He was investigated and eventually let off with a stern warning from the Singapore police. CNA wrote an article that ended with him declaring his "unwavering" view about how he "still feel this (Singapore) is the best country in the world". Fast forward to 2020, Singapore is facing the Covid19 pandemic. The ex-DBS employee took to his LinkedIn to criticise Singapore.

HEALTHCARE SECTOR GROWING, BUT HOW MANY JOBS GO TO SINGAPOREANS?

In this connection, anecdotally – everytime you go to a hospital – most of the staff that you see, from the reception to the wards, pharmacy, cashier, etc – do not appear to be Singaporeans? What is the breakdown of the workforce in the healthcare sector currently – into foreigners, permanent residents (PRs) and Singaporeans? As to PRs and Singaporeans – it may be interesting to note that from 2004 to 2016 – we granted 555,659 and 228,840 new PRs and new citizens, respectively.

With regard to jobs – from 2006 to 2016 – the employment growth for locals and foreigners was 376,800 and 701,900, respectively. How many of the 376,800 locals’ jobs were S’poreans? So, how many of the “locals” (PRs and citizens) employment growth of 376,800 went to Singaporeans, since 467,659 new PRs and 208,840 new citizens were granted in the same period from 2006 to 2016?
