There are two categories of people who will agree with the Singapore Government Immigration Policy :
1) Those Singaporeans living in "Ivory Towers", too sheltered from the realities of existence and do not understand the plight of the commoners.
2) Those "Foreign Trash" with vested self-interest at the expense of born and bred Singaporeans.
We cannot even smell the so called "Swiss Standard of Living" that SM Goh has promised us when he was the PM. Ever since these new immigrants poured into Singapore en masse, I have seen many PMETs jobless after they were being replaced by those so called "Foreign Talents" aka Cheap Labour. They are now living from feet to mouths like those in the third world countries.
The spiraling cost of living and stagnant salaries in Singapore is reducing many average Singaporeans’ standard of living to subsistence level, let alone having the mood, time and money to "manufacture" babies.
Instead of nipping the problem in the bud, the government let it get totally out of hand by doing wholesale imports of "Foreign Talents" from China, Myanmar, Philippine, Vietnam, Malaysia, etc. just like other commodities to suppress the salary level of Singaporeans which further exacerbate the problems.
Why is job discrimination against its own citizens allowed in Singapore and sanctioned by the government?
For instance :
Generally, Singaporeans have no qualms with those 'REAL Foreign Talents and Foreign Workers' who are here to supplement our workforce in those jobs that Singaporeans do not have the qualifications and/or experiences to match or may not want to take it up. What we have taken issue with are those jobs which Singaporeans who have the qualifications and/or experiences but have to play second fiddle to foreigners despite having a birthright because of their age, reservist burden, maternity leave, family obligation, part-time/self-study course and the list goes on.
Singapore should not be run like a corporation, i.e. Singapore Inc, totally devoid of humanity and treating its true blue citizens as replaceable just like a small cog in a large wheel where only the bottom line matters.
As MM Lee is hoping against hope that if one out of a thousand foreigners chooses to take up Singapore Citizenship, Singapore could have earned it is simply ignoring the huge social costs it entails. The social costs far outweigh the economic benefits and true blue Singaporeans have to bear the brunt of the government's miscalculation just like the "Stop At Two Policy" in the '70s and '80s.
We have seen how the resultant hardship and the subsequent breakdown of societal fibre have destroyed many born and bred Singaporeans and no amount of beautiful speeches before the GE will change our minds.
It has come to a point, regardless whether the oppositions are fielding unknown candidates I will still vote for them.
Are we going to witness a social time bomb awaiting to detonate at a drop of a hat when the weight is too much to bear.
Only time can tell.
