This wage level had been recommended by Bank Negara in its 2017 annual report so that workers in urban areas can attain a minimum living standard, said MTUC secretary-general J. Solomon.

  • Does MTUC has even a single member who has run a business before, or any accountants with access to actual business costs in different industries? From telling the govt to outlaw retrenchment during the pandemic to other similarly ridiculous demands, you are alienating employers from engaging with you to solve problems because no one want to engage with someone completely out of touch with reality.
