No OT is pure exploitation, the market is paying fresh grads at 3.5k + OT now

It has pushed me to a point that i dont mind switching to another industry.

Yea i might refer them to MOM.

My job is more related to QA of h/w products
asking u to come back on weekends with no compensation is pure exploitation and thinking u r gd to bully...

do not let these companies bully them... tell them to pay u (at least off in lieu for weekends) as they r supposed to... accordingly to labour law, no one is allowed to work more than 60 hours a week...

please kindly report such companies and let them collapse!

I will say it's more 3.2k without OT on average. Typically for most PMET roles, coys do not pay OT. If they do, it's a privilege not a right.

Just to share that I was class of 2005 from the same course. I never went into IT after my graduation so it's not too late to consider moving to another industry.
