There it is again. Malaysians with sub $3K salaries on EP's. So apparently this is a quite common arrangement not published on the website. Interesting.

Anyway, congratulations. Makes an interesting counterpoint to the guy with 350K/pa job who get rejected doesn't it.

The Govt wants foot soldiers , it doesnt want to fill the country up with upper management what is the point in that?

I would guess that the vast majority of PR's / New Citizens that are granted are low end workers from Malaysia , mainly of the Chinese ethnicity.

Told you before, but you don't believe us.

Some Malaysians whose salary is 1.8 k also hold EP.

Is it equal to all the nationality? The answer is no.

But the Malaysians who wants to give up PR and get the CPF must wait until they are 50s too.

We, the citizens of Singapore, pledge us a united ppl, regardless of the race, language. Religion.
But please take a look at how our government grant ppl's PR or Citizenship?

It is a bit funny right?

Well, it makes sense if you think about it. One united people (the citizens) so up until they become citizens, then the country can discriminate all it wants to. And boy do they ever.

Actually, the government has come out and said that they use immigration to maintain the racial makeup along the original historic demographic lines (percentages). Therefore they are constantly tweaking the immigration policies to add or lessen to the existing racial percentages. During the run up to 2000 and the quest to become an IT HUB they brought in '000's of Indians (good programmers, etc at reasonable prices as compared with westerners with those skills). However, they didn't watch the demographic percentages too carefully and didn't realize that a lot of them were going to just try to use the system and in 2011 they realized that the Indian demographic jumped from 7% or something over 9% and a direct reduction in the Chinese percentage by 2%.

So, ever since, we've seen lots of Malaysian Chinese being given PR & citizenship and to a lessor extent Indo & PRC Chinese. At the same time, PR and citizenship has been sharply curtailed for Indians here for both the fact that a lot are just abusing the PR so as to flip properties or using Singapore as a stepping stone to the west. They've gotten wise to their abuse and are even refusing SGC for a lot of Indian PRs or refusing to give PR to children to help them decide to move on as it were. It's a pretty crappy way to run a country, but there you go.

I find it disturbing that EP requirements are lowered so much for Malaysian. Like lost the privilege to be part of merit system =(

How do you think similarly qualified people from other countries who were rejected with much higher income (along the required guidelines) and then find out WP salaried Malaysian were being handed EP almost "under the table" as it were (unpublished and definitely NOT anywhere on the MOM site). What meritocracy?
