University Students Petition For Lower Transport Fares, Because They Are Still Students

University Students Petition For Lower Transport Fares, Because They Are Still Students

However, this does not apply to University students, as they will still be charged with adult fares which costs up to $1.48 for an average journey of 10 km. This does sound a tad bit unfair, as University students are still students, just like the polytechnic students. They don't hold full time jobs, and thus, have no steady income to pay for the increase. In light of this, three undergraduates started a petition to appeal for university students to receive the same rights.

ELDERLY IN SG HAVE TO WORK UNTIL THEY DIE

Not one of us thinks the elderly aunties or uncles, who work selling tissues at hawker centers, or collecting cardboard and pushing their trolleys full of cardboard on the roads are actually working because they want to alleviate their boredom, or, in the words of a famous person here, for exercise. Only our Ministers think the elderly work and carried on working way past their retirement age, because they want to.

This is just their way of telling Singaporeans that the problems they all talked about, are actually not problems. We just make it an issue. Nonsense! Why would these elderly folks continue to work when they could not even walk that fast anymore? They would rather be somewhere relaxing, enjoying the fruits of their youthful labour, enjoying the retirement money they had worked so hard for all those years ago. Except, there are no retirement money, and there is no relaxing to be had. To be able to eke out a living in Singapore, one has to work until one cannot walk anymore.
