What's your job now? For proper comparison, you need to at least put down what you are doing now.

You got to be joking right?? 4k for just diploma holder?? HR would rather hire a 1st class honors at a cheaper salary than to pay 4k to a diploma holder whose "experience" may not be exactly "professional" experience... most likely to be in an assistant kind of job position or some other menial supporting role...
My advise is to pursue a chemistry degree so that people will not use your diploma status against you when you are negotiating for better salary.. In Singapore, without the right papers to back you up.. You will always be at the disadvantage... This is more so in the chemical industry where you are from.. Knowledge certified by a degree is a must for better remunneration...

That's what everyone is doing! The best education is to open one's eyes and see where this country is heading. Then form up the best solution to turn one's fate around.

The best path for young people now: go overseas to study, work in any professional job (though jobless rate high, you still can find work), then get citizenship there, and come back as a foreign talent. There are more and more such cases.

If you can't beat the foreign talent here, join them!
