Manpower Ministry looking into 31 labourers' unpaid wages

Click HERE

Those whom we did the competition compre AQ recently, recall the point that competition results in exploitation of workers that pauperise them, as this is how businesses are able to offer lower pricing to customers (something gotta give! and the workers happen to be the easiest to compromise)

Note:
-Ministry of Manpower (MOM) as the govt body to safeguard interests of workers

-easy to exploit foreign workers because of the hold companies have on them:
"When asked why the workers had waited as long as eight months before they complained to MOM, Mr Motin said: "Boss say if we complain, he cancel work permit and send us home."
Transient Workers Count Too vice-president Russell Heng said workers have a real fear of being sent home because they would have already paid thousands of dollars to work here"

Qns:
1. How far should firms be allowed to limit their workers’ rights when 
profits are at stake? (Cam. 2014)
2. Is competition always desirable? (Cam. 2016)
