From this source, i know how Mr Mohd Amin Bin Haji Sirat managed to get a job during the Japanese Occupation as Mr Mohd Amin Bin Haji Sirat talks and describes about how he had to work part-time as a ‘coolie’ to help out a shopkeeper to carry his supplies to his shop. That would be his source of income when he first started working, during Grade 6.
SURVIVING ON $2.50 A DAY --- 'When I was 15, I found work as a laboratory assistant to the Japanese who were doing scientific studies on metabolism. With my $2.50 per day wages, I would collect rice rations. We carried them in cigarette tins. That rice was more precious than the wages itself. Sometimes, I would get a whiff of soft, white bread baked fresh in the bakery. These loaves were only for the Japanese. All we had was hardened slabs of cornflour mixed with foul-smelling oil. ' - Mr Tan Hwee Hock
I chose this source because Mr Lee mentions that some of the teenagers had been in a Japanese prisoner of war camp, or worse to have been a member of the Japanese Co-Prosperity Sphere outside their prisoner of war camps, working for their prosperity.
