Our reader highlighted the lackluster employment scene in Singapore despite presidential hopeful Halimah Yacob's praise about gaining much from the years she spent fighting for workers' rights.

LOCALS STRUGGLE TO FIND JOBS BUT FOREIGNERS LIVE HIGH LIVES, WHAT IS OUR GVT DOING?

A netizen airs his frustration about the government's import of foreigners not just for menial jobs but for professional jobs that Singaporeans themselves want to do.

LOCAL PMET JOBS ADVERTISED ON FOREIGN JOB PORTALS, WHERE IS OUR PRIORITY?

A friend who has been unemployed for more than a year, after being laid off by a multi-national company (MNC) in Singapore despite sending more than a hundred applications alerted me to a job posting for IT applications analyst that was also posted on an Indonesian jobstreet website. Such PMET jobs should only be posted in the National Jobs Bank to give Singaporeans priority. So far, there are already 53 applicants (21 foreign and 32 local).

The consistent rhetoric in the media that PMET IT jobs are the fastest growing jobs sector and that there is a severe shortage of Singaporeans to fill the jobs available do not seem to connect with the reality on the ground, that as I understand it – many unemployed Singaporean PMET IT professionals are facing. For those who have more information and experience on this issue – please share. What are your thoughts on the above?
