Three weeks ago, the government announced that paid internships are compulsory in all ministries and government agencies. Following that, there’s now been an even better development to the #paidinternship movement.

Yesterday (16th August 2019), Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq announced via social media that the internship allowance in government sectors and ministries will be increased from RM300 to RM900. Wow, that’s nice! 

His tweet, which now, has over 19,000 shares was accompanied by a caption that read,

“The government has agreed to increase the allowance of #PaidInternship in government ministries/agencies/sectors from RM300 to RM900 (RM5 per hour). We did it!”
