Minimum wage, maximum delay

Effective July 1, the monthly minimum wage will increase from RM800 to RM920 in Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan. This is a welcome announcement for the lower income groups especially with the rising cost of living.

FINALLY the new Minimum Wages Order 2016 has been gazetted. Under the new order, effective July 1, 2016, the monthly minimum wage will increase from RM900 to RM1,000 for peninsular Malaysia and from RM800 to RM920 for Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan.

It is long overdue. Under the minimum wage legislation, the minimum wages shall be reviewed every two years.
