    A sight for sore eyes.



    Hi Guys,

    Like to share you the sad fact of being employed and treated as foreign skilled labour in a foreign country.

    Sometime back, due to my personal commitment, I was called upon to vacate my freelance work in my now location and returned to my country to work
    Tis was here during the rainy season when I witness how this company transport their foreign labour.
    The company have vans but the sad fact was all for personal utilization. Nobody cares or bothers, talk about human right.

    Left the God forsaken Company.

    We've all seen it.

    The driver of that vehicle, if he were in the UK on any road, would certainly be stopped by the police.

    So, enlighten us, where was all this taking place?

    Hi Argus ,

    It happens in Asia, SGP.
    They are foreigners there, catering to the short supply of workforce in that country.
    They are also being force to perform stupendous task.
    No complaint.
    But when approach and inquire, they start to whine, squeal and even whimper about the suffering and hardship condition they encounter in their country of origin.
    But they tolerated all these there, in a foreign soil.
    Ridiculous.

    Yeah chill ,

    Thats a good one, they are not dead neither are they
    the living dead. .
    They are just play acting dead from the twilight zone.
    Cheerio Bro.

    God bless all these people. Amin.

    Eeee you were lucky - we used to live in a Nissen hut without any windows. Get up at 04:00 and lick the floor clean.

    That is good, they look well after workers!

    In Mocambique, you would end up standing, 26 on a pickup without umbrellas or rain coats, without getting wet!
