Understand from tonight news that our hawkers are concerned about their inability to transfer their trade and skill to their children and it will die off with them.
I would like to suggest having hawker trade taught in ITE or WDA, let them have Industrial orientation at the hawker center, attached to the hawkers. It is a trade for those who can't do well academically. It will providence a decent income. Sometime even a very lucrative income, if they are good and hardworking.
Just my humble suggestion to give an alternative job opening for those less academically inclined.
