".......Private sectors are urged to increase salary scale due to the higher living cost in Malaysia...". Caught that on Hitz FM this morning. It can't be MORE appropriate. Private sectors have time and again bullied the rakyat, forcing us to accept a sometimes ridiculous salary what with the higher cost of living here. Can barely pay for a decent meal these days. RM1300 for a fresh grad? To do the work of 3?4?5? And then there are those execs who do not get Overtime allowances despite working round the clock way over midnight. This is a form of abuse happening in all companies, big or small. It really aggravates me even more when those politically-wiser most often than not are the 'older' staff gets paid more, while we are doing the shit for them! What about the clause in the appointment letter that says "Job responsibility- yadayada...AND whatever that is required from your superior or management"......unlimited abuse I would say! My philosophy is that I will do any shit for you as long as I'm paid reasonably. If I'm doing the Senior Manager's shit, give me his salary- Fk the title.
