Wp is a pass for unskilled foreigner who wish to work in singapore. As long as your company have enough quote to hire a foreigner, normally the wp will be approved.

Like so many chefs in restaurants have degree in gastronomy... if they are giving funny reasons I would suspect of some other reason.

Right but maybe they're on EP, not WP. I think what the boss is alluding to is that he maybe be overqualified for WP salary and it will look like he's trying to undercut.
