You cannot be more wrong if you think that foreign workers in Singapore work round the clock (save for their time-off on Sun evenings). At least once a year, we pay tribute to them as part of May Day celebrations. And this year was no exception. We took around 14000 workers to the ……………[drumroll]…….ZOO !! That’s right….for all the hard work they put in at the construction sites, we take them to see animal shows, live bands and acrobatic stunts. This is really a Uniquely Singaporean way of treating its foreign workers. I wonder if we checked with the foreign workers whether they REALLY want to go the zoo. I would rather think that they would prefer getting a day off with free meals and extra $.
