NOW, if you could strip those out of your sample, and look at wealth distribution amongst SGns, that might tell us more.
Okay, not quite so skewed now but $4m+ for the PM and other ministers vs $1,500 for more than a few? There still is an inequality in the spread of the wages, although a great deal I guess has to do with skills. I haven't seen equally qualified SG'ers discriminated against on the salary scales vs foreigners (esp with the somewhat demise of the expat package).
