    People who feel the pinch must wise up, cut down expenditure and try earn more to keep up. Your RM10 is so small nowadays...
    There's no 2 ways about it. If I start to elaborate..some people here would love to brand me as nothing but ranting and singing the same ole tune..
    I better not say too much, I presume you all know it too well, matter of putting it to practice.

    P.S. Funny that there's no mention of how much they spend on food.. it can be quite a chunk from their paycheck!
    Have to own a car and fork out monthly instalment?..Yes, I guess its very necessary..goes to show your gahmen failed everyone by not fulfilling most efficient public transportation todate. Got bad cabbies with stinking reputation summore!

    First one must get a job.... The young man who comes to my house on house visit to clean my PC, do upgrades, and whatever I require to be done for my PC is a computer science diploma holder from UTAR... jobless for 3 years... I am introducing him to some HR recruiters and hope one of them will take him on and give him a chance...

    Your 1govt is promoting Proton industry and not public transportation. That's why it took 20 years for the LRT extension to complete. Sad thing is the bus service is still horrendous after 50 years

    But they don't realise that good times don't last forever, the oil prices has dropped and Ringgit has shrunk.

    So how can there be enough jobs when the civil service is already bloated and private companies are either investing abroad (for lower operating cost) or closing down due to high operating cost.

    Many of these so-called graduates are not fit as graduate in the first place..

    Thanks to your 1gomen which decided on quantity rather than quality

    With the exception of public service which they may stand a chance to get a job due to obvious reason, lt would be a surprise to me if they are not jobless

    Some of these graduates do not even know between single phase and 3 phases.

    Such is the quality of graduates these days

    Worst of all is very poor command of the English language. Not all, but just too many I may have come across all too frequently.

    A wrong decision can cause the faith of a nation to veer off in a direction it was never meant to go. Today's progress is determined by yesterday's choices.

    Then we have to recall the adage which is time and again followed not just here but in many other countries but at to what stage peril and consequences, that's left to be seen.
    The adage is "Government knows best". If it works out, fine and well, If it doesn't, especially in a small country like ours and under unique circumstances from race to religion to economics, the consequences are untold.
    Your 1PM did state that this adage is over in principle, but it will never be all true in every sense of the meaning. Government will continue to implement policies without thorough consultation.

    Agree... but then who is to be blamed? They are innocent victims of a system of poor politics and system created by us adults.... we do our best and assist... no point criticising all the time because some of us are no better... despite already in the 50s....

    There is no such thing as one-size-fits-all for social policies, political strategies, economics, military and technology development of a nation. At times, policies and strategies change according to time and needs alongside with core development. It is for the think tank to plan well.

    If you take their papers and send it for marking in a Singapore uni, more than 3/4 will fail
