This is what Lee has done. In his mad rush to increase the GDP, he has gone out to the world and claimed it is just another
As it is necessary for Lee to become competitive at any costs, there are no minimum wage laws. Thousands of low wage Malaysians are allowed to cross the border each day to work in the multi national American companies. Even more impoverished foreigners are given work passes to work for measly wages, and take away jobs from native Singaporeans. This is the sort of competition that the Lee Ruling Family proudly proclaim.
In their mad rush to increase business and presumably their (Lee Ruling Family’s) wealth they initiate and create entirely new businesses in the island even though Singaporeans have no expertise in them whatsoever.
