SEPANG (Bernama): The Cabinet will finalise setting the minimum wage for the private sector at its meeting this week or next, says M. Kulasegaran.

The Human Resource Minister said the government would set a uniform starting salary for the private sector in the Peninsula, Sabah and Sarawak.

"The cabinet paper on the proposal has been submitted to the Cabinet. It will come up for deliberation soon, either this week or next week," he said to reporters on Tuesday (Aug 28).

Kulasegaran had earlier given the national contingent to the Asean Skills Competition 2018 in Bangkok a send-off at the KL International Airport.

He said the National Wages Consultative Technical Committee had conducted studies and held discussions with trade unions, employers, NGOs and others. - Bernama
