JOB FAIRS MUST GIVE INFO ON TYPES OF JOBS & PAY, NOT OMIT THE OBVIOUS

Our reader claims that job fairs these days omit the obvious and do not give enough information on the types of jobs they offer or their pay. They will merely tell you they are offering many jobs but not how many Singaporeans they actually hired. Do you agree it is not transparent enough?

GOVERNMENT CAN'T JUST SAY IT HELPS THE POOR, MUST SHOW DETAILS OF FINANCIAL AID TOO

The Government should give details of how much aid was given to dispel distrust in our welfare system. Why is it that half of those who applied for ComCare did not qualify for it? If the Government claims it is indeed helping the poor, then it should jolly well be transparent and disclose details of how much financial assistance they are giving. Without more transparency, people will have the impression that they are falling through the cracks or that the Government may not be doing enough.

FAS TO EXPLAIN WHERE DONATION MONEY WENT TO

SportSG has taken the FAS to task, and asked the FAS to submit a full report on how the huge donations was managed and used by the FAS. The allegations came to light when Hougang United chairman Bill Ng, who is leading a team to contest the April 29 FAS elections, alleged that he donated a sum of $850,000 to the FAS, but was not sure how the money was spent. The FAS then clarified that only $715,000 worth of donations it received could be linked with Ng. Out of this, $500,000 went to the Asean Football Federation's (AFF) football management system, where former president Zainudin Nordin had asked Ng to donate to the AFF.

He pointed out that one- and two-room HDB households will not see any nett increase at all, while for most other HDB flats, the nett increase will only be between $2 and $11 per month.”

I believe Singaporeans generally trust the Government about its use of the people’s money. This trust may be further enhanced if there is more transparency on how our money is invested and used.

HAS THE GOVT BEEN TRULY TRANSPARENT & OPEN OVER ALL MATTERS?

According to the Straits Times news report ”GE2015: PM Lee launches PAP slogan ‘with you, for you, for Singapore’, and manifesto” (Aug 29) – “Mr Chong, 62, took aim at opposition parties for being evasive. By contrast, the PAP has been transparent, open, and “where we have fallen short, we have taken decisive action to right our wrongs”, he said.” Since we are talking about “has been transparent, open” – why can’t the Government be transparent and open about the following:
