Getting and keeping Singaporean workers has never been a problem since he started his business six years ago.

In contrast, many businesses say they have staffing problems and are unhappy about tighter foreign worker hiring policies.

In a Facebook post that has gone viral since Sunday, Mr Benny Se Teo, 52, the founder and director of Western food restaurant Eighteen Chefs, said in a closed-door dialogue session with other restaurant bosses that he is the only one not affected by the policy changes.

He said that part of the reason he is confident he won’t face a staff crunch is that he makes it a point to hire ex-convicts.
