what you say make sense, but a few of my friends was retrenched because of FT doing the same job and those FT who came in as contractors have lower skill then all my friends. Their jobs had been taken away by lower skilled FT .The FT sometime cannot claim OT and all is about cutting cost unscrupulously. Some were given management jobs with lower gross pay and some were ask to join other department. Those who don't accept were retrenched. MOM MUST BE ALERT FOR SINGAPOREAN WORKERS SAKE.
