FMM says still in dark over minimum wage details
KUALA LUMPUR, June 14 — Manufacturers want the government to delay implementing minimum wage until the nuts and bolts of the new legislation are ironed out.
Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) president Tan Sri Yong Poh Kon said that industry had been kept in the dark about details of the new minimum wage law.
“It has not been a very smooth way of implementing policy. Normally, time would be given to adjust their business.
“Now we don’t even know what allowances are included and not included in the minimum wage,” Yong (picture) told reporters today.
“This will have knock-on effects. We need to organise pay rates. The devil is in the details, we cannot look into it until we have all the details,” he said.
