S’pore jittery as foreign workers continue to feel okay, signalling another riot might break out

Posted on 08 December 2014

Look what happened last year when they felt okay.


Singaporeans from all walks of life who are underhappy have expressed their concerns that foreign workers in Singapore have been feeling okay the past 12 months and this does not bode well as it might inevitably lead to another riot to happen in the city-state.

This after it was revealed in a recent manpower survey that nine in 10 foreign workers are generally satisfied with working in Singapore, which proves once and for all that there is no such thing as unhappiness in this country.

Singaporeans’ main concern stems from the fact that foreign workers who also felt okay in 2013 ended up on the streets causing the Little India riot to break out on Dec. 8, 2013.

Singaporeans who watched the footage of the riot after it happened agreed with the government’s analysis that the foreign workers who set things on fire and threw rocks on the streets were doing so only because they were generally happy with their jobs, working conditions and their overall lot in life.

One Singaporean, Pah Kah Luan, said: “As the foreign workers have continued to feel okay in Singapore, it is a sign that they might be ready to throw rocks and set things on fire again.”

“Feeling okay has been the leading cause of riots in Singapore and as they have felt the same way throughout the past year, there is no doubt we are due for another one soon.”
