You mean LOC for DP holders?

the woman that wrought that letter is a xenophobic parochial biatch who didn't see the irony in that she worked for a foreign school and benefited from foreigners being in singapore.

She is also relying on old data as well. Criteria for LoC's were tightened up early this year or late last year. It's no longer automatic. They are vetted but just not as strictly as a regular work visa.

International schools are not allowed to apply for EP, so the quality of teachers is bad. Make it difficult for DP holders also, might as well close the shop called Singapore Inc and send everyone home.

You're ignoramus as usual, my wife works on an EP in an IS.

I agree though with your feeling about Singapore shutting up shop.

Maybe the Govt testing the waters by having "letters" to see how potential new policy decisions might sit with the electorate :D

Also to check to see if anyone is actually reading the newspapers anymore. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
