IPOH: The proposal to increase the minimum wage to RM1,500 will be done in stages and not in one go, says Human Resources Minister M. Kulasegaran.

Speaking to reporters after presenting a wheelchair to some needy folk in Kampung Tawas, Kulasegaran said many people were still confused on the matter.

"A lot of companies will face financial difficulties or go bankrupt if we do so.

"The Cabinet will decide on a rate that will not affect their businesses.

"I have already met with various businessmen and non-governmental organisations on this," Kulasegaran added.

Declining to reveal how much the next jump in minimum wage would be, Kulasegaran said only the Cabinet would decide on it.

"It's not decided by me, but the Cabinet," he added.
