The following is a letter from one of our readers who wants to identify himself as LC.

The government keeps saying that Singaporeans don’t want the jobs, like in this Certis Cisco case. They turn to foreigners because no Singaporeans can do the jobs. I want to prove a point that the reason why Singaporeans keep resigning is because of low pay and very bad working conditions.
