Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing, a.k.a. Kee Chiu, revealed that between 2015 to 2018, about 50,000 jobs went to Singaporeans and more than 9,000 went to permanent residents (PRs).
Pritam Singh raised the question of the breakdown of jobs between Singaporeans and PRs in the parliament about two weeks ago. Kee Chiu answered Pritam's question with another question - "What is the point behind the question?" and everything went unanswered back then. Kee Chiu was probably pressured by Pritam and the netters who questioned the ability of our ministers and released the information out.
This obviously shows that our oppositions are helping us by pressuring the current Government by asking the right questions. For all the talk from PAP about how our oppositions are untrustworthy, it seems like they are doing more good than bad.
Without the opposition, the PAP will probably continue sitting on their high horses. Thinking that they are the best and can do no wrong. With the upcoming General Elections, we should seriously consider voting in more opposition voices. So as to achieve a better Singapore for our future and kids.
