Teach your wantoks how to fish and they will never come back to you, keep giving them 2 kina for cleaning your backyard and they will make your backyard their fortress.

The original post was talking about graduates looking for employment in PNG, not about community school kids looking for school fees or youth groups raising funds through a cleaning contract.

After my degree programme, for 3 months I was employed as a cleaner and I enjoyed the job but after awhile I met alot of tax drivers in Singapore with Masters Degree.

Pardon me, not 'tax drivers' but instead it should be 'taxi drivers' in the thread above.

I don't know the circumstances which lead you to be a cleaner and in which country you were a cleaner but if you were providing janitorial services in Singapore per you comparison with Taxi drivers in Singapore, I suppose the cleaner's job would have been sufficient cater for you basic needs.

Back home in PNG, securing a good paying job is hard for uni graduates. Some very good students haven't even secured employment yet while unqualified people make their way into positions whose minimum qualification requirement is a degree. There is no difference between an accounting degree from UPNG/Unitech/DWU to a certificate in book keeping from ITC. Everyone is being classified as graduate accountants. This is why I am saying there is lots of nepotism and corrupt deals going on in the recruitment processes in organisations in PNG. It's all a system game now, it will require major culture changes and I am not sure if this generation in PNG will ever see any changes at all.

I was a cleaner with DPM in Port Moresby for some six months. In regard to your latter note, I assume that you have not yet read in full the message behind making people earn their living competitively.
