With Labour Day (which is meant to honour and celebrate workers and the importance of their contributions to their country and society) fast approaching, many Malaysian employees are feeling burnt out and tired of earning barely enough to keep up with the rising costs of living.

But, what can they do about this?

The Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) took to their Facebook page to announce that they will be organising a march from from Dataran Maybank towards Dataran Merdeka at 10am on Labour Day (May 1, Wednesday), to demand for a list of things. Though, their main demand is for the government to raise minimum wage to RM2,000 from the current RM1,500.

They wrote, “Today (April 17), the May 1 Committee held a press conference that included information about Labor Day 2024 which will be celebrated soon. In keeping with the gripping cost of living pressure, the theme of this year’s Labour Day celebration is ‘Living Wages’.”

“The main demand this time is to call for the implementation of a ‘Living Wage’ amounting to RM2,000 to enable workers to be able to afford the cost of basic needs.”

 

Here are their other demands: 

  • Creating a Gig Worker Act
  • Recognition of indigenous customary land rights
  • Migrant workers to be given equal rights and protections
  • Stop discrimination based on gender and sexual orientation
  • Declare a climate emergency
  • Repeal the Sedition Act and all laws that restrict people’s freedom

 

Labour Day 3

With that, they invited workers from all walks of life to join them in the march

“This year, the Labour Day march will start from Dataran Maybank towards Dataran Merdeka at 10am. We will update with more information about this march from time to time,” they added.

Do you agree with raising minimum wage to RM2,000? Do feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section.
