    Work Issues

    Hi all,

    First post here. Does anyone else feel underpaid and overworked. I love living in HK, been here 14yrs. I am an expat, but not on an expat salary. I 24, and kinda wishing I went to uni and could have returned to HK on an expat salary.

    I dont need a huge amount of money to sustain my lifestyle, but for the hours I work and time I put into my job, I really feel I should be better compensated.

    The obvious answer is going to be "go back to uni", or "look for a new job". I think I just wanted to get that off my chest.

    Anyway, all the best to all!

    That's pretty much the mantra for every twenty-something in the world.

    haha i knew that was coming.

    I feel like taking a chance and doing something risky and going on holiday or something.

    If you have balls of steel to take risks with - become an entrepreneur or partner with one, before its too late and you are not in a situation to take risks.
