UNEMPLOYED LOCAL MAN BEATS UP FOREIGN TALENTS IN TWO SEPARATE INCIDENTS

Too often, we hear of a foreign talent being hauled to court for an act of aggression towards others, just because they think they have the right to. But in the news today, one local unemployed man was given a jail term for assaulting an American man who was trying to stop him from beating up a bus driver.

The same man and his group of friends had also earlier in a separate case beat up a Malaysian cleaner, because he felt the cleaner and his friends were noisy. Clearly a case of a man unable to control his anger, and is just spoiling for a fight.

GRAB DRIVER ONLY MAKES $27 A DAY FOR 12 HOUR SHIFT

I just recently started driving for Grab. I thought this is a good way to make some extra income, or at least to earn more than what I currently earn. Heard a lot of stories about people making more money as they started driving for Grab and Uber.

But my experience for the one month I have been driving is directly opposite! The revenue for a 12 - 14 hours a day shift is about $200 on average. I rent a Honda Vezel Hybrid rental, and it costs me $85. The petrol per day is about $35. Then there is a daily deposit deduction of $10, plus Grab takes 20% commission from the $200 earned.

RESUME TAMPERED WITH TO MAKE APPLICANT LOOK BAD COMPARED TO FT

He asked to see the CV interviewer had, and realised his CV had been cropped and edited, most probably from the HR people. He then lodged complaint to the CEO, and company's internal investigations shown that the recruitment manager from a certain nationality was the culprit, and apparently it was intended to make him look bad so that the manager's "friend" could get the job. Other CVs were also doctored as well, particularly Singaporean applicants.
