Here is the story

What do people under 30 earn? Is it normal to earn slightly under 6k?

I met up with my friend who grad from uni 4 years ago. He’s a lawyer. Found out he’s earning 10k already, has an amazing bonus, first property going to be a condo.

Couldn’t even mention my own salary because it is so sad, lol. I may have a stable job in government but it for sure doesn’t pay well. Gf and I have to scrimp to afford hdb and reno.

Meanwhile, lawyers earn so much, maybe traders earn even more. Really regret not working hard in JC man sigh

Netizens’ comments

  • If you don’t learn to be contented and is constantly comparing yourself a to others, even if you earn 100k won’t be enough, because unless you are Elon Musk or Jack Ma, there will always be someone that will be earning more than you.
    Life is more than just wealth and material gains, appreciate the fact that you have a stable job, a loving partner and a love nest you can call your own.Live a little, enjoy life.
  • When I’m under 30 my take home is 1.8k only. Every month save 1k for my marriage. Then struggle for a bit and was one time a stay home dad for a year when my firstborn was born.
    Now still take home 2.8k but got car and stay 5 rms with 3 kids. Me and my wife combined take home income less than 10k.
    If we can manage comfortably, I dun see why u cannot.
