Two separate surveys show majority of S'poreans hate their jobs & won't hesitate to report others to the authorities

It's comforting to know that I'm surrounded by people like that.

According to a survey released on June 17, 46 percent of employees in Singapore say they are not satisfied in their current job.

Furthermore, some 75 percent say they view their job only as a way to put food on the table and nothing more.

The majority also said they would not hesitate to change jobs if they could:

- make more money (80 per cent)

- improve their career opportunities (78 per cent) or

- if they found a job that better matched their educational backgrounds (71 per cent).

This study was conducted between April 16 and May 6 via an online questionnaire of respondents aged 18-65, with a minimal sample size of 400 interviews per country.

And in another survey of 3,128 respondents on race, language and religion, nearly four in 10 felt that increasing religiosity could harm religious harmony in Singapore.

Some 65.2 percent of respondents strongly agreed that they will report to the relevant authorities when they see or receive materials criticising other religious or racial beliefs.

This survey by the Institute of Policy Studies, however, was conducted quite some time ago between December 2012 and April 2013.
