Can we rely on PAP to look after Singaporeans workers?
Can we rely on PAP to look after Singaporeans workers?

Many Singaporeans who voted for opposition in the recent General Election 2011 felt justified today that they were right in not relying on PAP to look after Singaporeans workers, that it is time to wake PAP up.

Had it been not for the the brave Singaporeans who voted for the opposition to send a strong signal to wake up PAP, today 1 Nov 2011, we would not have a Straits Times headline "Don't discriminate Singaporeans" on the main front page in bold. Straits Times reported increasing cases of discrimination against Singaporeans workers and of cases whereby HR manager of a company of one nationality recruits only their own kind. That Ministry of Manpower has to step in to send a strong signal to employers not to discriminate against Singaporeans.

This is indeed very sad that our Singapore has become a place whereby Singaporeans workers are being discriminated in own country and where Singapore has been governed by PAP for many years and only after a vote swing, PAP government worked harder than before and digged out such cases of discriminations after years of complaints by many Singaporeans and thereby creating an impression that perhaps PAP can be relied upon to look after Singaporeans only after voters have to send a strong signal to wake them up otherwise if voters vote with increasing margins to PAP, possibly things would remain the same as before and everything looks to be alright when it is not so.

The other obvious thing is NTUC previously the last 5 years appears to be not as vocal as now to protect Singaporeans. It appears that the magic of voters swing against PAP is working its magic of waking up NTUC too. Thus it is not always bad to vote against PAP, it thus has its benefits too.

One important lesson, voters should learn from this is that we cannot rely on PAP to look after Singaporeans workers, we have to rely on ourselves, no longer we can rely on PAP or NTUC or trust them to do a good job; there is really no need for voters to vote against PAP or NTUC Chief Lim Swee Say if they are doing a good job the last 5 years, logical reasoning by voters?
