    Lim swee say , you fucking chee bye , useless union chief

    • Zorro is Zero said

      Please add the word “chow” after “farking” and before “chee”…

      And “boh lampar” after “useless” and before “union”.

      That will sound just right..

      Thank you.

    • Hsien Liao La said

      lim sia sway has no credibility left. in many developed countries, wages for cashiers stand at around $10-$12 per hour. In singapore, Lim’s aim is to push down wages and let them stay at $900-1200 mark per month, the same levels as the early 1990s. how is singapore a developed country when the aim of the union chief is to continue to push down wages? fcuk u lim sia sway.

    Our NTUC is not looking after our own citizen, i urge all PRC citizen to consider carefully before applying for the job..living standard here is very high and you cant survivie with that kind of pay in Singapore..transportation, food and lodging will eat up all your pay..1 packet of cigarettes is $12 dollars = 60 rmb !

    • Lu Lu said

      They get free food fr the discarded section of NTUC. Surely will save lots of $

    • ST Foo said

      No worries, PRC girl, food & lodging provided. Otherwise can P/T earn other income.

    • Lu Lu sister said

      Wahh so good I can come to Singapore right away I shave my armpits and find some singapore man to sleep with kick the wife out and I can save even more money

      • blk691a said

        very clever girl, but i suggest the america and australia are better place , and the man
        are better lovers. Go as a tourist and settled down there, Salary also higher.

      • nightkids said

        You are this LuLu??

  3. Badass Ed said

    The answer is simple.

    There are no more “suitable” Singaporeans to be employed.

  4. Somethingwrongsomewhere said

    If Singaporean apply for the job, still have the $200 accomodation subsidy?

  5. alan said

    You think there will be singaporean who will treasure this job and stay for long even if we have any?
    look at the age range.

  6. Kelvin Kwek said

    They are suppressing market salary in Singapore by offering this kind of pay to the Chinese. The Chinese will take up the job coz its not easy and attractive to earn between RMB5-6K in China. But to the Singaporean, it’s not the “right salary” in our economic standard of living. No wonder the low-income is forever low-income, perpetually. Singaporean are not choosy, it’s the salary via-a-vis to the cost and standard of living. Want be 1st word but pay 3rd world or developing economy salary. Why are we subjecting our people in competing our standard of salary with these countries but yet wants to be 1st world in economy in standard. So, the highly paid are riding on the low income for their developed or 1st world standard of living. If the Singaporean can not live at 3rd world or developing economy standard of salary, they will “import” from the lower strata to achieve their agenda in political, social or economical aspects.

    YES. IM JOBLESS AND WANT TO APPLY. BUT IT’S FOR FORIEGNERS ONLY.

    • Ken Lee said

      go to ntuc outlet and walk in interview!
      there look for worker for quite some time already, or go sucess at CC. they did advertise this posts, but i do not know why, maybe think pay too low?

      • celinetay said

        But they don’t offer such good pay and benefits to singaporeans, only about $5 per hour, u count 44 hours per week , where got 1200? i would have joined if the pay above 1000.

  8. SGrean said

    Even now, NTUC already employs quite a number of PRC staff including supervisors and warehouse personnel. Their jobs are very easy to do and I believe we don’t need talents for those positions. And I’ve also heard stories that Singaporean promoters are often being bullied when working in NTUC. We have senior citizens willing to stand for long hours working as promoters and NTUC is saying there is no locals willing to work in NTUC as a full-time staff with benefits??

    Some NTUC supervisors look down on Singaporean promoters and sometimes will use harsh words to insult them. Some outlets do not even promoters to rest in their pantry during breaks. And worse, supervisors has the power to ‘sack’ a promoter if he/ she has something against the promoter, sometimes it might not even be work related. Then the poor auntie will be without work for the rest of the project. Is this how NTUC functions? Beautiful on the outside, but rotten on the inside.

    • omeprazolel said

      They want younger staff, between the age of 20 – 28 so the middle aged aunties and uncles who are slower will surely be bullied.

      Our younger generation at this age group is either in the army or in the university.
      And our younger generation more higly educated, of course don’t want to do this kind of job.

      So, they want to pay lower wages, younger staff, who want to work?
      Translate in hokkien: you ai pee, you ai chee, you ai tua liap nee, go where find?

