Ya lo, don't recommend your kids to be doctor/work in healthcare. Grossly underpaid and more importantly under appreciated. Only saving grace is that it is a relative stable and recession proof job I guess.

Gov tech calibre is quite good.
Google facebook amazon netflix pays v well.

But generally gov tech calibre is better than run of mill doctor
So higher pay is expected.

Agreed, females should also serve NS and get the same pay. It can be done, just look at Israel.

Also the freeloader foreigners doctors who come here and take our limited residency/con positions should be made to do 2 years of NS or pay S$500k (equivalent of 2 years pay, without the need to risk life and limb) to work here while Singaporean doctors served NS to keep them safe.

Doctors serve NS is not to keep Singapore safe. It is as cheap doctor labor to do crap medical certification work so that the SAF regulars can hide behind the doctors.

Doesn't make sense for a FT doctor to have a 2 years advantage due to not serving NS over his Singaporean male counterpart?

2 years can make a lot of difference in terms of competition for residency or salary. Why are Singaporean citizens being disadvantaged?

Speaking as a foreign talent here.
Foreigner don't get tax rebate like Singaporeans. There is your advantage.
Foreigner don't get subsidy for education, training etc. There is your advantage.
Your children go to primary school for free. Foreigner have to pay.
Foreigner don't get HDB, housing free BTO subsidy for you Singaporean to become millionaire later when you sell it in open market. There is your advantage.
Foreigner don't get what nonsense free money during general election or what baby nonsense ****. There is your advantage.

Foreigner do all the **** work. Where is all you Singaporean.why Singaporean not laying break and building houses or renovating toilet.
Singaporean only know how to complain. If anything, forefinger pay more taxes to be in this company just so Singaporean can get all this so called subsidy.
Foreifner don't get to buy house have to rent from so called Singaporean giving them free income.

If you have issue, you should be able questioning why Singaporean female don't have to serve like their counterpart male. Woman loves woman rights so much. Equal rights. How about woman start serving as equal and hold their own then.

This covid foreigner also need to work in covid yet only bloody Singaporean get to enjoy voucher to explore Singapore. Using our foreigners paid taxes. Joke.
Foreigner don't get any advantage. We paid for everything to be here
Food. Houses. Taxes. Higher premium. Infrastructure
