.... please release data and stats to tell the citizens how many jobs advertised on Jobs Bank  during the "mandatory" period by employers actually went to local Singaporeans.

And how many went to "FTs"

If you cannot do something so fundamentally simple, all else is just lip-service  >:(

 Job bank is a joke, especially since the mandatory listing period is so short.

No matter how lowly paid a job is, there will always be a local who is willing to try out. Problem is that a lot of employers are so used to s pass holders pay that they are unwilling to pay a little more for a local...

"It's really very real,” said 32-year-old Smith Leong, who runs a start-up.

This is the funniest piece of news I've read here so far!  They get a bunch of people pretending to be job seekers or employers to do some role-play nonsense to strengthen job market information?!?!

IT'S REALLY VERY REAL!   ;D ;D ;D
