Taking Stock Of The State Of Malaysia's Human Resources

Malaysians continue to call for better remuneration as the cost of living continues to accelerate. This comes as the current minimum wage remains markedly below what Bank Negara categorises as a living wage, an income level needed for a household to afford a minimum acceptable living standard. Dr Bawani Lelchumanan, a senior lecturer with the Department of Economics & Finance at Sunway Business School as well as J Solomon, the secretary-general of the National Union of Bank Employees discuss the issues.
