All this talk about financial independence and not a single squeak about serving the public.
If I wanted to serve the public I would have aspired to be a PAP Minister not a Dr.

Got lah I drive Corolla. HDB. I cant afford anything better. But those are my expectations now. Which frankly is sad and unmotivating. But I may be a true hero of the community? Kum sia.

So yes, the expectation that we should be able to afford landed homes is not unreasonable. Why should our generation be treated any differently from yours?
Because the world has changed. Previous gen dun have internet. Wiki. Google. Now have. What expertise you talking?

You silly never change. Hang on to old beliefs. Too bad. Reality sucks.

Lol…. Get off your moral high horse.

Don’t need to paint one entire generation with the same brush.
And anyway, the “Junior doctors” aren’t the first generation of scum in the medical field.
Plenty of similar cheats in the many generations before who pioneered the way by selling codeine cough syrup, selling unnecessary investigations and treatment packages, and aesthetic treatments which can be easily done by beauticians.

And after all, this is a “salary” forum. You are here because you care about salary and finance.

Maybe one way to stop the greed is to only allow super rich people to be drs.
Eg if you do not have net worth in excess of $10m tnhen cannot enter medical school.
Only super rich become drs then they can choose who they want to treat. Can waive fees as they like also since it is not for the money.
Downside is some may finish med school and only see 1 or 2 patients a day.

The super rich definitely do not want to be doctors. Who would want to stick their fingers up another person's rear end?

I think you should read the Psychology of Money. Here: s://..com/watch?v=TJDcGv9OH4Q&t=488s
There will always be a bigger fish.
I said Bungalow, not GCB.

Maybe you don't know the difference, or maybe its time to retire those glasses.
