We don't use the "s" with the third person for present subjunctive.
You'll find the same pattern with the verb "suggest, recommend, and mind".
It's possible to recommend someone "for something", but if we are giving advice to someone, we can't say, I recommend you to read this book". It must be, "I recommend that you read this book".
Once again, the same pattern occurs with "suggest" and "mind".
They recommended me for the job.
They recommended him to give Paul the job.
They recommended that Paul give Dave the job.
Please throw some light on this thread as well on the usage of articles...
