    FT discrimination agst locals

    looks like 9 years late and maybe hundred of thousands of Singaporean has being affected. Now a change to help the Singaporean. I wonder what has become of us when it takes such a lengthy amount of time to react. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/mom-to-update-government-framework-that-deters-employers-from-discriminating-against SINGAPORE - The Government rules that ensure that employers do not discriminate against Singaporean workers by hiring foreigners will be updated this year. Minister for Manpower Josephine Teo announced plans to update the Fair Consideration Framework in a Facebook post on Wednesday (Jan 1). "Expect stronger deterrence for discrimination against Singaporeans when hiring, but also stronger support for employers who are committed to giving our people a fair chance," she said, without giving details of the review. In her Facebook post, Ms Teo spelt out the Manpower Ministry's key milestones in 2019, such as adopting a 10-year road map to raise retirement and re-employment ages. She also noted that workplace fatalities have declined consistently since 2015 and sustained a record low rate of 1.2 per 100,000 workers for the past two consecutive years. The Fair Consideration Framework was introduced in August 2014 on the back of a slowdown in the inflow of foreign workers after Singaporeans voiced unhappiness about them taking away good-paying professional, managerial and executive (PME) jobs from locals. Under the rules then, companies with more than 25 employees must advertise professional, managerial and executive posts that pay less than $12,000 a month. The advertisements need to run for at least 14 days before the firms can apply to the Ministry of Manpower for an Employment Pass (EP) for a foreigner. The framework was last updated in July 2018 to cover firms with more than 10 employees and jobs that pay less than $15,000 a month. Under the framework, firms found to be favouring foreigners in hiring are placed on an MOM watchlist and their applications for EPs are scrutinised more closely. Since 2016, the ministry has placed about 600 firms on the watchlist. A total of 2,300 EP applications have been rejected or withheld by MOM, or withdrawn by employers. Some 260 firms were taken off the watchlist after their hiring practices improved.

  2. Move to raise private-hire firms' service, safety standards PUBLISHED JAN 13, 2020, 5:00 AM SGT Private-hire cars with deep dents, broken lights, mismatched tyres or which look like they have had a good few years on them are on the way out. But young drivers will remain, for now. Rules and regulations for the point-to-point (P2P) regulatory framework are being finalised. When effective from June, they are likely to encourage firms to raise their service and safety standards. ... https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/move-to-raise-private-hire-firms-service-safety-standards
  3. The following is a letter to Minister of State for Manpower Tan Chuan Jin From: xxxx Date: Wed, Nov 2, 2011 Subject: A step in the right direction: discriminatory practices against Singaporeans To: TANCHUANJIN@mom.gov.sg Cc: query@fairemployment.sg Dear Mr. Minister: I just read the article entitled
  4. New rules set to be laid down next month stipulate that private-hire vehicle drivers must be Singapore citizens who are at least 30 years old. This comes amidst discussions between the National Taxi Association and National Private Hire Vehicles Associations. One of the key concerns prompting the proposed rule is the problem of youths taking to driving private-hire vehicles full-time. As of February 2019, there are 41,000 registered PHV drivers, of which 40 percent of them are under 40 years old. Over 6500 of them are below 30 years old. However, the data does not include non-registered PHV drivers who operate “hitch” services. Hitch drivers are allowed to only make 2 ride-sharing trips a day, however many are known to take on more rides across different ride-sharing operators. The NTA and NPHV are also in discussion about issues such as contracts between transport operators and drivers, drivers’ insurance and the issue of whether PHV can do roadside pick-ups. The result of these talks will be announced next month. Article from redwiretimes. No official news. Looks dubious. But been trending around some dealer websites also. If really true how many will be affected?

