She said: "If we were to go with what the Workers’ Party had proposed, let us now fix the situation as it is today and turn off the foreign manpower tap, and just tap on the local manpower, what are the groups of people that we can tap on?
"Well, first of all, we have the retirees, we have also the homemakers who take care of the elderly and the young children at home. How do we attract them back into the workforce? This is indeed an issue that we have to tackle. Full story
