Yeah, I agree. But since they hired me under a fresh grad status seeing that I've less than a year exp and considering covid situation, I think in a way I'm still quite lucky. What do you think?

When such a large population of trainees are getting 2.5k and amidst such a labour market, yes you should be satisfied.

We should all be grateful that we are not all starving to death in this pandemic. Obviously our first point of comparison should be our third-world neighbours who are more than satisfied with a 2k pay that certain employers claim they can hire anytime. SG is not a first world country, it is a third world country, hence our fresh grads should be satisfied with third world pay.

Such sarcasm, anyway the world is how it is now, no point being sarcastic.

He's right that SG is not a first world country, even the UN recognizes this.

I hope that after the pandemic, wage inflation will be curbed so that costs of living will not rise so quickly, or better it will drop. Luckily I am already in the workforce for a few years and have enjoyed decent pay when I started work coupled with good increments over the years. As it is now time for me to start to accumulate assets like properties n all, I hope I can get everything cheaper and I hope this pandemic will present a chance for people like myself.

Sorry if I sound selfish but I think quite a few people have the same view.

Does it really matter if he has this view? That view is just a passive observation of how the world is unfolding and that it fortuitously happens to benefit his life. No need to be bitter. And he's not saying "f*ck you" either".

1. He sounds like a selfish prick
2. No that is not how the world is unfolding, that is how he wish the world would unfold. Assets (financial & properties) are still priced extremely high in the market.
