I am so excited for my sister, who is now married to a Singaporean man. We have enjoyed many family adventures together, and I am so proud to be able to share this journey with her. I am also so thankful that I have been able to do more with my family and friends than I ever could have when I was living in the US.
I’ve been living in Singapore for over a year now, and I can tell you that living in these types of cities is pretty easy. It’s not quite a New York lifestyle, but it’s not too bad either. I love it here.
Singapore is a very cosmopolitan city and as such it’s home to both a rich and a poor majority. Most of the people who live here are either upper middle class, or are at least middle class. In the early 2000s, Singapore was the most expensive city in the world. The average salary was over $100,000 a year, so that’s what they lived on. Not to mention that the average life expectancy was around 60 years.
Its not all glamorous. In the early 2000s, only one in ten Singaporeans had a college degree, and only 10% had a high-school degree. The average Singaporean had only just finished school. In the early 2000s, there was a very high unemployment rate, even in the cities. The people who were really successful tended to have a much higher income than the people who were just making ends meet.
That is definitely an issue in Singapore. While the average income of Singaporeans was relatively high (around $35,000 a year in the early 2000s), the average income of wealthy Singaporeans was much lower than the average income in the early 2000s. The average income of a wealthy Singaporean in the early 2000s was around $50,000 a year, and that didn’t include the salaries of his or her family, friends, and colleagues.
It’s a little scary to think that wealthy people in a city like Singapore are actually paying people to work for them, and I’m not just talking about the wealthy. In a country like Singapore, where there are so many people who have little or no income they want to spend their money on things that are useless (for example, expensive sunglasses), it can be hard for people without much income to make ends meet.
So the question is, what do you do if you want to pay someone to do something for you? And the answer is… you pay them more. In Singapore, you can do this with a regular employee or an independent contractor. The employee will have the same salary as what they actually make, however, the independent contractor will receive a higher salary as well as a benefits package.
It’s important to note that salaries in Singapore are regulated for an economy, like, you know, our economy. If you’re wondering exactly how much more you can make as a programmer in Singapore, see our article on Salary in Singapore. The maximum salary allowed for independent contractors is $1,500 per month. However, the maximum salary for employees in the same position is $8,500 per month.
That said, independent contractors are also legally allowed to take on all the benefits of employees, but not to the same extent. The government does allow employees to take on benefits that employees cannot, like, say, retire at age 65 and buy a house with a wife and kids. While employees are allowed to take on the same benefits as independent contractors, they have to give up more freedoms, like, say, being able to own a car and use it for business.
So yeah, if you’re an independent contractor, you’re allowed to take on all the benefits of an employee, but you must give up more rights. You can’t use your car unless you’re driving for someone else’s company.
