COMPANY MAKES EMPLOYEE SIGN CONTRACT WITH CLAUSE AGAINST JOB-HOPPING

Hi A.S.S.,

This my 3rd week of this job and I flip through my letter of appointment and found this clause:

"If the Employee choose to work for a company in the same industry during this period, he/she shall be liable to pay an amount equivalent to one month’s salary, at the Employee’s last-drawn salary, to the Company, such amount to be considered the opportunity cost of training spent on the Employee."

WHY GOT SUCH THINGS ONE?

So after I quit I cannot work same industry? Then is it I must work in another industry for half a year then can work back my same industry?

Is such things legal under Singapore law? How come they can force employees not to jump ship to another company if they offer better pay and benefits?
