Singaporean working at Cold Storage as retail assistant paid less than $1,000 monthly.

Being paid this sort of wages is not uncommon in Singapore. Most I would say are being under paid despite their dedication to the company.

A lot of local employers here have this “Everyone is replaceable” attitude and the spike in cheap labor from foreign talents isn’t contributing to the job security factor of these lowly paid staff.

It’s either they work for pittance or be replaced by the next person that is willing to work harder for less. There is always the option of switching to another job that pays better but then again its a vicious cycle.

Until bosses start viewing their businesses from a people stand point and stop focusing on penny pinching in order to save a bit on costs, this problem of under paid and under appreciated workers is here to stay.
