Yah... Watched the full episode last week. 

SG still is the luckiest among all other countries in the region. 

I also feel I am not directly affected should not complain too much comparing with those directly affected.

i watched one of the episodes earlier, thanks for putting this on 1 page. 

We are quite fortunate here although many have also lost their jobs. i am surprised there have been no race riots in neighbouring countries yet.

Recently my friends and I received quite a lot of "part time jobs...... Etc from many different non-local numbers... 

My wife too.... I said these likely a scams too given if the are really genuine jobs posting why do they need oversea numbers? 

Unless they have something to hide. 

Hope such "jobs posting" are really looking a helping people out of jobs.

Saw the whole Episode and it is a poignant reminder that this is real

 

in the meantime, we here who are employed and still in a relatively unfazed place must be in gratitude to be in this position. I definitely am!

Watched the 1st eps and the reality on the ground is real. 

What I cannot stand the english of our Singaporean.... every sentence must use the word Actually. I'm actually very tired. I'm actually trying to book a hotel right now. Actually, actually actually. Like a punctuation mark. Goodness.... even though the thai dont speak good english, its more bearable. The HK-ers english is the best amongst these 3.

My apologies for nit-picking on their english.

Actually I’m also actually irritated with the use of actually!haha

besides actually, there is the overuse of “can” which I believe is just a translation of 可以. Only Singaporeans and Malaysians use “can”

@Mkl22 Haha! So I'm not the only one. I guess its the way SGeans talk. Quite painful to the ears `actually' once it is overused.

I think it's very true..... Whilst unemployment is lower, there's no note whether people earn same, more or less.....or whether one guy needs to work two jobs 

I would believe the case highlighted in this program may be common, minus condo, car, new baby etc.

Yup..not sure what is MOM's treatment of people who have been laid off but doing gig economy jobs as they struggle to find something better. During this 'gig' period, does MOM consider them to be gainfully employed?

Those who are retrenched and have joined the gig industries will be considered employed. So she is not wrong although we know this is all bulls**t.
