Thanks to all for comments but particularly to Singaporeans such as Merlionct and Caesar148, who help drive an informed debate. A lot of us are comparing job here with job elsewhere with job in Singapore. BUT for some people the choice is no job here/there versus job in Singapore. OR job out of electronics here/there with job in electronics in Singapore. At least firms are showing signs of hiring in Singapore.

Australia,NewZealand,USA,Canada all are safe places.It depends upon you where you live.If you deliberately goto redlight zone they you may have problems otherwise no issues anywhere.

You are living in Asia where labor is cheap, therefore dont expect a big paycheck until you are a rocket scientist.

You must live until you retire.If somebody die before retirement are they going to re-imburse his money he paid for retirement benefits?

Public transport sucks because you have to follow their timetable if you want to catch a bus or train.If you have a car you are to travel yourself as per your own convinenance.

US have very very low taxes as compared to Europe or Canada.US have 17% tax rate GST is around 8% depending upon state to state.You may get an avergae USD$10,000 per month after taxes if u are a good engineer.

I'm an electrical engineering Singaporean who left Singapore to work overseas a couple of years ago. My experience is in consumer electronics circuit design. The reason I left is because employers don't value workers over 40 years of age. The retirement age in Singapore is 55. You are considered over the hill, worn out, when you are past 50. I'm 54. I see myself as having many years more of effective working life as an engineer but the employers in Singapore think otherwise.

Many of my high school classmates are entrepreneurs! (I'm about 27 now) I initially thought the same as you, Mike. But after seeing what my friends are doing, I beg to differ.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
