Never before has a single job offer generated so much debate, but Sakae Sushi's $3,000 salary for dishwashers really seems to have struck a nerve.

The overwhelming question of everyone's mind has been: What is the catch here?

Correspondents Aaron Low and Toh Yong Chuan do the math on the offer to try and make sense of it, but they come to rather different conclusions.

What is your take on this? Who do you agree with? Is the Sakae offer an example of the free market at work? Or is there something there that just doesn't add up for you?
