Following the retrenchment of 2400 SIA staff, offers has been pouring in to recruit these staff. From Eton House to Investment Firm and even Jumbo Seafood, there are options available. While the role is not the same, at the very least, there are many who are willing to help to ease the labour crunch.

1) 48 new COVID19 cases

  • 43 Dorms (29 Quarantine, 14 surveillance
  • 0 Community 
  • 5 imported ( 1 PR 1 Work Pass, 1 Work Permit, 2 Short term Pass)

The dorms cases are still hogging the numbers. With 14 cases detected from surveillance, expect to see more clusters.

Thankfully, there are 0 cases in the community.

5 cases are imported with 2 short tern visitors. One of them is a technician who arrived from US in a work project. Given the high rate in US, it was unexpected that short term passes are granted for travellers from there.

4) Retrenchments in the first half of 2020 rose to 11350, higher than 9920 initially estimated.

The total of 11,350 for the first half of 2020 is higher than that seen during the severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) outbreak, when there were 10,120 job cuts in the first half of 2003, but lower than other past recessionary peaks, MOM said.

Not sure how they could be so precise in the estimate , but this is 20 % more than expected.
