With all the Bro'ing going on here, I'm starting to feel like I've inadvertently wandered onto Brokeback Mountain.

I read in ST today, it seems for the first time since 2012, the number of job seekers exceeded jobs. Resident unemployment is at its highest. So they started tightening foreigner employment and it resulted in resident unemployment?

Sounds logical. If enough companies fold because of employment costs, then the close shop and everybody get unemployed. The foreigners leave so they don't figure in the unemployment figures, but the Singaporeans/PRs become unemployed and and do show up as unemployed. As more and more companies close shop the local unemployment will continue to rise in all probability.
