EP / PR rejected.... Guy and family back to Manila....

Postby Barnsley » Mon, 30 Sep 2013 4:02 pm

Read in the Online ST that a filipino guy had his new EP application rejected when trying to change jobs and also had his PR rejected....

There must be hundreds of these cases every year so was surprised to see one in the news. It would appear that the Govt/media is starting the campaign showing its tough stand on FT's is working already.

So TWO employers are now up shit creek without an employee? They should both sack every damn sinky, pack up and move their operations overseas and report that in the bloody ST!

I am trying to find the rationale behind publishing such a useless article... I guess Barnsley is right. There are also no details as to his position or potential salary. But with two kids, I hope he earned well ;)

That was what I was thinking too. Why feature this when they could have featured on why employers here are having hard time like local applicants? I think the latter would have driven the nail through.

It's all a con job and a smoke screen.

It has the potential also to backfire, hurting an entire family so the reasoning has to be utterly sound but unfortunately the report is half baked at best.

Is there a case to ask if there is humanity left?
