Heard one Mulligan's ex-employee attempted suicide at Singapore River in desperation. He survived (unfortunately or fortunately, that's subjective). Wasn't covered by the media though. He is now under arrest for attempted suicide.
I felt like telling the police that they would be going after the employer who drove him to suicide. Why is the victim being prosecuted here?!
And even silly that Lifebrandz washed their hands off, saying they sub-con'd it to Massive !
In fact pubs open and close, including a few big brands recently, but the Aquanova crew had not even been given a warning of things .. that's what possibly hurt more than a few. Or a 1 month notice served would have helped tide over those struggling, albeit temporarily
MOM should set up a fund to pay off staff like this, and also those cheated Foreign workers, to pay them first while the employer gets prosecuted.
