PAP MP LOUIS NG PLANS TO ROLEPLAY DIFFERENT JOBS TO ‘UNDERSTAND’ THE GROUND BETTER

First term MP for Nee Soon GRC Louis Ng announced that he would step away from his post at least once a month to take on various work stints to put himself in their shoes and understand what is really happening on the ground.

In his Facebook post, Mr Ng explained: “To really understand and really see what’s happening on the ground and to be able to make a difference, I want to gain some first-hand experience. And so, every month, I will try a different profession and literally put myself in their shoes.”

His first work stint will be at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital where he will experience the life of a healthcare worker, he claims he “will do everything a healthcare worker does in his or her normal shift and do an actual shift at the hospital”. After his KTPH stint, he intends to work as a taxi driver, a coffee shop assistant, cleaner and a secondary school student.

He hopes that these work stints will help him gain more experience and allow him to draft better questions and improve policies in Singapore.
