Why did MOM remove the cap on fees that EAs can charge employers?

Employers are unlikely to be exploited by employment agencies (EAs) charging unreasonable fees as they have a stronger bargaining power compared to workers.

On the other hand, workers, especially foreign workers, usually face information asymmetry and have little control in choosing their Singapore EA or the EA fees that they are asked to pay.
