“Staff just don’t show up”, she added, referring to all the manpower and staffing issues that she experienced.

Mr Seetoh also shared that another restaurateur, Mr Em, tried to hire locals to give locals priority to them, and to also have assistance from government on their wage subsidy scheme.

Mr Em said that when interviewing two applicants who were 22 and 19-years-old, “They requested above average market rate for kitchen job of $2500. When asked to justify their crazy request of $2500 with minimal experience, they answered ” I know you’ll get a government subsidy, so I request more””

“I’m truly at loss for words”, Mr Em told Mr Seetoh.

“Its pathetic being a SME employer in Singapore’s manpower conditions, even if you offer above govt recommended rates”, Mr Seetoh wrote, adding that there was a possibility that rules on hiring blue-collar workers would be tightened.

“Relook that frontline work manpower policy”, he advised. /TISG
