    6. 6. Discrimination in case. <ul><li>People who are associated with African or Arabic names are severely discriminated. </li></ul><ul><li>An example would be job discrimination. The unemployment rate of the foreigners is 14% as compared to the unemployment rate of 9% for people of French roots. </li></ul><ul><li>Clichy-sous-Bois is the suburbs that house the immigrant populations </li></ul>

    10. 10. contrat première embauche <ul><li>Probation of 2 years </li></ul><ul><li>Allows company to fire people under 26 without reason </li></ul><ul><li>Aimed at improving employment of those under 26 by decreasing reluctantancy caused by previous laws </li></ul>

    15. 15. How about Singapore? <ul><li>Currently, Singapore is shifting to be a cosmopolitan nation. Out of every four people here, there is 1 foreigner. In the future, the ratio would be 1 : 1, local : foreigners. </li></ul><ul><li>Hiring practices must be fair, however this is a not the case. In this article, Indian, Malay job seekers complain of discrimination in Singapore due to unfair hiring practices. </li></ul>
    16. 17. How about Singapore? <ul><li>In addition, the main reason that may give rise to social division is the influx of foreigners. The future hope of the nation depends on the young generation, who will rise up to take over the leadership of the nation. </li></ul><ul><li>What are their views now? Refer to this article, “Warning signs of unhappy sentiments against foreigners”. This article explains that even though it is a inter-school competition, there was heat rising up because it is basically Singaporeans against PRCs. </li></ul>
    17. 18. Prevention of Singapore 2061 ?
    18. 19. Prevention of Singapore 2061? <ul><li>Singapore government has a huge part to play in maintaining social stability, with well form-ed policies and strict laws. The social peace we’re enjoying now will be here for decades to come. </li></ul><ul><li>In 2061, the government should integrate a policy that requires companies to have a percentage of natural Singaporeans working within their company. Say a MNC located in Singapore, should have at least 30% Singaporeans in it. This will give Singaporeans a higher chance in securing jobs. </li></ul>
    19. 20. Prevention of Singapore 2061 <ul><li>The problems we will face if we implement such policies is that the workforce will become incompetent; Singaporeans may get complacent as a job is always there for them and so there may be a lack of quality workforce for the companies. </li></ul><ul><li>The government should also do that same for schools and housing estates. The future of Singapore is dependent on the youths. </li></ul><ul><li>With careful planning and integration of races, young Singaporeans can grow up befriending people of different race and also to learn and accept them. </li></ul>
    20. 21. Problems to face? <ul><li>There may be cultural differences between the races, a Singaporean whom has little understanding of a different culture may accidentally offend the other races. </li></ul><ul><li>There may be language barriers. The minority race can also be out casted in school or living environment. </li></ul><ul><li>The government can also step up its’ laws on race discrimination, enforcing harsher punishments. </li></ul>
