Minimum wage is RM900

After months of negotiations and discussions, the minimum wage for private sector employees has been set at between RM800 and RM900 per month.

The RM900 or RM4.33 per hour is for employees in the peninsula while the RM800 or RM3.85 per hour is for workers in Sarawak, Sabah and the Federal Territory of Labuan.

It covers employees in all economic sectors except those in the domestic service sector such as maids and gardeners.

The much anticipated minimum wage was announced by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at a special gathering of several thousand private sector employees at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre here last night.