      • SGrean said said

        The Singaporeans auntie promoters are bullied by fellow auntie/ uncle supervisors in NTUC. They don’t belong to the NTUC staff, but they are still Singaporeans trying to earn a decent living. Even so, the bullying and discrimination continues.

    Let me just add that a colleague of mine in NZ has been offered a childcare teacher job NTUC thorough long distance application. She will finish her part time degree in July and will be headed to Singapore to start her teaching career. Are there no teachers in Singapore that NTUC has to recruit from overseas, and even recruit so desperately without the need to even conduct a face to face interview?

  12. Jaded said

    Yup, this is called putting Singaporeans first… Pui!!

  13. Just another SGean said

    My mom worked for NTUC for 10yrs already. Yet she’s only drawing like $1100 pay now.

    Day light robbery!! NTUC chief, we are waiting for your explanation….What productivity are you talking about?

    • Cancer said

      Another note to add. the ad is asking for PRC applicants between 20 to 28 years. Why so young? Is it because they are more productive to produce babies?

  15. Horrified said

    Totally disgusted… That’s y alot of old aged sgporeans r jobless n have difficulties … And they want us to have more children to solve the lopsided problem … Make my kids suffer n have to fight with all these PRCs in future … I will send my kids away from Singapore … Totally disappointed ….

    Singapore so lazy…and want high pay with less work..

    Got Singaporean want to take the job which salary of 980-1250 ?

    • Genius SG said

      The thing is, can a Singaporean support his/ her family with a salary if 980-1250?

      • omeprazolel said

        that’s why lah…after deducting CPF, how to survive.
        Can feed only oneself, cannot feed the family.

        We are forced out of workforce.

        So how? how to settle this problem?

    Low Thia Kiang & Ah Huat soon to be Workers Party MP of Hougang, please use this in your campaign speech to let all your voters know that this is happening at NTUC & let PAP give your voters the wayang answer. Since Desmond Choo wants to address low wage issues, then this is an excellent example to rebut & throw mud in PAP’s face.

  33. Pacific Albatross said

    Now I know NTUC is hiring overseas.No wonder many Singpaorens,once retrenched,can’t find a proper job even they are just in their 40s .Our government-linked organisations could simply hire young foreigners,let alone private orgs.It’s good maths paying them low wage so that these orgs are able to make high profits.Are there any brains caring about we locals who need jobs to survive here.When we do not want to accept exceptionally low wage,somebody will say we need to improve productivity.Hey guys,if my pay is too low,I will still work for it,but I’ll try all means to make sure that I would only contribute the least.I will take every opportunity to “eat snake’and every night before bed,I’ll think of ways to ruin the operations of the company and I’ll pray for the firm to fail in busineess(hopefully closure)…..To me,my opportunity cost is low,my pay is low,anyway.Ha…ha….

        there are ways to get people into singapore, this is one of them, there may be syndicate who will do anything for money,
        singapore is so small, just a few hundred thousands of them and you can win over hougang. Money is no problem here.
        They the papa and anak ( malay for son) party is here to stay, slowly the whole of singapore is occupy by ferrari driven PRC
        who call hdb flat their home. Earn and earn and enjoy high worth life here. China can spare 6 millions of their citizens here.

  42. A Singaporean Abroad said

    I think the NTUC wants to hire these FT to be warehouse storeman because the FT accept cheaper wages than a local Singaporean? Pardon my ignorance as I have been living abroad for about 10 years and I do not know the current market wages. However, if my deduction is correct (i.e. they hire cos of cheaper wages) then my next question is has NTUC ever heard of the phrase “if you pay peanuts …”

    • Lois Lois said

      That’s why there’re many monkeys out there in the service line because they pay peanuts. And monkeys speak monkeys’ language and they don’t speak English. And this is so-called productivity because they speak another different language..hahaha.

