Employers roping in foreign workers to help them queue up for bak kwa

Foreign workers queueing up at Lim Chee Guan in New Bridge Road yesterday afternoon. -- ST PHOTO: NG KAI LING Instead of toiling at the construction site, Indian national Pasopolgti Sai Babo spent much of Tuesday in a long queue waiting to buy bak kwa. He was one of about 10 foreign workers spotted in the queue of about 150 people at popular barbecued meat seller Lim Chee Guan's New Bridge Road outlet. The workers told The Straits Times that they were dropped off in the morning by their bosses and told to stand in line for bak kwa. Mr Pasopolgti joined the queue at 6.30am, and finally got his hands on 10kg of bak kwa after eight hours in the queue. 'My boss told me to come, so I came, cannot argue. I'm very tired,' said the 42-year-old, who works for a construction company. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus. blog comments powered by Disqus
