Imagine being a foreigner working in Singapore and having an additional $400k by virtue of your birthplace lottery. During my time in MINDEF policy dept, I have tried to push for additional income taxes for foreigners to level the playing field but was brushed off for making Singapore "uncompetitive".

That's not to say I disagree with compulsory NS, because without male citizens to provide those financial sacrifice those of us in MINDEF would be without a stable civil service career, so let us give a moment of appreciation to them.
Shut the fck up boomer

Thank you for your openness and honesty, however in the words of LKY, not many in the current strawberry gen workers can take such unvarnished "Hard Truths" to keep Singapore going.

can try between 4-4.3k. anyway, fresh grads not much nego power due to no experience in private sector. they will just pay you according to your degree. if your degree is worth 4.5k, they wont shortchange you.

source: i randomly quoted 3k cause i was v innocent as a fresh grad few years back. they still offered me 3.9k based on my qualifications.
