ABSTRACT
The article discusses the growing resentment among the Singaporeans over the influx of Chinese low-skilled workers. It states that the wave of mainland Chinese workers began in June 2007, when Singapore lifted a ban to allow Chinese immigration to staff its service industries. It reports that more than 60% of 236,600 new jobs created in 2007 went to foreigners, posing a threat to the job security of the low-wage workers of Singapore.
