Why Our NTU/NUS Grads End Up Driving U/G?

The govt likes to show ranking of our schools, particularly NUS and NTU. Of course, it means to show everyone should aspire to study
degrees from these schools to ensure they get good jobs et cetera.

Recently, I attended PDVL training, I found in the classes, many ex-PMETs from polys, NTU and NUS. I went around a bit to surveyed. A lot of them were from computer science, electrical and civil engineering, most were replaced. A number of them in their 30s and mostly in their 40s. There were some fresh grads who could not land jobs yet and driving to make a living. Oh my god! You mean our grads from these schools cannot land jobs?! They added that too many foreigners plying the same trade and lower salary. Just like many Indians FT doing electrical engineering and many Pinoy engineers doing civil engineering jobs.

The clown loved to claim GDP growth, of course even the dumb would know GDP growth can be achieved by importing labour. So in come millions of foreigners, we are supposed to hit 7M by 2030 but we are already near 6M, this is only 2018. The doors are enlarged and wide open causing so many locals to be under employed or unemployed. Where the govt keeps publishing surveys that these schools are top, they go around hire all the cheap labour with dubious degrees from third world.

Many of our locals have HDB and lengthy loans and now without a job, they force themselves to go drive private car. When autonomous car is here, what will they do? You expect them to go the tallest floor of MBS?

Nearing the end of conversation, I asked the famous question, “Who did you vote for?”. As predicted, you see the stunned silence in their face. So we can all come complain here and you can go complain outside but weren’t you the ones who voted for it?

Next is for those who still have a job. Just like these people, they were all having jobs not so long ago. And they are being replaced gradually, do not think you are from NTU and NUS you are safe.

FTs are preferred in this country and you voted for it. So keep voting to increase the speed of your replacement! May the force be with you and don’t cry for me Argentina when time comes!

    But vocational driving is on their last legs. Electric vehicles with autonomous driving system are on the verge of a technological breakthrough & mainstream acceptance within the next few years. Then what?
    As for foreigner population, many will return to their homeland once Trump’s America First policies bite hard on S’pore. This is the greatest threat to S’pore but the PAP leadership is like Nero played the fiddle while Rome burned! FYI, China had just passed a series of retrospective tax breaks backdated to 1 January 2017 to head off Trump’s tax cuts. Apparently, Xi JingPin & his economic advisors sees the inherent dangers of the US Tax reforms that would deeply affect their economy. And S’pore? PM is on holiday with his wife who heads S’pore SWF – 2 of S’pore’s critical decision makers who appears to ‘Bo-chap’ While at home, our leading GLC Keppel Corp is embroiled in a bribery case involving many questions. And PAP has a ‘Zero-Tolerance’ for corruption. And like SMRT, signs points to sweeping the dirt underneath the carpet.
    2017 was a good year for the PAP ministers & the civil service. 3.5% GDP growth which looks like a whimsical statistic when one lifts the veil & peer inside. S’pore is drifting towards the dangerous rapids below. But alas, many are unaware; partying & having a good time to ever notice.

    The population ponzi will continue. The garment will encourage the unemployed or underemployed PMET to go for lifelong learning. Blame them for not having the skills needed for now & future. Let’s ask ourselves, what are the things that those foreign talent ( in Raffles Place & Changi Business Park and many other places ) can do that local Singaporean PMET cannot do? At the end of the day, the garment just don’t acknowledge that the biggest elephant in the room is their open leg policy for more than 1 decade. Japan has its “lost decade”…so is Singapore…sad to say. Too blinded by the GDP growth through population growth importing economic immigrant.

  • Selfish Sinkie Syndrome:

    To Mervyn Tan, agree 100% with your comment. Like old generation like to say Singapolang still “mm zai si” (i.e. don’t know what is really DIE state).

    Actually, the economy here is just a hollow empty shell. We cannot produce any real thing or manufacture any product without outsourcing it.

