Our education plays an important role as well. My parents have been telling me since young to study hard, chase paper, get a good job etc. In a way they r right... cos hiring managers make their hiring decisions based on meritocracy (or connections)... they don't hire someone just bcos they r in hardship or they sympathise the job applicant. End of the day, they have an obligation to the company/organisation to hire good and suitable employees (based on cv and interview). There aren't too many not-for-profit or charitable organisations/companies around u know.
yes.. but what happens when everyone is told to study hard, chase paper, get a good job... it just means that following this norm is not going to work anymore in the future if everyone is doing the same thing.. and it is beginning to show now.. getting a degree is not even enough nowadays... after studying for 10-20 over years, still get told to "upgrade" and "upgrade" until you die... boring and stupid life...

tats why it is not hard to see why youngsters sometimes would rather prefer to drive grab/phv or do other things and use that income to do something better/ something else rather than climbing the corporate ladder.. not everyone has the ability or discipline to continuously upgrade themselves to be always ahead of others.. thats why some accept their fate n just work in certain jobs like bus drivers, f&b or retail staff where there may not be as much room to climb..

DW can confirm if this is your profile? It looks suspicious.
