The Johor Ruler said that following the move to change the state's weekly off days recently, there have been complaints especially from parents working in the private sector.
"Parents working in the private sector have been complaining that they do not have enough time to spend with their children as they are forced to work on Friday.
"Due to this, I urge the state Government to study the suitability of synchronising the off days to Friday and Saturday for all sectors," he said when opening the second sitting of the state assembly on Thursday.
The state changed its rest days to Friday and Saturday from Jan 1 this year following the Ruler's announcement at his investiture ceremony in conjunction with his 55th birthday celebrations in November last year.
