Remember year 2003~2004? when only 77 jobs offered per-month island wide..(base on Jobsdb for Mechanical Engineer)
my batch of friends graduated from NTU Mechanical Engineering will be happy for a 2.2k starting pay.

about 4 yrs latter,Today, imagine your annual increment is about 7%,and some promotion at 10% increment.
You will only get about 3.3k NOW.

I switched to Software field 2 yrs ago, just slightly peanutly better..

Pay at the end of the day is subjective.

Be happy and live a fulfilling life.

I'm not gonna be bothered about my low pay anymore.

When u cannot find job even first class or dean list also no use..

To high-paid : No need to get offensive here. You wanna scold, try looking at the mirror and you can start.

To low paid : Why do I have to look into the mirror and start? My pay is much lower than yours and I don't complain. It pains me to see pathetic people like you getting a reasonable salary and still pity yourself..

Rather than being so angry at somebody who's "getting a reasonable salary and still pity himself", why not explore avenues that will get you a higher pay?

And if you're genuinely happy about your "low pay" (according to yourself), then why need to be so angry?
