This blogpost is a follow-up to last month's 2 comments JCube - Reactor Core Meltdown cum Cancerous GDP Growth. The meltdown of the core has become complete. We don't see the govt controlled propaganda media reporting on 'ghosttowns'. Even the shopping mall's facebook page makes no mention of their rot.
I have not been to Sun Plaza shopping mall which is beside Sembawang train station. It was reported by forummers on a message board that around 80% of the shops there have closed shop. I guess the biggest ghosttown is Sun Plaza at the moment so JCube's rot/meltdown still pales at the moment.
Economy has become even more fucked up.
- Trainees get allowance of S$4.50/hr in Childhood Career Path
How miserable can it get when it is worse than waiters/waitresses with no experience? How can the person undergoing the training being paid such pathetically concentrate on higher objectives in her jobscope?
Can care for kids when mind is preoccupied with such 3rd world allowances to feed oneself?
It is a govt initiative so this shows how 'well' it treats the locals. Socio-political sites ought to highlight the pathetic allowance to make the hybrid regime lose even more votes.
- 'S'poreans first' hiring not good for economy in the long term
The massive flooding in of foreign workers has seen increased businesses closing shop. Most foreign workers are just here to earn $$$. If locals are not decently paid, where is their spending power to sustain the local businesses gonna come from? And locals are on this tiny island for many many years in terms of contributing their spending power.
Not good for economy in long term? Well, we already seen the rot getting worse with the JCube example.
JCube - Reactor Core Total Meltdown
Several pictures are recycled from last month's blogpost as before comparison. I've shrinked some of them as i don't want the picture size to drag this blogpost for too long. I won't write much - pictures tell better how fucked up it is.
The only retail shop that has a new tenant. How long will it last?
