Re: Average salaries in Singapore

It did cross my mind that the salary guide is for expats and would the salary be reduced for residents ? But it doesn't seem like that. It doesn't specifically say this is the salary guide for expats and it also has very junior salary scales as well which might not be filled by expats. Looking at th...
