Budget 2024: Bridging the Gap Between the Rich & Poor

With the rising cost of living, unaffordable housing, rising inequality and stagnating wages, Malaysians face mounting challenges. This is especially true if you’re working class and middle class. 

With the tabling of Budget 2024 just around the corner, on today’s episode, we will be taking a look at what needs to be addressed in the upcoming budget to bridge the gap between the haves and the have-nots. We speak to Sivarajan Arumugam, Secretary General, Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM).
