Human Resources (HR) Minister, Datuk Seri M. Saravanan today said that Malaysians should not settle for minimum wage employments as they have better paying work options through the booming gig economy in our country. As reported by Malay Mail, Saravanan stressed that the job market is now no longer set by employers.

This is because those looking for work have more options to choose from rather than settling for a minimum wage pay. The HR Minister asserted,

“Let’s see the bigger picture, there’s no more employers’ market. Today, anyone can drive a Grab and get RM2,000, so why work for RM1,200 or RM1,500?”

Speaking of minimum wage, the HR Minister also elaborated that some employers and industry players have agreed to the minimum wage policy. As reported by national news agency Bernama, this is despite several industry players including restaurant owners and manufacturing associations had asked the government to give them time to adapt to the current situation before implementing the minimum wage policy.

Saravanan further said that the government was working towards creating 600,000 job opportunities in the country.Previously on 19 March, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that the government had agreed to increase the minimum wage to RM1,500 per month which would be implemented on May 1.
