Wage theft is a problem we all know and talk about but rarely see solutions to.

For those of you who may not know, wage theft can come in many forms. From not receiving overtime payments to receiving less than minimum wage, some forms of wage theft can even be difficult to identify. Ultimately, wage theft is when employers, who are often times filthy rich, don’t give their employees what they have rightfully earned.

Netizen, @23Potteh, took to their X (formerly known as Twitter) page to share their discontent with wage theft, and how it has allegedly increased the wage gap between employers and employees in Malaysia.

They wrote, “Not hating them, but I can’t think of their luxurious lifestyles coming from our wage theft. Did you know that Malaysia is the only country where salaries (of employees) have not increased for decades while CEO and politician salaries regularly every year?”

Wage 7

While this may be something that’s prevalent in Malaysia, it appears that this doesn’t just happen in Malaysia as employees in Japan are experiencing similar working environments.

Netizens have since taken to the post to share their agreement over this issue, with some pointing out that the skyrocketing inflation we’re enduring makes the wage theft situation worse (after all, what’s a 1% increment if inflation is at 2%?)

Wage 4

“Bread used to be RM0.50 but now it has increased to RM1.30. But, minimum salaries have remained the same.”
