The irony of the Singapore workforce! We have spent so much time complaining that a lot of jobs are now going to foreign talents, while the locals cannot find jobs and are marginalised in our own countries.
Guess what? The Workforce Singapore (WSG) have appointed Maximus Asia, a subsidiary of American company Maximus, to provide free help to local PMETs who are looking for a job. Yes, a foreign expert have been enlisted by the authorities to help locals find jobs in Singapore.
The foreign company started operations on Monday, 12 June. In fact, it is the second foreign job placement agency appointed by the government to help locals find jobs. the first company, Ingeus, started operations in April. It was not disclosed how much the two foreign companies are paid by the government to help Singaporeans find jobs.
