Breaking Singapore’s Workaholic Culture by National University of Singapore
I had just moved to Singapore in Jun 2018. I remember there was a night when I took the subway back home at around 10 PM. Nearly half of the people on the subway were just coming back from work. They all looked tired and sleepy, with heads resting on the railing or lying back on chairs. I was shocked that they got off work so late and became curious about the working conditions of Singaporeans since then.
By collecting Singaporeans' working data, I find that long working hours is a social issue worth discussing. In this infographic, I compared the situation of Singapore and other countries in 2018, also with its historical data. Although the situation is not optimistic, Singapore is still making progress towards a work-life balance.
