Now there's article mentions about a ruling barring native males from Sabah from working in Singapore. Direct hit?

Well, as SMS stated, no body is safe. So, I take the result from the link literally :-|

FYI it is a 12hrs 6-day a wk from 10am-10pm. Lunch is after 2pm. What was posted on top is the job scope beside dish washing. With an auto washing machine there may manual washing required as well cause not everything can be autowashed successfully.

The article is quite slanted, and funnily enough doesn't mention exactly what these males allegedly did or how many of them did it.

well .. the stories of 'unable to find cleaners' etc. .. are, in my view, could be directly due to the govt's efforts of upgrading the staff

Personally, I can count a dozen or so bartenders and waiters/waitresses, who took up the 'upgrading' programs and are now working in office jobs, for lesser salary, but a 9-5 job !!!

PS; the above news of Douglas complaining of lack of cleaners was in the Today paper as well ..

Yes, I'm aware of it too. Let's see if other places will follow the same method, or not. Still, I have a gut feeling that only PRs will apply for it :P

Thats true for anything and anywhere in the world, there are no guarantees anywhere on anything. Just relax man and enjoy your time as long as the going is good. But yeah dont overleverage and dont fall too much in love with this country or make any sort of bonds, it will only hurt you if you have to leave. Its like a DR(disaster recovery) tests that my company has. We are always prepared for emergencies. ;)

Exactly ;) Thats why most people are only temporary PRs. Becoming permanent means you start getting into all sort of commitments and bonds and then if things are not in your control, you have no choice but suck thumb.

If its your own country then yes, you have no choice, good or bad, its your fate. But why would you want to take crap from another country.
