Video on the Income Gap...



This video about the income gap was released late last year and has gone viral. It shows how bad the income gap is in the USA by taking the ratio of the wealth and income of the top and comparing it with the bottom.

If you find it shocking how bad the income gap in USA has become, you should be aware that there is only one developed country worse than the USA when you measure income gap as a ratio of the income of those on top vs those at the bottom. That country is Singapore.

I think the foreign hiring managers want to create new legacy for Singaporeans PMETs: drive taxis and work as security guards.

How many running dogs are there out there who are actively assisting the foreign PMETs in screwing fellow Singaporeans?

You want best foreign hiring managers, you get this type lah, who screw Sinkies by hiring their own kind.

You want best government, you get PAP lah, where Sinkies got screwed but have to serve NS.

You want best opposition, you get WP lah, who said they are not ready and PAP is competent.

But not all Singaporeans are PAPigs.

There are many Singaporeans that are against PAPig values.

We need a 2 political party system in Singapore.
Just like in USA.

The Republican Party in USA.
Like PAPig Party in Singapore.
Represent economic pig values.

Democratic Party in USA represent universal human values like truth, justice and equality.
Singaporeans need to support and vote for such a political party in Singapore.
To represent Singaporeans who believe in universal human values.

The lower sector of pay is pressure by the foreigners they are from cheaper third world and out of jobs to come to Singapore, they borrow to come and desparate for jobs. If their high pay is lower to the level of the Norway, Switzerland and New Zealand ministers' pay, they had no incentives to massive import foreigners, they are likely to concentrate on locals, why are all other countries don't import so much foreigners to pressurize the local pays, what do you think?

Each of the Nordic countries has taken a slightly different path, but each has impressive achievements of growth with equity. A standard measure of performance is the United Nations Development Programme’s inequality-adjusted Human Development Index, which is less a measure of economic output than it is of human well-being. For each country, it looks at citizens’ income, education and health, and makes an adjustment for how access to these are distributed among the population. The Northern European countries (Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway) stand towards the top.

If they pay is high they need more foreign workers to support their pay, all the local workers know they can't complete with foreign workers, because they come from third countries, their countries back there is much lower cost and can work longer, sent money back to buy bangalow, so to lower their pay to the range of $150k is reasons most advanced countries pay minister is around that range, we are not even talking about foreigner complete with locals in their salaries if they compare the pay of the third world countries ministers pay, we are talking about normalise their pay so that they put more effort in developing the local which is fair enough?

Most advanced countries with their ministers' pay around $150K, because their ministers don't come to serve because of pay, a reasonable amount of pay is quite enough, they don't look for outside cheap foreigners for jobs to maximise the profits to pay themselves. Which is early in the 60s or 70s Singapore Ministers pay is not very high, many come forward to serve with a heart to improve the lots of Singapore, at that time Singapore have many riots and issues to content with?

So as to depress or take away locals jobs, numerous advanced countries their ministers is mindful of local losing their jobs to cheaper foreigners and causes serious problems and poverty, so strict criteria to admit foreigners to jobs. Their standard of living is high because of more space and not overcrowding, most of their workers don't need to worry their job taken away by foreigners, most of the jobs were taken by local which shunned by foreigners because the pay is resonably good, we are not talking of paying them ministers level of pays, so their birthrate are high, with free tertiary educations, and their retrench benefits are good, with good work life balance, their health care are heavily subsidise and their old age can retire in comfort, not like Singapore many old age got to be cleaners, pick cans & cardboard to eke out a living?

$ingap0re boosting to foreigners, that singapore has among the highest GNP best airport, best seaport etc, behind all these success the heavy price of its citizen got to pay, one wonder how it calculate it, maybe they took all the ministers average income, which is ten time of the advanced nations ministers income, the income to calculate it.

Behind this figure you see many low income workers maybe up to 100,000 or more, many can't get out of their poverty cycle and stay in one room rented HDB flats, their income below $1000 or around $800, many of the usually old retrenched and sick, can't find a job work in part time agents in properties and insurances, some are cleaners, some on social welfare, some collect cardboard, sell tissues papers, some collect cans, some sleep in the street which they came out late at night or beach at night after losting their houses, most of them their job likely to be taken by cheaper foreigners, unable find a job some borrow to survive you see the uniquely singapore - owe money pay money sign (O$P$) with beautiful artworks splash beside it?

And broken families, low birthrate causes by heavy influx of foreigners, no retirement for some work until they died? And they going to increase the population to aggravate it, instead of concentrating on improving the local population?

Many credit companies sprang up quickly because of the casinos or jobs lost to cheaper foreigners, Singapore kept present it good side to the foreigners, if they go to Orchard road at midnight they will see the real Singapore. Singapore is in heavy shortage of cheap one room rental flats need at least 60K, if more cheap foreign workers and immigrants to take over Singaporean jobs, more of these will likely to be like the cages like which Hong Kongers who lost their jobs living in?

Now more and more younger populations are aware of Singaporean facing, with most of them had hand held internet devices, gone are the days many are less educated and rely on the govt own MSN?

