CUT FOREIGN WORKERS IN CONSTRUCTION? HOW ABOUT IT? SAVE S'POREANS FROM EXTINCTION

I refer to the article “BCA seeks to cut number of foreign workers” About 300,000 foreign workers are employed in the construction sector. “We aim to do that – to cut it down by 20 to 30 per cent… Whoever is left… will be the higher-skilled workers,” said Dr Keung. I would like to applaud Dr Keung for what I believe is the first ever major initiative to reduce foreign workers in a sector. As I understand that the bulk of the rank-and-file workers in construction are non-Singaporeans – what is arguably even more urgent is to reduce the foreign workers in the IT sector, as anecdotally Singaporean PMETs are the most affected in this sector.

FOREIGN WORKER BOOKS RIDE - HIS STORY WILL MAKE U APPRECIATE UR LIFE & UR FAMILY

My first passenger today brought me to tears and I had to hold it back till I dropped him off.

At 5.46am, I got a booking from Bt Timah Road. It didn't state what number, just the road name. I called him, he said he didn't know what number or where he was. He just said he was sitting at a bus stop at Bt Timah Road.
Bt Timah Road is so long. I asked him to describe what he saw nearby. He said cars, trees, at a bus stop. I asked him to look for the bus stop number, I got silence and muffling sounds.