  43. Leo said

    A union which does not take care of own citizens. NTUC is a big joke. Should all the citizens cancel the memberships and bycott NTUC? Anyway they are only keen in taking care of foreigners. Let the foreigners patronise them

    I worked at the NLB for 13 year. I was offered a golden handshake and an option to continue working for the library as an outsource staff. Outsource staff are being paid $24 per day. No benefits compared to working under NLB management where medical is also covered plus yearly bonus, performance bonus, night shift allowance etc) My take home pay under NLB was $900 (even after I worked for 13 years) I decided not to work for outsource company as the salary package was terrible. I was jobless for three years. During that time, I tried going to different companies, mostly retail outlets, to work as sales assistant. Most of them wanted people to be able to speak mandarin. Went to CDC and so on. They referred me to retail outlets too. I was interviewed but no response. I went to the NTUC supermarket opposite my house. They pasted job vacancy advertisement on their notice board. I applied for the position of sales assistant,( mainly to take care of arriving stock, arranging them on the shelves) I went to ask twice. Once around 2010 and 2011. But I was rejected. No reason given. It was a painful three years, no job, basically doing freelance jobs with no CPF or any job security. It was until I followed my younger sister shopping and we stumbled upon a job vacancy at a British (owned by an arab) retail outlet. I applied for the job, we exchanged some meaningful conversations and followed by an interview, I got a part time job as a food stacker. Similar type of job at the library but with a higher pay and opportunities for commussion plus medical benefits and staff discount. I am so disappointed with NTUC, they would not even consider me for anything. Considering that I live nearby, it was a good opportunity for me to work near my home. I am realistic as a low income worker. If I work nearby, it will at least offset transport fees to work. But NTUC did not want me at all. Not once but twice! I am glad to say that I am happy working for this company! It’s ok NTUC. Thank you for your bitter lesson.

      The power that we have is not to patronised such organisation. STOP buying anything from them ,

    • blk691a said

      true here, my niece a school leaver was not even considered, she is slim and willing to accept such pay. Without explanation, they just reject.

    lets go back to basics…..shop at our neighbourhood groceries shop….!!!

    Mr minister please address this issue openly with us citizen of singapore.

    WP this is the best issue to ask the electorate and voters of hougang….ask desmond choo to answer this issue….!!

  46. Dear all,

    We have seen the discussion on this and would like to kindly clarify our position.

    As one of the largest retailers in Singapore, it has always been a challenge hiring people for the service industry.

    As part of the labour movement, NTUC FairPrice’s recruitment policy has always been to hire Singaporeans first. This policy has enabled us to maintain a primarily local workforce. Currently, about 90 percent of our staff are Singaporeans or Permanent Residents. Over 80 percent of our total workforce are Singapore citizens.

    As we open more stores to serve our customers better, we also need more staff to fill all the vacancies. Besides advertising these vacancies in local dailies to hire Singaporeans and PRs, we have also worked with various agencies like Community Development Councils, the Women’s Development Secretariat,e2i, various polytechnics and institutes of technical education to name a few.

    Unfortunately, we have not been able to fill all the vacancies and, hence, need to seek alternative manpower resources in neighbouring countries such as China and Philippines.

    Currently, we have various vacancies such as Retail Assistants, Cashiers, Store keepers and Skilled Cutters, to fill across our branches island-wide and we welcome job-seekers to submit their applications for these vacancies to us at recruit@fairprice.com.sg or visit us at http://www.fairprice.com.sg – Careers for more details.

    Thank you.

    • Kelvin Kwek said

      The problem of having difficulties; the pay of $900-$1200 is not decent enough for a local considering the cost of living, let’s not talk about standard of living. To the foreigners, considering their economic development, it’s a lot of money and attractive. Please don’t set the wage from developing economies. Forever, the wages will not go up! It’s about having the correct pay which will attract people willing to take on it. In Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, we were served by natives. Aren’t these country Developed economy? Yes, and they pay developed economy standard of salary. NTUC, as a cooperative or social enterprise, you have a role UN leading the pay restructuring of the nations. Otherwise, private enterprise will not take to the labour moment ethos of salary improvement for the country notwithstanding that we have have a standard and. Oat of living which is out of syn with the kind of pay that is being suppressed under the pretext of productivity.

    • Benny Quek said

      Well said,NTUC.I would very much like to know the range of salary you are paying locals.If you are paying that sort of salary sufficient only for retirees or housewives working for fun/pocket money,you might be innoocent.How about for those ,particularly the age range you mentioned in the China ad,who need to earn a decent income to sustain life of themselves and their family’s?You jolly well know that in Singapore,this level of salary is barely enough for survival.You are no different from those firms which put ads on hiring staff,offering a ridiculous salary,and the ad could appear for years and finally claimed that they were not able to recruit locals.Don’t beat around the bush by saying that your offer is competitive.Could it be that nobody is being reasonale and fair?You should take the lead,for the sake of low-pay workers,please.This is simply the culture here.The govenment seems to have done a lot for Singapore,but why is our happiness index so low.What is wrong is that the satatistics is good but we do not feel/experience it.Finally,congrat that you’ve succeeded in another cost cutting endeavour!

