The Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) will go ahead with a nationwide picket today to demand for a RM900 minimum wage for private sector workers. About 50,000 workers will participate in the picket from 5pm to 6.30pm, said its president Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud yesterday.
This follows the MTUC’s memorandum to the Prime Minister on 18th June. Abdullah Badawi, since coming to power in 2003, has never met MTUC, unlike his predecessors.
