Are delivery jobs suitable for everyone?

In Singapore, most people will strive to enter the professional industries such as medical, law, and banking. These industries usually contain the highest paying jobs and prestige statuses. For those who are less educated, they will take up jobs who are more routine and manual, such as delivery jobs. Delivery jobs do have their pros and cons.

I will state my reasons below. The drone technology, if perfected, is truly more efficient and cheaper than […]
