Pritam Singh Asked PAP For Breakdown Of New Jobs For SGreans And PR, Chan Chun Sing Flat Out Refuse To Answer

This however, drew a sharp rebuke from Trade and Industry Minister Chan Chun Sing, who proceeded to give a speech that lasted for half an hour, outlining the government's strategies for growing Singapore’s economy and creating jobs. While the speech was possibly already prepared in advance, he still failed to answer Pritam's questions. So, are the Whites hiding something from Singaporeans, something that would not look too good on them?

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?
