Recently, my friend from Philippines who is working as a helper told me Filipinas are also not spare from cheap labour issue in Singapore.
Singapore is getting in more helpers from Myanmar to work in Singapore. Myanmar maids are paid S$300+ while those from Philippines are paid S$600 / S$600+. Few are getting helpers from Philippines.
Seems that anything, anyone who offer low rate service is welcome, as low as possible. Quality is not important. This counrty is fast going back to third world again. Singapore a first world country with third world pay standard for most locals. Lowly paid locals are struggling very hard to make ends meet. Something is very wrong.
