Looks like the practice of hiring non local is rampant.
I get a sense that we were really suppress and was ousted out of a role in an organisation due to preferential behavior.
I wonder where was that meritrocacy and the idea that if you study, work hard, and do good, you have a bright future.
Now it seems to be depends who you know and who is the hiring manager ?
Should Name and Shame them
About 50 companies that were unfair to Singaporeans when hiring workers have been taken to task, Manpower Minister Lim Swee Say said yesterday.
More than 500 Employment Pass applications from these employers have been rejected by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) or withdrawn by the companies, he said.
These firms are among the 250 on the Fair Consideration Framework watch list, which tracks firms not doing enough to hire and groom Singaporeans. The framework was introduced in 2014 to get companies to look for suitable Singaporeans before hiring foreign professionals.
At the end of last month, there were 250 companies - in industries ranging from information and communications technology to professional services - on the watch list, up from 100 at the start.
These companies get guidance over six months from the Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices to improve their employment practices.
