Because PAP got a very strong 70% supporters and voters in the 2015 General Election who happily voted for them and allow the PAP to do whatever they like and wish.

There is really nothing we can do about it unless we have more opposition members voted into Parliament which i don't think is likely in the next GE.

My ex-company has several foreigners with Letter of Consent issued by MoM to work in SG, too.

These are spouses of IT Consultants and living in condos. Why rich FTs need to work here to replace citizens in their job?

PAP obviously have failed to create good jobs for us for the past 12 years. Yet, they still want to give away jobs in other industries to foreigners?

Such gross negligence of overpaid educated elites for a small tiny country. They don't deserve any respect at all.

FWs are NOT FTs. Time for PAP to reduce 5% FTs that is overdue for 10 years.

You can't blame the wind for blowing the seeds.

That is why PAP needs and desperately controlling the media and also, any voices or dissent against their bad lousy policies.

I used to work at an international school and one of my duties was to process applications for foreigners to work at the school.

In my many years of working there, I never came across the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) rejecting any application for Letter of Consent (LOC), which is required for Dependant's Pass holders to work in Singapore.

Such applications are seemingly approved by the MOM easily and pretty quickly.

To put things in perspective, our staff strength was under 50 and LOC holders made up a quarter of that.

This seems in contrast to the Government's efforts to help the vulnerable segment of professionals, managers, executives and technicians.

Many of the jobs that these LOC holders are doing can easily be filled by the locals and, yet, the MOM seems to approve every application for LOC.

The MOM has tightened the criteria for Employment Pass applications. It is time that the criteria for LOC applications are also reviewed and tightened.

but it make no sense to restrict them from working as they are already here.

The main issue for Singaporeans is overcrowdedness the fact they are already here is not an issue. that they work.

I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I will do my utmost to keep them alive.
Against tyrants and adversity, I will strive.
Together, a better future, we will realise......

=Opening the floodgates and worse, foreigners come to replace us in our job!

=PAP has sliced us with knives and yet, put salt on our wound again.

=From SG country to 3rd world, or a land of abysmal.

=PAP cannot manage this tiny island with excess MPs who are overpaid.

Policy Institute has been misleading PM Lee??

Till date, the quota for Medicine, Computer Science . . . .is still not able to cope with growing needs for A&E in NUH, SGH . . . and worse, we imported more than 100,000 FTs for IT.

A the end, MoM just issue toilet paper via Employment Passs and call it Branded Pulp.

Let me recollect.

All passes in Singapore allows any foreigner to work here, including Tourist Visa.

From Training Pass, from Student Pass convert to EP, Long Term Visit Pass . .
