They were not the ones who brought in the Covid 19 virus. They were not the ones who traveled overseas and brought the virus to our shore. They merely came to Singapore to do jobs that we Singaporeans do not want to do and now they are paying for the irresponsible behavior from many of us.
Lee Hsien LoongのFBの4月16日のコメントをみるとどのようにシンガポールが外国人労働者を位置付けたのかが分かる。彼らを「シンガポールへの貢献者」として位置づけ、我々は感謝を示すべきだと。
Foreign workers have helped us to build HDB towns, MRT lines, airports and ports. Some man midnight shifts in our factories. Others take care of our sick and elderly in hospitals and nursing homes. Hundreds of thousands of Singapore households depend on domestic workers from neighboring countries.
We are grateful for their contributions, and for their understanding and cooperation as we tackle COVID-19. We will work with them, especially those living in the dorms, to see through this difficult period.
