“While there is a quota for foreigners to deter ethnic enclaves in public housing, there is none to prevent high-ranking foreign bosses from preferring their fellow citizens over Singaporeans, which results in foreign colonies forming within organisations. When an Indian Singaporean friend of mine answered a job interview for a vacancy in an MNC recently, she was the only Singaporean. The other interviewees were Indian nationals. When she went into the interview room, she understood the reason. Two of the three directors were Indian nationals who dominated the interview process. She had a sinking feeling that she would not clinch the job and she was right. Ironically, when she finally landed a job, the employer was (also) an Indian national. Her team was dominated by Indian nationals, which made her feel out of place despite working in Singapore.”

    My mum has been looking for work since 2009. She has more than 15 years administrative and supervisory experience and has gone for skills training, yet she cannot even get an interview. She quit before to look after her parents who were ill. Now being punished for it by employers/govt. So far she has probably applied for 200-300 jobs (incl. to stat boards/govt) , yet zero invites to interview and the the few responses she had stated that she is past their age requirement or "does not fit" the job (when its clearly a admin job). Govt does nothing to help singaporeans like her. She is so angry she won't vote for PAP this election. Many of my relatives (all baby boomer generation) are also in the same position and are angry with PAP. Govt needs to legislate work rights for people over 45 years old. Or risk losing their votes. I think I will migrate when I'm in my 40s la, or cannot find work in SG after 45. How to save money for old age and medical bills if no job?
