Starting salaries of graduates

Looking at yesterday's report of the starting salaries of graduates, I feel a sense of envy as compared with them, I am earning so low!
According to the Ministry of Education's Graduate Employment Survey (GES) 2009, most university graduates managed to clinch a full-time permanent job within 6 months of leaving school, its seem they did not feel the brunt of the bleak economic conditions the world witnessed last year.
Now for their starting salaries:
median pay for graduates from a majority of programmes at Singapore's three publicly funded universities: at least $2,500
Median pay for graduates from business, accountancy, economics and arts in each of the three universities: $2,300 and $3,200.

Median pay for National University of Singapore graduates from its Business School's bachelor of business administration honours programme: $3,000
Singapore Management University's economics graduates median income:$3,000while those awarded cum laude and above earned a median salary of $3,200. Those under its accountancy and business management classes were paid a median $2,500 and $2,800, respectively.

Over at Nanyang Technological University, accountancy and business graduates saw a median pay of $2,400 and $2,700.
