In school, Sg/PR/foreigners, all are the same. it's the mode of going in I guess. I had classmates who were living in JB and commuting everyday. The only thought I remember was, "poor thing, got to wake up so early each day and spend so much time commuting".
But on a broader basis, will I be unhappy (not upset, but maybe a bit buey song) if PRs &/or foreigners enjoy the same privileges as citizens without the same responsibilities. Already I do hear of employers who prefer not to hire SG men becos they have NS liabilities which others don't have - and I'm not talking about small companies.
Sorry if I digress.
the problem lies with the employer and MOM should take action
