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?

LOCALS STRUGGLE TO FIND JOBS BUT FOREIGNERS LIVE HIGH LIVES, WHAT IS OUR GVT DOING?

A netizen airs his frustration about the government's import of foreigners not just for menial jobs but for professional jobs that Singaporeans themselves want to do. He came across local ITE students who cannot find jobs and have to work as car washers. It seems like Singaporeans are now relegated to the lower end of the employment spectrum?

PAP MINISTER PROMISES TO CONCLUDE INDIA CECA AGREEMENT, MORE FOREIGN TALENTS INCOMING?

Despite widespread misgivings among S'poreans at the effects of the CECA with India, primarily revolving around the clause recognising the qualifications of Indian nationals in 127 professions opening the door for them to work here, the PAP is going ahead to conclude the Agreement with the south Asian giant. The aforesaid clause has already been implemented in certain PMET sectors such as banking and this has resulted in an influx of foreign Indian nationals into the foreign banks to the extent that places like MBFC and CBP have been renamed by locals as Mumbai Financial Centre and Chennai Business Park.
