In Hard at Work, 60 people talk about work and life in Singapore. The interviews span age, ethnicity and careers: baristas, Thai disco dancers, tissue vendors, academic ghost-writers and more share their stories.

These stories, co-authored by Ng Shi Wen and Gerard Sasges, reveal Singapore as a place where people work hard to survive and sometimes thrive. The book offers readers a unique opportunity to look beyond the nation’s iconic skyline to explore the diverse experiences of work and life in Singapore today.
