WHY SINGAPOREANS CANNOT COMPETE WITH "FOREIGN TALENTS"

Singaporeans need to spend at least $20,000 and study hard for 3-4 years to earn a Bachelor Degree, but some foreign talents only need $800 and 30 minutes to buy a degree from degree mills. The degree can be Bachelor, Masters or Ph.D., depending on what employees want. Market changes easily for Singaporeans, the degree obtained from NUS/NTU might not be relevant. They also cannot afford to spend another 3-4 years studying. For foreign talents who buy their degrees, the so-called degrees can always be up-to-date as they can buy any type they like.

VOTING IN A WEAK PRIME MINISTER IS A BETRAYAL TO SINGAPORE

Under LKY and especially under GCT, we were on way to being a 1st world society, one that is prosperous, graceful, educated and of course cultured. Will you consider our current PM to be weak? He see himself, it seems, as some sort of successes at establishing Singapore as a regional leader (although this is debatable, since both President of China and US visited our neighbours but not us)

FOREIGNERS WILL DISPLACE SINGAPOREANS TO LOW WAGE JOBS

Where are the official statistics to prove that foreigners create good jobs? What good jobs are created? Who are employed in these good jobs, if any?. On these questions, The Prime Minister choose to remain indefinitely silent. About 7 million graduates enters the Chinese/ China job market every year. How many more millions in Indian/ India equivalent? Boys and Girls/ Newly graduates/ Job seeking Citizens - YOU will be competing against this ODDS, for any job placement. Double whammy you say, with this PAP GOV in continuation more SURPRISES are awaiting ( not accounting the MILL certs yet )?

DEGREE AND ACCREDITATION MILLS WORK TOGETHER TO DECEIVE EMPLOYERS

While I welcome Manpower Minister Lim Swee Say's clarification on fraudulent educational qualifications ("Work pass, PR applicants who lie to be 'dealt with firmly'"; Tuesday), it raises several more issues. First, Mr Lim makes a distinction between a fraudulent degree and one that is obtained from a degree mill. However, insofar as some degree mills literally confer on the "student" a certificate without any work being done, the distinction between a company that sells a fake Cambridge University degree and a degree awarded by "Cambridgeshire University" are very slight.

LIM SWEE SAY'S STANCE ON DEGREE MILLS HARMS SINGAPORE

Globally degree mills are seen as illegal. There are reports where workers bought degree and try to pass themselves as graduate. When they are caught, they are at best fired, in some cases jailed. Buying a degree is not a crime, but trying to benefit from it and passing it off as accredited qualification eg using it to gain employment or promotion is a crime in many states in US n many countries. This is to maintain the integrity of degrees issued by tertiary institutes from the states.

PAP WON'T ADMIT MISTAKE OF LETTING IN TOO MANY FOREIGNERS

It is already clear that the PAP cocked up on the fake degree saga by relentlessly letting foreigners in without doing due diligence. It is clear as day that a committee needs to be set up (like what WP proposed) to weed through new applications as well as past applications, and kick them out. But doing this is akin to saying that they cocked up and WP made a good proposal. So rather than owning up to their mistakes they just try to sweep it under the carpet and treat it like nothing happened.

25 FOREIGN TALENTS JAILED FOR USING FAKE DEGREES TO GET WORK PASSES

25 Foreign Talents from Myanmar, India and the Philippines pleaded guilty to using fake degrees to obtain work passes in Singapore and were sentenced to 4 to 12 weeks jail each. The fake degrees were submitted as part of their applications to obtain work passes for Singapore and they went undetected until just recently. The MOM issued 20 S Passes and 5 EPs to the 25 FTs with fake degrees between November 2012 and June 2013. The MOM later discovered that the degrees were fake after doing some additional checks with the foreign institutions that the degrees were supposedly from.
