Good on you mate! You have learned your lesson from the 2003 retrenchment exercise. Bad times get rid of workers and the moment business turns around you are suddenly and critically short of manpower.
So now even in this global financial meltdown you are damn scared of booting your workers especially the cabin crew.
In fact,I appaud SIA for going one step further and that's instead of booting the cabin crew at this time,it's recruiting more.
CEO Chew gambatte and we love you for learning your lesson and not following some ang mor ceos who instantly boot their staff the moment their earnings fell!