    • Disgusted said

      What about giving our yellow ribbon Singaporeans who need a job? What ever figures you ppl give us are all not verified. When there is no transparency , do you think we will believe u? Do u know y I hate to go Giant supermarket? Because its infested w PRCs! They r slow , lazy n have very bad service attitude. Y I patronize NTUC n Cold Storage is because I am being served only by local Singaporeans… But sad to say I started to spot PRCs in various outlets. It’s just depressing knowing that u r not only a supermarket but formed because of a working union for fellow Singaporeans . Now not only you have chosen to give away the jobs to PRCs n yes specifically PRCs, y not Thai? Y not Vietnamese? Y only PRCs? You have become a unethical company which is exploiting these lower class PRCs thinking they are cheap labour. Seriously to survive with $980 per mth? How? Do u provide meals? Lodging? Meaning u expect these ppl to work for u n solely work for u cos they have no money to go out for some enjoyment after work. You as a union has displayed the worst example to all companies in Singapore and all other countries all over the world!

    • atuk said

      Okay Okay so that’s your position ….. fair enough .

      Lets put it in my perspective , If I am the boss in NTUC , I would prefer to change all my management team and get FT thus saving more money for NTUC. But at what cost….??? Where is your social responsibilities???? Its because you are not the one being put to retire early and you all still earning BIG MONEY…!!! That’s what I call GREED !!! When you all are not thinking RIGHT.

      Look at all out PMET’s , they are out of JOB and have families to feed on…..!!! Think hard but please do not think SMART coz maybe tomorrow you will have another breakdown…..SMRT….!!!

      Just look how much is being paid to SMRT CEO…..wei friend…..thats peanut rite but she is enjoying her semi retirement life…..!!! No family to think of and no worries with all the money she earn…hard earned money lei….wat da fug!!!!

    • Darren Png said

      NTUC I dont think you tried that hard. Why you making so much profits even though you are coop? Why you are paying the aunties and uncles so little money you trying to match with Mac Donalds? SO since you dont have to be profitable why dont you offer a better salary so that the poor uncles and aunties cna see it is worth their while to come to work each day as it is enough to cover their expenses.

  55. Lois Ong said

    Did anyone know out of the over 60% votes from last year election, how many percentage were made up of PRCs and other minority foreigners of new citizens? In my guess, It’s probably slightly over 50% of true Singaporeans. If this assumption is right, then the ruling party would have left lesser votes from true Singaporeans comes 2016. However, this may not be the case, because by then more new citizens (especially from PRC) will be added into our national count. At that time, even if less than 50% of Singaporeans vote for the PAP, the PAP will still win because of new citizens who will form the majority of the votes for them. Any thoughts on this? Hence, we true blue Singaporeans must be united and vote for the right party who take care of us first comes 2016. I wouldn’t specific who but it’s upto you to think and judge. For how many years we’ve been suffering in silent especially the matured group of populations who lost their jobs and never able to return to the workforce because of bias recruitment by majority employers. I’m one of them for your information.

Not only that one of the China Supervisor had the cheek to chide-off a foreign tourist who was watching a play at the Marina Bay Sands theatre. This western lady needed a baby room to change her baby’s diaper but the baby changing room was full with toilet rolls so she had to ask the China cleaner supervisor to clear the room for her to use. Guess what, the China supervisor chided her in a very loud voice that she doesn’t understand English and asked the western tourist to speak in Chinese. What a real joke??? Is this called productivity as termed by PAP???

    Also, do you know why China young girls (or even the old ugly China women) can survive in Singapore at a pay of less than $1000? That’s because many of them find a man who can sleep with them and help to pay every expenses for them and of course, their pay is kept full in the bank every month. Not only that, they can afford to wear expensive jewelery and carry branded stuff because they got through sleeping…hahaha. This has been a common story amongst many establishments that have most PRCs workers…hahaha.

TOP and middle management job that our children needs is , and will be more critcial !!!
