as today living standard, plus the inflation rate, the value of $800 is just like $400 12-15 years ago,
I don't understand when every trades/jobs talking about pay increment every year, higher starting salary, performance bonus etc...
how come only photographers rate is always at hentak kaki? and some people still want to cut their own rates?
hello.............. you are not top earner in Singapore leh, you got no fringe benefit, no allowance, no year end bonus, no medical leave, no annual leave, and yet you still need to pay CPF you need to pay tax, why lowering your rate? your brain get short izit?
just charge what you worth, you deserve to be paid decently, you need to make a living, you need to feed your family.
if you can't make a living out of this, it is time for you to move on.
