S’poreans agree youths can learn from foreign workers, while MPs & ministers work too hard

Posted on 15 May 2016

Of course, naturally.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe there is a need for double standards in society, or else, everyone will be equally worse off, are nodding their heads in agreement.

This after they said they believe Singaporean youths can learn from the hardworking ethics of foreign workers as they read about this point of view from Today newspaper:

S’pore’s youth can learn from work ethic of foreign workers (May 14, 2016)



Locals then read The Straits Times that they should not expect too much from members of parliament and ministers as they are working too hard, and perhaps, even harder than the foreign workers mentioned in Today newspaper:

Do we expect too much of our ministers and MPs? (May 15, 2016)


One Singaporean, Jiak Leow Bee, said: “There is no doubt in my mind ministers and MPs work way harder than the manual foreign workers doing menial chores day in, day out under the hot sun, earning S$15 a day.”

“Anyway, in Singapore, only youths need to learn from the work ethics of foreign workers because I read about it in the mainstream newspaper.”

“MPs and ministers can afford to take more time off because they are special and different and not youths, so there is no need to learn any hardworking ethics.”
