You have a 50% dependency ratio. (Look it up on the MOM site). MOM will find all kinds of reasons to bounce them. Especially on renewals (I had 4 out of 5 bounced last week). Depends also on the sector in the service industry as well. If in the Hospitality industry, it seems a wee bit easier than ours, but they are changing the goal posts almost weekly now, so it's really hard to tell what their current mindset is. :(

Gotta agree .. ever since the govt found out that most WP are billed like 3,000 but the end recipient gets less than 1,000 mostly .. and at 3,000, or even 2,000 enough singaporeans are ready to take up the job ..

The service industry - bars especially, have seen WP being trimmed .. and the S pass renewals are going haywire.. especially for those with the instant diplimas .. HRM Grads .. et al, who end up doing basic waitressing jobs ..

At the risk of earning the wrath of the coffee shop owners / service industry operators .. I am not gonna suggest the 'methods' they overcome such restrictions .. :D :D

You can possibly work it out .. if you make friends with the staff ..

And, it is not PRCs who are in the service industry .. a lot from other ASEAN countries possibly outnumber the PRCs

i asked one of the staff at a restaurant near bugis, told me it was a joint venture between local and china business. apparently my understanding , the relationship is the local applies the necessarily permits and the china businessman acts like an investor who will support the business with PRC workers. anyone can help with the exact procedures.

So you want someone to help you circumvent the law on this website? Won't do too much for our good name and credibility will it. If someone does, it will be summarily stomped on.
