I’m writing here what I’ve posted as status updates on my Facebook:
Do you know that a cleaner in Norway earns S$4,500?
This means that more than 70% to 75% of Singaporeans earn less than a low-wage earner in Norway.
But do you also know that prices of groceries and daily necessities in Norway are similar to Singapore. Not only that, housing and cars are cheaper in Norway, and healthcare and education is free in Norway.
What this means is that not only are 70% to 75% of Singaporeans poorer than a low-wage worker in Norway, we have to pay more from our low wages and we have a much diminished purchasing power.
This means that for 70% to 75% of Singaporeans, the PAP is severely shortchanging Singaporeans.
Singaporeans, we are being cheated.
I’m in a constant state of shock as to how 75% of Singaporeans earn less than a cleaner in Norway but have to pay the same prices for everything, or more.
Singapore is now the most expensive place to live in the world and prices are the same as in Norway, but houses and cars are cheaper and healthcare and education is free.
Yet, a cleaner here earns S$4,500 but 75% of Singaporeans earn lesser than that.
This means that 75% of Singaporeans are very poor and we are badly cheated by the PAP. And I’m just in a constant state of shock how the PAP has betrayed Singaporeans.
Yet, a high-income earner in Norway earns $300,000 a year (which they think is already a lot of money) but a high-income earner in Singapore earns millions.
The PAP has created a system where they become the richest in the world while Singaporeans become the poorest among the developed countries.
I’ve never seen anything like this before and it just shocks me how any government can do this to the people.
It shocks me how the PAP has hijacked the government and pretend to run the country while all the while making Singaporeans poorer and poorer while helping themselves get richer and richer.
This is not a government. Singaporeans are being made used of by the PAP.
Singaporeans are being betrayed by the government.
The main reason the PAP doesn’t want to increase tax on the richest because they do not want to tax themselves.
Therefore it’s easier to make Singaporean pay 38% of their wages into tax and CPF, while letting the richest pay only 25%.
When you let the PAP pay themselves the highest salaries and where they then control the government, they will create policies to protect themselves.
Because they get to.
Now that I’ve come to Norway, it has become blatantly obvious how the PAP has infiltrated government to benefit themselves and make their lives better while making the lives of the rest of the 80% of Singaporeans worse off.
Singaporeans, I don’t know how to explain this to you. We fear that we have nothing else to hold on to and so we deny the wrongdoings that the PAP has done to Singaporeans.
But when you come to Norway, you see possibilities and opportunities. Then you realise how much Singaporeans can do for ourselves and how all our lives can get better.
Singaporeans, we need to trust ourselves now. We need to take control and take charge. We need to realise that we can lead Singapore into a better future, because the PAP won’t do so.
The PAP is only using government to benefit themselves. We need to take government back to protect all Singaporeans.
We need to rise up and fight. For our freedom and for our rights, we need to fight! We need to fight against the scrouge of the PAP.
