Hope you’re doing well. It’s been ages! This really is appalling. Recently I wrote to NTUC Income to complain about a job advertisement circulated in their newsletter which specified race as Chinese. I argued that if spoken or written Chinese skills were what they wanted, they should have said so. I was pissed because I had wanted to send the ad to a number of my ex-students who were hunting for jobs, many of whom are non-Chinese with an excellent command of spoken and written Chinese. It’s sad isn’t it? I still haven’t received a reply from NTUC.
