JOBLESS: IS OUR SOCIETY ACCEPTING FOREIGN TALENT MORE THAN SPOREANS?

I have been jobless for 2 month, while going through advertisement over the web, i found a few posting that make me feel very disappointed. Why has our society accepting foreign talent more than pure Singaporean instead? Furthermore, i manage to see a few big agency such as "Achieve Group" & "MCI Career Services Pte Ltd" have a few posting with requirement asking for "SPM" qualification. What is our country turning into? There are also posting that state down "Chinese/Mandarin Speaking environment". We are a multi racial country, such requirements are very unfair to people who fall under the race of "Non Chinese".

LOWEST JOB GROWTH SINCE 2009, BUT MOST JOBS WENT TO FOREIGNERS?

Since the “Overall seasonally adjusted unemployment rate remained at 2 per cent. Compared to the last quarter, unemployment rose to by 0.2 percentage point to 3 per cent for residents and 3.1 per cent for citizens” - does it mean that most of the job growth went to foreigners and PRs – as the citizens and residents’ unemployment rates increased by 0.2 per cent whilst the overall unemployment rate (including foreigners) remained unchanged?
