    If you earn 1 million (maybe people like LKY), then you get half a million, wow that's a lot man.

    This year's mid bonus is 0.4 month plus $200. It's 0.1 month lesser than last year, but for those lower income civil servants their 0.1 is not as much as the $200 one time payment the government is giving this time round. So this year's objective for the government is to give more focus to the lower income earners (<2k/mth).

    Well, the year before, it's only 0.25 mths. So this year is considered quite generous liao. Frankly, I'm quite happy with the payout. But just a cheek-in-tongue, all my Deputy Directors and Directors are earning five figures salaries. In comparison, I'm considered a lower income earner.

    Hey hey! I'm not a HOD lah ... not officially at least.

    S$8000? Then I'd have bought a 1Ds MKII, EF 400mm L f/2.8 IS ...

    I'll be lucky if I can draw that kind of pay when I retire ...

    i wonder which is more incredible, a young teacher like AG earning $8k a month or people thinking he earns $8k a month. Think about it, if he's earning $8k now, that means when he retires, he'll probably retire at $20k a month

    Vice Principal definitely is Div 1 officer. Minimum Grade 1 or Superscale H officer. Yeah, min salary should be $8K. Cool, man...

    Hi.

    I think I need to clear things up.

    1. Division 1 officers - As long you have a recognized degree, you are placed in this division. The starting pay is comparable to what you see in the papers, i.e. $1k plus upwards.

    2. VPs as Superscale officers? From my experience, it's unheard of. Even for Ps to achieve that has been quite rare ...

    3. I only joined MOE officially in July 1999 and I'm defintely not a high flyer so you can fill in the blanks ...

    Can't say anything more or I'll get into trouble so please leave me alone ... I want to sleep now and dream that I'm actually drawing S$8k a month ...

    Seriously, how much is enuff these days... Everything in singapore is generally ex. Well, just name 2 things enuff already.. a tiny HDB flat and car. U can spend yr whole life slogging at work to pay off the bills.

    $8k is peanuts really. Most of the senior registrars (medical specialists) in my dept earn about that amount, and they are in the 34-36 age group. And of cos... no one ever said money is enouff! Whatever u earn, u want more....

    Hrmm... a big portion of singaporeans are learning less then 1.5k, quite a lot getting few hundreds, so what are we complaining here?

    Yet to include those who are still jobless...