    Can we produce cars? No. Can we produce mobile phones? No.
    Can we produce great software apps? No. Can we make aircraft? No.
    Even our ship-building industry don’t really have the deep skills like in other countries such as Korea or Japanese shipbuilders. Here, everything technical/engineering related is mostly outsourced to some other company to do. That’s why no innovation here because everyone here is doing bulls**t jobs like admin, HR manager, or use their mouth to work type of jobs like lawyers or politicians and civil servants. Think about it, all those HR, civil servants and politicians do what?? At the end of the day, its just ADMIN paperwork, right? Coordinate people to do this or that, write up reports, fill up forms, attend meetings, write some policy notes or speech. Hahaha.

    Other countries engineers do real h/w or s/w innovation like create new AI program, design aircraft engines, develop new encryption routines, do hard science or R&D, research on new chemicals or bio-tech material science etc. which can generate new revenue, new products and even new companies.

    LKY who is a lawyer, chose the easy road to riches by focusing not on core DO-ing skills but on TALK-ing and transaction skills to “churn” money which is faster. Thats all we are good at now. Thats why here only banking and finance, law or property people make good money here. Its all a shell game now to do transactions then take a cut in commission.

    Iawyers – use mouth job, extract high fees
    politicians – use mouth job, extract high salaries
    insurance agents – use mouth job, extract commission
    property agents – use mouth job, extract comms
    wealth managers/remisier – use mouth job, transaction, extract comms
    investment advisor/broker – use mouth job, transaction, extract comms

    From the inputs to those above jobs to their final output, do they actually produce anything tangible? NOTHING. They only do paperwork and manipulate numbers on some excel sheets and then extract their fees/comms and then transact some digits from your bank acct to theirs.

    No cars, no new tech, no new mobile phone, created in all the above transactions. Hahaha. But the money is better than engineering work which is too difficult and tough to make money from.

    Thats why as time passes, more things break down. Like MRT example having zero technical skills or no experience local staff. Many engineering-trained friends of mine all move into easier & faster money jobs long ago or…

  • WHO DID YOU VOTE FOR?:

    Now we got another no 1 standing to this country. World’s most educated taxis drivers. All thanks to who? We all know!!! – Which ZhenHu? Really sad to see this is happening in this country. Open leg immigration policy, true blue locals being replaced by cheaper Ah nei or Pinoys. I pity those REAL local citizens. There is no alternative for them to go, look another job and stuck in Singapore. Listening those BS nonsense propaganda like we have to learn to adapt and go through some meaningless courses to upgrade ourselves. Your $500 Skillcredit can’t even covered my 2 months utility bills. BIG THANK YOU 70%. So ask yourself again who did you vote for? Good bye Singapore, I’ve enough of this BIG SHIT.

    The remake of S’pore (2006 till todate) basically all about Free Trade Agreements, Casinos & Money Laundry activities. They allow for hordes of foreigners in because they’ll accept lower pay & work for longer hours (they wayang at work – but no productivity). That’s why productivity was negative with the foreign hordes.
    And that why Trump’s America First policies will cause economic problems for S’pore. The offshore monies parked within the S’pore Banking system will be going back to the US. The last 2-3 years were already very weak after Xi JingPin enacted the Anti-corruption Drive (S’pore casinos business went down) & Indonesian President Jokowi initiated the Tax Amnesty for the Indonesian rich – both had targetted S’pore specifically.

    Exactly. Everyone knows the empty shell here is just a money “washing” Hub in the likes of Monaco or British Virgin islands, since LXL started the casinos here. Other countries such as Indoo, China or US is simply taking opportunity to get back some of their off-shored tax money that they know has “washed” onto our financial “hub”.

    See my points on those jobs above, they ALL benefit when the washing machines here “churn” global rich to come here and “invest” or buy property here, but this does not generate any real economic gains for the country (except the rich and those in such sectors taking their fees) nor does it create new tech or new companies or new jobs.

    They just “churn” money and take a cut out as commissions or fees. It is exactly the same with money “washing”. It does not create new tangible products, but merely transaction of money here and there for a hefty fee.
    At the end of the day, still an empty shell, which is why our engineering skills end up driving taxis. Spore economy is on her last legs in my view….just you wait and see. I already prepare my exit plan if sinkieland really sink.

    they can go to the tallest floor of their condo or DBSS or BTO and jump down from there together with all their families.

    the stunned silence says it all. they must be wondering “what has the election got to do with me driving U/G?”
