIGRATION POLICY WILL HURT OUR CHILDRENS PROSPECTS IN FUTURE

In Singapore, the situation is drastically different where anyone can come in on a tourist visa to find a job. There is no onus for employers to prove that a local cannot fill a job, while there are more fake/ unaccredited qualifications that the government would care about given their seeming inaction to this issue.

In summary, PAP's liberal immigration policy is taking away opportunities from our youths which could have worse consequences in the long run.
