Looking to make some quick cash?

Well, an opportunity is coming up for you in just a month’s time!

Chinese restaurants in Singapore are willing to triple your salary this upcoming Chinese New Year.

Here’s what you need to know about it.

Chinese Restaurants in Singapore Offering Pay Increases

We all know how busy Chinese restaurants can get during the Chinese New Year period.

We ourselves struggle to even get a reservation at our favourite restaurants.

While we continue to deal with that, the restaurants themselves struggle with another issue: having enough staff members to work over the lunar holiday.

Expecting a hike in the number of patrons and a drop in the number of staff during Chinese New Year, several Chinese restaurants are now offering pay increases to appeal to the money-minded among us.

This is also in anticipation of an influx of patrons, given that this Chinese New Year will be the first in a couple of years where we are no longer bound by stringent restrictions imposed due to COVID-19.

Mask off lou hei, who hasn’t missed that?

Some Chinese restaurants, such as Quan Le Yan Seafood and Ban Heng Restaurant, are offering staff a 10 to 15 per cent hike on their salaries to work over the Chinese New Year holiday.

An acclaimed Chinese restaurant chain, Dian Xiao Er, is looking to go even bigger.

Go big or go home, right?
