Default Industries with Highest Proportion Earning 5-Figure Monthly Income

Which are the industries that pay the highest monthly salaries?

In this post, we'll look specifically at the industries that has the highest proportion of employees making $10k or more in monthly income.

The results are derived from recently released data from MOM.

At number 1, we have "Financial & Insurance Services". A whopping 17.3% of employed residents working in this industry are making $10,000 & over in gross monthly income. The income includes all bonuses.

In contrast, the proportion of such high earners across all industries is only 4.7%.

At number 2, we have "Professional, Scientific & Technical Services". But only 10.4% here are making 5-figure salaries a month.

Coming in close at number 3 is "Information & Communications", with 10.0% making $10k+ per month.

There you have it. The top 3 industries.

Does it mean that if you're in these industries, you'll have a higher chance of making $10k+? You think so? ...

I bet the Admin forgotten our local aviation industry as well.

RSAF and Airline pilots also rack in 5 figures salaries as well. With their company bonuses, They bring home high 6 figures annual packages as well.

Not forgetting that those pilots with the high salary get to travel around the world at the company expenses.... However, it is a high risk job so... what can we say...

Haha ... they will tell you flying is statistically much lower risk than driving a vehicle on land! I would say it is high responsibility.

Where else do you get two "drivers" (pilots) and have auto-pilot once you are up in the air? AND get pretty girls serving drinks to you. haha.

Oh yeah, and not forgetting those private 'induction programmes' for young nubile stewardesses.
