> About 8,000 barbers and hairstylists got divorced due to the movement control order last year, Utusan Malaysia reported.
This was the complaints raised by some of the 80,000 people involved in the barbershop and hair salon industry.
They claimed that divorces would continue to rise, said Malaysian Bumiputera Barbers Association president TN Winda Mohd Tahir.
He has been deluged with calls from members whose spouses complained that there is not enough money to buy basic essentials as their income had dropped by half due to the MCO.
“It’s sad to hear of their household problems and that some of the couples ended up getting a divorce, ” he said.
The problems began during the first MCO last March when almost 40% of barbers, who have about 15,000 to 16,000 workers, decided to close shop as they were unable to pay rent, salaries and other commitments.
“The industry is now undergoing tremendous pressure with the latest MCO, ” Winda said, adding that the members had incurred RM500mil in losses.
