SMRT PRC bus captains go on strike
I bet the PM is watching this closely and demanding more info.
Singaporean workers are too afraid to take such action. Malaysians are close enough to us to behave like us. The Chinese are where else but trained in China - gutsy and organize themselves for such action pretty effectively.
Businesses, if you hire foreigners at low prices you must understand that there is no free lunch. You get what you pay for. For a while you could get a bargain and other times you are worse off but this isn't the currency markets, eventually you get what you pay for. SMRT just did.
In the larger vein, when you open up Singapore to all and sundry from outside, you lose your identity. Since we have no KPIs for identity, we sold it for a song. Bureaucrats and politicians do not manage what they don't measure. Similarly for a long time and still true in many developing countries, businesses do not pay for polluting the environment.