With recent PE Elections from plus 55 percent dropped to 43 percents is the strongest messages, and the huge turnout in the recent Hong Lim Park possible up to 7K, due to some left earlier because of rain and not enough space to stand, that Singapore is too overcrowded and going to serious uncharted water with no resources at all, yet pay its ministers 10 ten times the equivalent amount of the some advanced countries nations ministers pay? More things need to changed in the future?

Our KPI is whether Singaporeans do well.

I'm so distrustful of the PAPigs, I'll probably vote Opposition anyway.
The only permanent way ensure that Singaporeans do well is to vote in a large numeber of Opposition MPs.

Now they know they are overpaid were the causes of needing all these indirect taxes, like levies, COE, ERP, GST, levies, high rental, casinos revenues, CPF locked up scheme, handout schemes$$$$, which need taxes to pay for it etc,?

Slowly the ministerw pay should people reduce by themselves after they realise they were overpaid, which might feel ashame compare to the bottom 20 percents living from hand to mouth, which some are in debted, with many credit companies willing to help them?

So that it is reasonable to serve the country, $150,000 in a public office is not unreasonable, mind you this is a public office not a private office, the bottom 20 percent had been sacrifying to pay them why not now they realise their pay is in the range many time about the advanced minister pays, take actions to slowly reduce so that the bottom can enjoy better pay and less need for cheap foreign workers and develop the local and home grown companies long term planning?

It is likely they feel it is a burden to have such scheme which might overtax the public and raise prices? Now the likely to feel they need to match or follow the pay of advanced minister, as our first generation leaders served with passions and reasonable pay, quite well off compare to the bottom 20 percent which had negative growth due to inflations?

Now almost a month had passed without any posts from Lucky. And without even announcing he will not post anymore. This is quite unusual of him or bloggers in general.

Something must have happened to him.

Or he realise his time could be better used.

To pay GST on your electricity, water and basic healthcare is wrong. It's just wrong to do this to what basic human beings need to survive. A society that does this is an uncaring society. What do you ask your men to serve NS and reservist and you tell them to pay GST on their hospital or clinic bills for medicine? You make demands as a government to your men to serve NS but you can't even spare a thought for them to even want to charge GST on their healtcare bills and their water and electricity bill? Why have we become so stupid to allow this government free way to abuse our live bit by bit? The more we vote for PAP, the more machine-like our lives become, the more stressful it becomes, the more insecure it becomes, the more intensely competitive our children's lives will be and ours,...it's time to bring in more alternative voices to fight for our rights. Because our government is more interested in making casino money and selling banana thoughts and statistics to us in their Straits (State) Times.

5 long years, is a very long time to wait. That's why the wise 39.9% have warned many times to vote wisely. They go on their knees begging and pleading to those daft 60%. Did the daft 60% listen and heed the advice ??? If they did, we won't be in such a messed, tio bo ???

And so to speak, blame who ??? PAP or the Daft 60%, or both ??? Every GEs they voted for PAP. Then-after, they KPKB daily non-stop till the next GE. And when GE finally come, they would still voted for the PAP.

So now then you'll know why the old fooled called this 60% blokes, "DAFT !!!". The only words in which can be accepted and trusted, that came out from the old fooled mouth.

PS - The "Doomsday", that the wise 39.9% have been talking and warning about ??? Enjoyyyy !!!!!

Anonymous said...

It is not the daft 60% anymore but the 43% and the 17%.

43% are very happy and satisfied under PAP, no matter how bad PAP has become. This is because the are smart and rich. That's why even in a by-election, they will vote PAP even though they know PAP will not be voted out.

The other 57% (100-43) are not happy and satisfied, so they did not vote PAP in a by election.

However, in a General Election, like Low Thia Khiang said, about 17% are very scared they accidentally vote PAP out because WP not ready.

That's how the at least 60% (43+17) came about every election no matter how bad PAP screwed even the majority 57% (100-43%) Sinkies.

Anonymous said...

Oh I see. So now it is only the 17%, despite being screwed badly, that still voted PAP to make the big difference of 93% seats for PAP and 7% seats for WP every election.

But actually 7% WP make any difference in Parliament or not? If not, what's the point (WP)? Might as well be 100% seats for PAP, tio bo?

I'm a little bit confused about who voted "Yes" and "No" in the Population White Paper.
So let me write this down so people can correct me if I am wrong:

There are 87 MPs;
9 NMPs;
and 3 NCMPs in parliament.

NMP who Abstained
-------------------
1.Eugene Tan, NMP

NMP who did not show up for work & vote (Absent)
-----------------------------------------------------------
2.Tan Su Shan, NMP

NMP who voted YES
------------------
3.Nicholas Fang,
4.Mary Liew,
5.Ramy Dhinakaran
6.Teo Siong Seng.

