    PH eyes labor deal with Singapore during Duterte visit


    RG Cruz, ABS-CBN News


    Posted at Dec 14 2016 01:31 PM

    The Philippine government is hoping to open talks about a possible labor deal with Singapore when President Rodrigo Duterte visits the Southeast Asian nation on Thursday.

    Philippine Ambassador to Singapore Antonio Morales said there is no existing bilateral labor agreement between the two countries despite 180,000 Filipinos working and living in the island nation.

    "Perhaps a possibility of this thing will be explored and by and large I think it will be a general discussion of the situation of workers," the official said at a press briefing Wednesday.

    Duterte is expected to arrive in Singapore for a state visit on Thursday, where he will discuss the welfare of Filipinos with Singaporean leaders, among other things.

    Although there are "no pressing labor and immigration issues" concerning Filipino workers in Singapore, Morales said there are still cases of abuse among household service workers.

    He said there are more than 70,000 household workers in the Southeast Asian country but that the reported abuses are "very minimal" and won't even reach 1 percent.

    The envoy said another concern Filipinos have is the slowdown in the world economy, which may result in the cutting down of manpower.

    "This is a concern of countrymen especially those working in the oil and gas industry but fortunately with upswing of oil prices this will be minimized," he said.

    Given these concerns, Morales said a bilateral labor agreement can only be good for Filipino workers in the city state.

    “We believe that a bilateral labor agreement will institutionalize our cooperation in promoting the welfare of our countrymen," he said.

    Singapore is one of the top OFW destinations around the world, making it a major source of remittances. In fact, Morales said it probably ranks second in Asia after Hong Kong and within the top eight worldwide.

    Of the 180,000 Filipinos in Singapore, around 60 percent are executives and skilled workers while 40 percent are household service workers, he said.
    Morales said interest from the Filipino community in Singapore is high, especially since Duterte won heavily there in the last elections. He said the President garnered 80 percent of total votes cast in Singapore.

    "He’s really very popular and our countrymen in Singapore really supported him during the elections and continue to support his leadership and vision for the country," he said.

    The ambassador said they expect around 7,000 Filipinos to attend the meeting with Duterte on Friday.

    Aside from labor concerns, Morales said illegal drugs may also be covered during Duterte's talks with the Singapore government.

    "I think that could be covered because Singapore has a strict policy against illegal drugs and has a good record in prosecuting drug traffickers and drug users and as a hub. It has also experience in controlling the flow of illegal drugs but of course the circumstances of our two countries differ," he said.

    The ambassador said there are a few Filipinos in jail in Singapore for drug offenses but that none of them are facing the death penalty.

    With so many Filipinos, Indians, PRC Chinese, ...., etc, etc working in Spore, it is no wonder that we are having so many problems with things breaking down.

    I'm from the time of LKY & back then we had higher standards, no such thing as fake paper qualifications .

    180,000 fucking roaches in Singapore.

    No wonder Singapore is now the Sick Man of Asia with locals underemployed and unemployed while filthy foreigners are taking up the white collar jobs.

    Fag Loong's fucking mismanagement, this son of bitch should be struck by lightning right in her cunt!

    I hope that the number will increase to 200,000 Pinoy executives in the next 5 years. Pinoys, Ah Tiongs and Ah Nehs are the people who can make Zikapore great again.

    Duterte is here to ensure that more Pinoys can come here to take up jobs. Duterte would want a similar deal that sinkapore has with India. If Sinkapore doesn't give, then every sinkee that steps into Pinoyland could be a casualty of Duterte's war on drugs.

    Local PMEs don't have it easy
    Published on May 31, 2014 1:22 AM
    I REFER to the report ("MPs want more protection, support for local PMEs" ; Tuesday)
    When I was the general manager of a local IT company and, subsequently, a financial controller for a Dutch multinational corporation, I preferred hiring foreign mid-level staff for the following reasons:
    - The company did not need to pay CPF contributions for them;
    - Their salary expectations were lower than Singaporeans'; and
    - Their skill sets and experiences were on a par with those of Singaporeans.
    The total cost differential between local and foreign professionals, managers and executives (PMEs) was 20 to 40 per cent.
    An Asian foreign employee with a degree and work experience can easily afford a city apartment and family sedan in his home country if he makes $200,000 during his stint here.
    In Singapore, $200,000 would allow a Singaporean with the same qualifications to buy only a three-room HDB flat in outlying regions like Woodlands or Jurong. A family car would set him back by $120,000.
    An Asian foreigner's cost of living back home is so much lower than ours. Hence, he is more willing to work for $3,000 to $5,000 a month. But a Singaporean graduate earning $4,000 a month will be trying to keep up with inflation.
    It does not make sense that a foreign PME working here has a bright future, while his Singaporean counterparts are struggling with their living expenses, unless they are in strong sectors like banking and health care, where pay is high.
    A levy is imposed when one hires a maid, but there is no such tax for hiring foreign PMEs. No wonder foreign PMEs were replacing local ones at an increasing rate until tighter restrictions were imposed last year.
    At the moment, the local PME retrenchment rate is still high as employers are hiring foreigners for the cost savings.
    Over the medium to long term, this will weaken Singapore's economy as local PMEs will become structurally unemployed as they lose their skills and employability.

    I still hold the belief that the only pinoys we should allow in are maids, bar singers and hookers.
