Ep32 Are we treating our food hawkers like shit?

With social enterprises poised to take over the hawker industry for the foreseeable future, problems with how our local hawker vendors are generally being treated by said
enterprises, the gahmen, and the customers have come to the forefront.

Can a system where we set the price floor for hawkers, in addition to not having subsidies and increased cost of doing business, continue to function in the modern world? Do Singaporeans deserve to continue to have delicious hawker food at such low prices? Will the hawker culture in general, die off once the current generation retires?