  9. I would like to share my Car Rental Experience overseas here so you guys will manage the situation better than me when you go for your holiday. Earlier this month, i hired a car with a reputable international car rental company for my Gold Coast holiday for 7 days. I picked up the vehicle from brisbane airport and returned it 7 days later after filling up at the airport back to full, when i returned the keys to the airport counter, i was told their system was down and they couldnt print a receipt for me. I asked if they needed the petrol receipt and they also mentioned it was not required as, if the petrol was not full they will billed it my credit card. I was abit late for my flight because i was stuck in the dreadful M1 highway along with the city bound brisbane traffic on a weekday morning despite leaving my hotel 4 hrs earlier, i decided to practice some trust and just leave it as such. As with our common practice of returning the hotel or rental car via keydrop. Guess you would have guessed by now my credit bill now came with some funny charges, the Singapore office told me the extra charges were due to 1) The car was returned 3 days earlier, so they would charge me more because i only used the cars for 4 days instead of the 7 days. My actual usage aside, this really takes the cake, coming from the business standpoint, if i booked the car for 7 days and PAID for 7 days, by returning on the 4th day, it is to the car rental company advantage because they could have made extra money by leasing out for the 3 days already paid by me. Effectively they are telling me, a 4 days rental will cost MORE than a 7 day rental (not daily rate hor) but the total bill. 2) The car was not returned with a full tank of petrol. i scrutinized the receipt and found another shocking fact, i signed out the car at 18k mileage and returned at 19k mileage. The invoice generated shows i signed out the car at 19k mileage and returned it at 28k mileage. I wrote back n highlighted all the irregularity challenging them what kind of penalty is being imposed on returning the car 3days earlier when it was paid in FULL. 2ndly, i emailed in my petrol receipt showing it was refilled at the airport. 3rd, the mileage in their record was grossly wrong as it was nearly impossible i would have travelled 9700km in 7 days or by right as they claimed 4 days which will worked out to 1300km per day or 2400km per day respectively. While i am sure some of you folks will be able to do that on a GOR, i merely took day trips out as i have my folks with me. My hotel should have my records and my car being parked overnight in the garage as i have a private parking lot accessible by key card only in the hotel. i received a call later from the singapore manager asking me to confirm whether did i actually use the car for 4 days or 7 days because the petrol receipt showed me pumping on the 7th day (DUH). I will not name the company now because its still being investigated, but if they are really behaving in such way, the name will be big big in the coming days to come. Some references for you folks next. 1) Please do a proper handover when you return the car, try not to use the key drop service. Have a personnel inspect the car and the petrol and generate you a proper receipt with the proper mileage ESPECIALLY if your rental has mileage limitations. It was fortunate mine was unlimited mileage. 2) If you are in my case, late for flight, system down and all the bollocks or if die die need to use a keydrop because ur flight is red eye, take a picture of the petrol receipt beside the odometer/ petrol gauge showing the mileage with date/time if possible with the airport in the background. i was lucky i kept the petrol receipt. Let me know what you guys think and if you guys know the consumer authority in Queensland, it would be helpful as well. Have a good friday ahead.
  10. https://sg.news.yahoo.com/taxi-drivers-could-obsolete-three-223246289.html What do you guys think? I think the day is surely coming. Even Uber is intensely investing in this sector. The day Private Hire companies will truly huat is when they can get rid of their highest cost - human drivers.
  11. Need a driver of van or mini bus for hire to ferry 6 persons for sighseeing and eating places.any recommendation.
  12. Imagine you are fetching a neighbor to work and this neighbor gives you a bar of chocolate. If you get into an accident, the injured neighbor is not covered by your private car insurance and he/she sues you. This is because private car insurance excludes "hire and reward" usage. Carrying of passengers with payment in this case. Anyone knows which insurer is willing to extend private car insurance to cover "hire and reward" ? Buying commercial car insurance is out of the question because you are not running a business and the payment is low.
  13. http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/debt-collectors-called-in-after-car-deal-turns-sour Mr Yee, 36, bought a Chevrolet Optra from Gold Automobiles in February, but it broke down a few weeks later after suffering problems such as faulty air-conditioning and a defective car key. Mr Yee said he bought it so he could drive his 60-year-old mother between their Ang Mo Kio flat and his aunt's Jurong home, as his mother is caring for his newborn cousin. He had the car towed back to Gold for repairs. "I haven't seen it since," he said. "To my horror, I realised two months later that the car ownership had not been transferred to me."

