Ensuring That Service Workers Receive Fair Wages

The Federal Court ruled yesterday that hoteliers are not entitled to use the 10% service charge to meet the minimum wage of their workers. We explore the impact of this development with a lawyer, discuss the minimum wage requirement with a union representative, and then look at why we don't have a culture of tipping in Malaysia.
