“This gripped my heart. A foreign worker who has no income, scooping up some rice from the road. The packet had a hole and some rice spilt from it,” the caption reads.

The member of parliament then continued her caption with:

Many netizens shared their pity for the poor man’s plight. One Facebook user even pointed out how many locals are also suffering from unemployment.