NMP who voted NO
----------------
7.Janice Koh,
8.Faizah Jamal and
9.Laurence Lien

PAP MPs who did not show up for work & vote (Absent)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
10.Dr Chia Shi Lu
11.Lee Kuan Yew
12.Raymond Lim Siang Keat
13.Alvin Yeo

PAP MPs who were in Parliament but were missing-in-action when vote was taken
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
14. Inderjit Singh
15. Indranee Rajah
16. Ne Eng Hen

NCMPs (100% voted NO)
-----------------------------------
17. Gerald Giam
18. Yee Jenn Jong
19. Lina Loh

Workers’ Party elected MPs (all voted NO)
---------------------------------------------
20. Low Thia Khiang
21. Sylvia Lim
22. Chen Show Mao
23. Muhamad Faisal Manap
24. Pritam Singh
25. Png Eng Huat
26. Lee Li Lian

This leaves (99-26=73) remaining MPs (All PAP)
---------------------------------------------------------------
So all the remaining 73 PAP MPs voted “YES”.

Just thought we should know who might be the Traitors, Patriots and Cowards.

by your rationale, anything qualifies as smart as long as you make money. that is your axiom.

making lots of money = smart

one can be overqualified for a job like a rocket scientist and not getting the job as a engineer = not making money = not smart at all

a hawker making a lot of money by selling char kway teow = smarter than a fresh graduate not earning as much

a younger teller being employed and making money is smarter than a experienced PMET in his forties and may have been retrenched and not making money

But one suspects, from witnessing the relentless demands for more pay, protected jobs, cheaper housing and Certificates of Entitlement and freebies of all kinds, that the current debate is fuelled more by a sense of entitlement than who we are as Singaporeans.Identity is a cover to justify these unearned “needs”. The Government is no saint, but the voters are not angels, either. In short, we are in the early stage of a political maelstrom, not an anthropological discussion.It does not help that voters feel empowered while Members of Parliament from the ruling party are making socialist proposals that are usually the preserve of the Opposition.

PAP is already making majority 57% not happy and not satisfied due to the so called lack of 'unearned "needs", as Anon 9/4/13 13:25 put it.

Only 43% are smart to be able to "earn" their needs and wants and happy with PAP. So they voted PAP.

And 17% of the 57%, although lacking in "unearned needs" under PAP, are very scared things will even be worse if PAP is voted out of power.

As a result PAP can still get 60%(43%+17%) majority votes to remain in power despite not fulfiling the "unearned needs" of even majority 57%.

Happily for PAP, this will remain status quo till 2016 and beyond.

Now Singapore can't go back to the olden days base on cheaper then others and invite cheap foreign workers intensive industries. Now very much depend of service sector, like tourism to drive the economy. With our high cost then other countries with levies, COE, ERP, GST, Rental and indirect taxes etc.?

If Singapore continue to depend of cheaper then others lots of PMET will be out of job and their children suffer and resulting in broken families and divorces?

Singapore with it high cost of doing business, with high ministers pay, COE, GST, ERP, Levies and other indirect taxes got to concentrate in developing it SME, pump more money in developing it innovations, technologies and branding, which is crucial to it survival and the older workers, which can't complete with cheaper foreign workers came from the lower cost countries, leaving them out of jobs and depressed pay?

Having casinos, importing lots of foreign talents and their money is the fastest, surest and mostest way to get money and grow GDP.

With this method, the only problem is PAP may get voted out, but PAP need only 17% suffering Sinkies to vote for them to get at least 93% seats every election.

Please do not pressure Lucky anymore.
It is understandable for his readers to be concerned.
However, as he has chosen to remain private and quiet despite the calls here for him and or his admin to leave message to keep his followers informed, let us respect his wish.

Scared of the many cockroaches coming to his blog? And also too kind hearted to kill them?

Lucky Tan should not allow anon postings, just like the 5% TKL. After 5% TKL did that, almost no comments to his every posting.

Or better still "comments off" for his blog. Like what some other bloggers do.

Then those cockroaches can still read but cannot shit on his blog.

They promised Swiss standard of living. Now, as each day passes, airplane loads of unfamiliar faces are flown in to this island. It is Squeeze standard of living not Swiss. And 60.1% Singaporeans are still fast asleep and skeptical about the 40% Singaporeans who have travelled and woken up to the fact that this government is short-changing its own people and not taking care to improve the quality of its people's lives. In security, we demand the young man to defend this land but we don't provide these soldiers with psychological defence. These NS men don't have CPF, universal healtcare, minimum wage, national pension, affordable HDB flats unlike many in the other developed countries whose young men don't even serve NS! Yet, the Singaporeans are still complying without agreeing. At the end of the day, they are unhappy, frustrated and now they are slowly becoming bitter with the Papa Anak Party or some day, Poor Also Pay Party. More sacrifices need to be made to create positive change in this country! ANd it starts by putting in more alternative voices to probe the incumbent who has clearly lost its way when it said it will do some serious soul-searching. They can say what they want but I don't for once believe singaporeans buy what they say today. But if the singaporean is not awake, they will be replaced with New citizens who will form the majority.

Many Singaporeans can't get permament jobs that pay decent wages to support a hdb monthy housing loans and a family. Yet, the Straits Times paints a completely different picture to pull wool over singaporeans' eyes that there are plenty of jobs available in this island. Singaporeans who read The States Times are reading a wrong literature.