  19. Graduates working as maids in Shanghai SHANGHAI: In Shanghai, a small but increasing number of highly educated graduates are choosing to work as maids. As more expats and local talents relocate to Shanghai to live and work, demand for qualified domestic helpers is on the rise. The pay is attractive as qualified domestic workers can earn up to US$5 per hour, double the usual rate. Domestic workers caring for post-pregnancy women and babies typically earn more than US$900 a month. That is almost double the average pay of a fresh university graduate, which is less than US$500. Shanghai Women's Federation's chief Sun Mei E, said: "They see this as a sunrise industry. Hence, many are willing to come into this, especially college graduates and those with higher education. There is also a small portion of them who aim to set up their own domestic services company." Thirty-year-old Li Na chose to become a domestic worker despite objections from her family. She now earns up to US$2300 a month. Helping out in expat homes, she said learning to speak English and paying special attention to the needs of these foreigners adds value to her service. "I noted down where the Consulate General of different countries were as well as where they can go shopping or buy groceries. Some of them are only here for two or three years and will like to explore the country in the shortest time possible by making use of weekends. You can do research and share travel tips with them," said Li. What she offers is a far cry from the bulk of domestic helpers in Shanghai made up of migrants from rural parts of the country who may not have had much education. Some may have different perceptions of cleanliness and are not used to household chores in the city, such as the cleaning of carpets and washing of delicate clothes. To help them, the Shanghai Women's Federation organizes free training. Through a simulation of the home environment, students get a chance to experience the modern lifestyle in both a typical Chinese kitchen and a more western design kitchen. The students will also get to learn how to use more high technology electrical appliances. There are currently 500,000 domestic helpers in Shanghai.

Jobs are available particularly in banking,hospitality,technology,manufacturing,oil & gas,healthcare,mining and textiles. Global executives are attracted to Singapore for its high quality of life,congestion-free traffic movement,its safety standards.For Indians,the three--hour flying time and Singapores assimilation of Indian culture are added attractions.Most companies operate out of economic zones where the maximum personal income tax is 15%.

  23. From Yahoo!News: Minister of State for Manpower Tan Chuan-Jin announced on Monday new guidelines targeting discriminatory practices against Singaporeans such as job advertisements indicating that foreigners are preferred and the preferential hiring of foreigners over suitable Singaporeans. These new guidelines were drawn up in response to the high number of cases -- 51 in the first nine months of this year -- of unfair treatment based on nationality lodged with the Tripartite Alliance for Fair Employment Practices (Tafep), reported The Straits Times. Here are three case studies on why Singaporeans are lodging complaints of preferential treatment: .Case study 1: Foreigners hire fellow countrymen - A Singaporean complains that a foreign manager in her IT firm prefers his own countrymen to qualified Singaporeans. Management tells Tafep that it had trouble finding suitable local candidates, but later admits some departments have seen an increased representation from a particular country in recent years. Company then agrees to hire and develop Singaporeans as its workforce core. Case study 2: Discriminatory practices by an employment agency - An employment agency specialising in foreign recruitment raves about why foreign workers are better than Singaporeans in an e-mail to clients. The agency corrects its e-mail and pledges not to do so again after Tafep steps in. Manager involved is counselled and makes a public apology while staff are sent for relevant training. Manpower Ministry issues a written warning to the agency after conducting its own investigations. Case study 3: Over-reliance on foreigners - A chief executive was swamped by complaints from his local staff about the company hiring too many foreigners from a certain country. CEO was surprised of this practice as he was not aware of it. Many employees left for another company which hired less foreigners. .Tan, who was speaking at a tripartism forum, stressed that while foreigners are still welcome to work in Singapore, the core of a company's workforce must remain Singaporean. The Member of Parliament for Marine Parade group representation constituency said that even though the government is tightening its grip on importing foreign labour, employers on the ground must still be watchful over their actions as many Singaporeans have expressed displeasure over discriminatory practices in their workplace.
