Retrenched Singaporean marginalized by foreigners during job interviews
Posted by temasektimes on June 16, 2012
My husband’s company is downsizing, so they have been asked to leave.
My husband was called in for 2 interviews which he went for. 1st one, the receptionist was a PRC, the guys interviewing him were from Taiwan based on my husband believe.
Secondly, HR is a filipino..He’s a senior in his field Logistics executive…
Many firms have called him but they are asking if he can lower his expectation..And he’s only asking $3k, a guy with over 20 yrs of experience..now hes in a delimmma.
Now firms don’t pay for experience anymore..got foreign trash..so they can hire them for half the price..its so saddening where Singapore is heading..we have a family to feed.
I work freelance, we have a pair of twins which we had through fertilty treatment..we have maid to help out..hv to pay levy for her..there are so many problems I have with the ruling party..many things are just not right…
Even his current company his colleagues are from the Philippines and Myanmar..I understand we need foreigners working but its just too much…
