Idk if it’s selection bias, but why are the Singaporeans here all earning an insane amount?
You earn 4k? Too little to survive SG it’s not even much
You earn 6k? lol that’s like every average Singaporean you’ll just survive but not live
Correct me if I’m wrong but a MAJORITY of Singaporeans are earning about 4.5k. And there’s a whole group who are earning less than 2.6k who aren’t even in the statistics.
Ffs idk if I’m out of touch with reality but this made me think that if I don’t earn 10k and above I’m not living life in SG.
And then you question why people are stressed and asking how much others are earning. No it’s not to make themselves feel better it’s to see how true these sweeping statements are.
Whether what we are earning commensurate with with our job scope and years of experience. Or have I been living in my fantasy bubble and 80% of Singaporeans are earning 10k minimum working as investment backers and software developers at FAANG. If you say 6k is too little, how would that make someone who is barely earning 2.4k feel?
I graduated from Uni few years back and minus your Comp science, IB , medicine grads, most of us are only earning somewhere between 4-5k now.
Oh yea let’s just heed their advice “Why care so much just live your life and stop comparing lol” lol and here we all are chirping in
