WHY S’PORE PIONEER GENERATION UNCLE CAN’T EVEN AFFORD A DECENT MEAL?

A reader sent us this depressing story shared by Roy Chuang, a local photographer on Faceboook, who helped pay for a meal for a poor pioneer generation uncle who could not afford a decent meal.

Read his post here.

“There is seriously something wrong with Singapore…

Today while I was buying “mixed rice” for late lunch, there was a very old man (at least 70 + yrs old) lining up behind me… he couldn’t even stand up straight…

He was wearing a “Security” pass… working as a security guard.

As I was paying for my meal, I saw him ordering just plain rice, one egg and one vegetables… I asked him if he was going home… he told me he was going to work, 2nd shift… 12 hours.

I told the store Lady to add some pork, and chicken drumstick for him and bought him his meal…

I think that’s the least I could do…

What I don’t understand is…

Why Singapore, being a so called Developed country… do not care or do enough for the Pioneers???

Don’t tell me they are working for fun… they can’t even afford a proper meal…

When he heard that his mixed Rice is $6.00, he was like… “huh? So expensive?!!!”

If he can’t even afford a $5-6 meal at his age, then our Government is definitely not doing enough! He even have to choose his food to make sure it doesn’t exceed $2….

What kind of retirement is this?
