    Too many Singaporeans are suffering from chronic diseases which make them more suited to be hospital patients rather than active and employable PMETs. The days of the employable PMET are numbered as employers begin to find them untrainable and unadaptable due to senility/ silent strokes due to chronic disease the consequence of unhealthy lifestyles. "As of 2010, more than half of Singapore's adult population between 18 and 69 years old have high cholesterol, four in 10 are overweight or obese, a quarter have prediabetes or diabetes and about one in five has hypertension."
    Thus, just from the slide shown alone, it is highly likely that the diabetic Singaporean will have difficulty seeking employment let alone be functional independently because of vision problems (diabetic retinopathy), cannot remember where he is going/ give useful suggestions (stroke/ dementia), has low effort tolerance/ easily out of breath (kidney + heart disease + smoker's lung), constantly on MC and giddy due to infections, weak kidneys and the diabetic ulcers on his feet (pict of foot below) etc etc.

    In short, more lifts rather than escalators should be provided for the singapore population for which electric wheelchairs are a more suitable form of personalised short distance transportation.

    And neither are our PAP leaders/ parliamentarians today by any measure paragon examples of good health:
