Dumb question, but can a Singaporean work as a construction worker?

I’m not talking your project manager of construction projects, but an actual construction worker alongside the foreign workers.

Like what if you really want to try construction work, operate cranes and stuff, can you?

I mean after all we have people who are passionate about driving buses, I figured maybe there be people inspired by Bob the builder and wants to operate cranes and stuff.

I know, pay is so low you say why would a Singaporean take it, but I was just curious if it’s possible.

  • Yes. Crane operators earn quite a bit tbh. But long shift
  • Can la, why not. Few years back when I was at the shipyard, hearsay crane operators earn around $6-7k. I went for lunch with a coxswain ferrying workers in his boat, young malay chap didn’t even finish ITE, earning around $5k per month.
  • There are a fair number of local Singaporeans working blue-collar roles in construction industry but not as construction workers. Construction industry encompass many roles and job scopes. Nearly all buildings require lots of wiring and electrical work to be done and there are a fair number of local Singaporeans working as electricians or technicians as on-site personnel. But mostly in 40s, and some nearing 50s.
  • There is this uncle that worked on one of my project. Got him in to join an electric cable and sp paid him 1.5k for 2 hrs of work. During lunch when I spoke to him, he mention he takes about 6 such jobs daily. He already own a yacht and a landed at this pt with 5m in his bank. He only had a psle cert.
