MOM_sg govsingapore Agents/ recruiters of foreign workers earn vr big commisison. Employers (hawker centres, wet markets, HDB councils) pay them salaries but almost half go to agents’ commission forever workers work here. Gov pls check agents income & require them to build dorm How about relocate them to place not so close to hdb blocks and primary school? Bad idea that such dormitory is in such a close distant with primary school!

Why later and not now? This clean up should be done even before the outbreak. These workers help build Singapore and I am sad some people are profiting from providing such deplorable living conditions and I don’t think the the government is unaware. She vows but in reality bows to capitalist corporations!

Manpower minister should resign for gross negligence and incompetence. Disgraceful. Time to get rid of her!🤬🤬🤬🤬 Embarrassing. You're not doing your job. How can employers be bigger than you as the minister. And now we have 20000 foreign workers putting us at risk. Thank u on behalf of all the workers who stay in the dormitories 🙏🤞

Hope SG wins this virus fiasco.
