NWCC Begins Today

Three months and counting (exceprt):

25-member wage council to hold first meeting today

PETALING JAYA: The 25-member National Wage Consultative Council will have their first meeting today after their appointment ceremony, bringing the much anticipated discussion about minimum wage into reality.

The minimum wage policy is expected to come into effect at the end of this year despite its initial setbacks.

Human Resources Minister Datuk Dr S. Subramaniam said the 25 members would be appointed into the council today in a simple ceremony at the ministry’s Putrajaya office.

I wonder if there will be any avenue for public feedback, or if the NWCC will use close door sessions. In any case, the long awaited process to implementing a minimum wage(s) for Malaysia has begun.
