Default Company offers me a 48 hrs/week job

So it seems that MOM sets a maximum no of hrs to work a week under it law. I am offered a job tat requires me to work for 48 hours a week.

is it approprciate to ask them why are they exceeding the max no of hours?

Or just take up the job due to poor mkt first and then feedback to MOM?

The mandated 44h/week requirement is excluding breaks - did you remember to remove your mandated 1h lunch break per day from your calcuations?

If you are expected to work over 44 hours (excluding breaks):
Technically, if you are a workman earning under $2600 (means blue-collar work like cleaner) or non-workman (non-manager or non-executive) earning under $4500, you are eligible for overtime pay after the maximum 44h/week. You will need to be paid 1.5 times your hourly rate (calculated based on the money you earn per month divided by the hours worked).

However, this may lead to resentment between you and the employer. It is unfair to you if you take up the job and work 48 hours without compensation, but you'll have a hard time arguing with the company after you sign the contract with them (you can always go to MOM for overtime pay, but that will sour relationships between you and the company).
