Fabs have alot of fts, and even manager level and exec level staff also need go inside cleanroom wear space suit. Maybe sinkies just don't like. But many of the techs could afford cars then.

In my year in poly I was the only local to take fab as specialization. The rest all ft.

Maybe not glam enough for sinkies to take up, maybe not enough sinkies even if got many sinkies want to pick up. I dunno.

Based on the youtube video sinkieland also cannot outspend tsmc or samsung, lose in scale.

CSM's only good time and lucky break is the major earthquake that happened in Taiwan in the late 90s where production facilities were affected.

After that when the Taiwanese fabs recovered, Chartered no longer saw the same utilisation rate.

TSMC is too way ahead of the competition liao.
don't think Samsung can do anything about it.

When CSM was listed, the car parks inside the campus was full till they have to rent the open space opposite the campus for the staff to park the cars.
Those were the good old days.

Operations still have local managers and vice president, only the technology development have most of the foreign talents

This quite true, the last time I was in a local fab, most people I met were either Msians or likely from a South Asia country :o
