Regarding income levels in Singapore and Asia in general  February 18, 2013 – 06:06 am


Let me share two things – first the photo attached this message.

Secondly – an article on Yahoo

Quote: ‘Firstly, the pay is really good. For SQ, we can easily hit S$4, 500 a month’

Now, one if the striking features of Singapore life for a person who moved here from US (excluding NY’s Fifth Ave) is a drastic difference in income levels. Gini coefficient for Singapore is way higher comparing to US. Translating into plain English – there are people who make awful amount of money and the rest, for them $4500/mo is ‘really good’.

If you read expat forums, especially opinions of those coming from US, you will get a conclusion – relocating from US to Singapore one should earn no less $180 000/year to afford same quality of life.

If you read further you’d see that 180K is not that high. A recent article showed that >50% of Western expats are earning $220K/year or more. In those forums you will see people with income $15K-20K/mo AND their rent is paid by the company.

Yet again, among locals $4500/mo is ‘really good’.

There should be no surprises that this situation generates anger and resentment among locals. Last week 4000 people protested against government plans for possible increase of population to 6.7 million in 2030. In online forums ‘white trash’, ‘foreign trash’, ‘white baboon’ is a common titles addressed towards foreigners.

Thread Jacked!

Sorry OP, your thread sucked anyways.
Cunninglingust: What diesel truck would you recommend most in the 95-2000 range? I'm pretty close to making this purchase with my business doing well and the little bit of cash I get from selling the 6.2. Looking to spend maybe $5-7k. Not finding much in that range lol.
I... posting lol but you know your diesels and I want to get multiple opinions.
The oil-leakiness you talked about concerns me, a lot of the homes I do are $200k+ and they don't like oil ruining their perfect driveway lol. Of course, they all drive brand new shit. Everything I own now leaks. It looks unprofessional as hell to show up on a job and crawl under the truck to put a mat down.
