Singaporean engineers aren't paid as well as American engineers because they lack the entrepreneur spirit. They do only what they are expected to do. They don't actively look for opportunities to make money or create value. This is why local engineers jobs are easily outsourced to foreigners.

The second difference is:

Locals look at certs and degrees; Americans look at real skills. Tech startups in silicon valley don't care if you are a college dropout or a high school diploma holder. If you can solve the company's problems, you are in.


If you can't make money as an engineer, it's probably your fault.
