In non-PMET roles, bartenders and baristas earn between $1,550 on the 25th percentile and $2,600 on the 75th percentile, with a median salary of $2,150.

According to reports, between April and July this year, more than 1,800 people found jobs or took on training roles in the food sector through Workforce Singapore's (WSG) programs.

Nearly 80 of them were mid-career individuals who entered the sector through career conversion programs.

For the food manufacturing sub-sector, many of them came from the financial and insurance sector and other sub-sectors of the food manufacturing and wholesale trade, while those who converted to the food services sub-sector mainly came from accommodation and food services, transportation and storage, and administrative and support service activities.
