Lies by Alex Tan’s States Times Review!
Just because PM Lee explained briefly the plans and strategies are, Alex Tan tried to twist PM Lee’s words claiming PM is suggesting that Singaporeans should wait out till the recession ends by itself?
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong last night addressed concerns that workers had about jobs, as he outlined what the Government was doing to help businesses upgrade and create good jobs, and Singaporeans acquire skills for these jobs.At the same time, the labour movement and Manpower Ministry will make sure workers facing layoffs are treated fairly, and match them with available jobs, he said at a National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) dialogue.
NTUC also announced the formation of a unit to identify future job trends, and match and train workers to take on the jobs.
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong addressed some of the concerns Singapore workers have on jobs during his speech at the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) last night. In this speech, he outlined what the Government was doing to help businesses upgrade and create good jobs.
Not only that, he added that the labour movement and the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) will ensure workers who are facing layoffs be treated fairly, and help them acquire the skill necessary for available jobs.
PM Lee noted that while the economy is slowing, Singapore is not in a crisis as it was when the 2008 global financial crisis hit. A longer-term strategy is in place to grow the economy and create jobs, he told union leaders.
Workers will get more help developing skills relevant to up-and-coming jobs with the launch of a new department by the labour movement next year.The Future Jobs, Skills and Training unit will gather data on specific companies and industries where new investments and jobs will be over a three-year timeframe.
It will work with unions, professional bodies, government agencies, consultancies and educational institutes to identify opportunities, National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) assistant secretary-general Patrick Tay said yesterday.
