AUTHORITIES NEED TO DEAL WITH THE SOCIAL PROBLEM OF IMMORAL ACTIVITIES AMONGST FT

With Singapore economic boom and the influx of thousands of foreign workers, we are experiencing a culture shock of unSingaporean behaviors and attitudes among our guests workers. Every Sunday, Paya Lebar and Lucky Plaza have become a 'flesh market' for thousands of Banglas to gather, stalk, prey and pick maids for their lust and sexual desires. Also check-out every Sunday at the East Coast Park, Carpark D, Banglas and maids pitch tents for their 'sex love nests’ for their immoral activities. These foreign workers have displayed behaviors that have been very disconcerting and caused unease and disgust among Singaporeans. This is a social problem that needs to be addressed by the authorities. Inaction by the authorities only encourages promiscuity in Singapore’s family oriented society.

FOREIGNERS ARE NOW AFRAID OF SINGAPORE’S OPPOSITION!

I could not help noticing a few fallacies is Dr. Juan's argument. He is complaining that cost of living is very high, and yet wages are being suppressed by employing foreign workers - however, if (much) higher wages were to be paid for everything, wouldn't the costs go up accordingly. If instead of bangladeshi workers working 5am-10pm for dirt cheap, Singaporean workers are employed in construction sites for 5-8 times those wages, won't the already expensive HDB housings cost 3-4 times more than they currently do? While articulated nicely, thus hiding these sort of fallacies, and sugar coating fear mongering, ultimately, I think (and yes, I may be wrong, after all I am a FT, I don't understand the Singaporean view point that well), that the overall arguments are wrong, and touches on the fears of Singaporeans, but the proposed "solutions" will spell an almost immediate doom for Singaporean economy and its people.
