As we celebrate May Day, let us honour our workers and at the same time, the migrant workers who do not cross our paths frequently and are involved in jobs that are most likely shunned by our citizens.
The migrant workers in our midst are generally hardworking, law-abiding, and peaceful people.
They perform hard labour, work long hours, have comparatively low wages, and even carry out their jobs under dangerous conditions.
Their contributions to our economy and society are vital and significant. Our communities, families, loved ones and ourselves are beneficiaries of their labor.
Therefore, let us treat them with dignity, kindness and compassion.
As we look after the migrant workers, we pay it backward to our forefathers who were once migrant workers on our land. In addition, we pay it forward for the sake of our progress.
The greatness of our country is a reflection of the way we look after our people as well as the people who are not from our land.
I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
