ARE LOCAL EMPLOYERS STINGY, PAY PEANUT BUT WANT TRUCK LOAD OF WORK DONE

A job seeker in Singapore has taken to social media to express her frustrations with the expectations of some employers during job interviews. She noted that many local companies are asking for a significant amount of work, often exceeding the job’s pay grade, while offering low salaries and no overtime pay. The job seeker also pointed out that some employers demand their employees to work on weekends, even if the management is not present, and without any additional compensation.

Despite her frustrations, the job seeker expressed hope that there are still companies that prioritize their employees’ well-being and work-life balance. She mentioned that these companies offer flexible work policies, allowing employees to have a fulfilling life outside of work and potentially start a family.

However, not all netizens agreed with the job seeker’s sentiments. Some commented that the job seeker had a misunderstanding of business economics and that the salary offered is the market price for the job. Others criticized the job seeker for being ungrateful for having a job and suggested that she should consider working part-time or look for employment in third-world countries.

This situation highlights the importance of fair compensation and work-life balance in the workplace. Employers should ensure that the salary and benefits they offer are commensurate with the job’s responsibilities and demands. At the same time, employees should be aware of their worth and not settle for less than what they deserve.

It is also essential to have open communication between employers and employees regarding their expectations and concerns. By fostering a positive and respectful work environment, both parties can benefit and contribute to the company’s success.
