Contracts of foreign workers do not stipulate a probation period as workers have already been interviewed on their capability to fulfil their job requirements, points out the MTUC.
The government has awarded hefty pay hikes to civil servants, but
private sector workers have been forgotten, say Syed Shahir bin Syed Mohamud and G Rajasekaran. The MTUC is proposing a
minimum wage of RM900 and a cost of living allowance (Cola) of RM300, but so far there has been no response from the government. Think of that as you go out to vote.
