The Hard Truth about hawker food

In Political economy on 21/10/2018 at 10:57 am

Having read https://www.todayonline.com/big-read/big-read-grumbling-and-rumbling-social-enterprise-hawker-centres-whats-rub while there seems to be some hanky hanky about the way social enterprise hawker centres are run, the bottom line is that cheap hawker food is an unreasonable demand if the PAP govt is not willing to do something about rentals.

And if S’poreans don’t force the govt to rethink the issue of rentals, then Fishball Story’s Mr Ng is right to say

that Singaporeans should not continue to think that hawker food must be kept at traditionally low prices. When prices increase, hawkers can enjoy better margins and be more motivated to sustain their career “if they see good returns for their hard work”.

“We can start by paying a little more. If you want cheap food, I’ll give you budget-quality food. If you want good, proper food, expect to pay more.”

With the Government putting the pressure on hawkers to keep their food prices down, “there is no way hawkers can survive in the long run”, he added.

S’poreans have to realise that if rents are high, they got to Pay and Pay, juz like for ministers’ salaries, COEs etc.

Trump supports Crazy Smart Asians

The Trump administration has filed an amicus brief in support of the organisation bringing this case against Harvard

The plaintiffs say that if race was not considered, and if admissions were only based on grades alone, twice as many Asian pupils would be admitted because they perform well academically.

The case is expected to shed light on admissions practices at universities. Courts have previously allowed universities to examine race as a factor in order to promote diversity on campus, a practice known as affirmative action, or “reverse discrimination”.

The interesting thing about this American Asian (ethnic Chinese in the main) group is that it is a minority group claiming that some applicants are unfairly losing out on places because of the efforts to maintain diversity among other minorities.
