There are two things to consider here.Daisydoo wrote:Not being huffy strong eagle but I beg to differ with your point of "nationality" coming into play in every country I think you will find it is illegal in most of Europe to discriminate on those terms.
a) Even with the EU open labor markets French will hire French first, Germans will hire Germans first, and so on. The only time it is different is when a worker cannot be found.
b) Foreign workers, especially now, have a much tougher time getting a permit to work... the same boat you are in here in Singapore (and Malaysia, and Thailand, and most other Asian countries). Do you know that to hire a foreigner in Thailand I have to put up 2 million baht in order to obtain the work permit?
So, if not nationality, then citizenship... citizens first... I know of know country that does not have this policy to one degree or another.
