I look forward to the day when NQ pay is S$3k across the board

He's salty because his firm can't keep up, maybe because its not as profitable as the US and Magic Circles? Nobody is forcing his firm to anyway.

Pushing down NQ pay to $3K (i.e. auditor level payscale) will never happen. As it is, law firms are already suffering from a severe attrition of senior associates at the midlevel. Good luck trying to find people willing to do legal saikang at auditors' salary scales.

The question now is not the lack of work, but the lack of able bodies to do it. Ask any Big 4 partner and they will tell you how difficult it is to find senior associates.
