(Kuala Lumpur = Koreanpress) Lee Eun-hee = The RM1,000 minimum wage for Peninsular Malaysia and RM920 for Sabah, Sarawak and the Federal Territory of Labuan, will come into effect on July 1.

PM Datuk Seri NajibRazak said this marked a RM100(11%) increase for the peninsula, and a RM120(15%) increase for Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan. He said the move to increase the minimum wage was part of the government's efforts to create more high-skilled workers who will be the movers of the nation's economy.

Human Resources Ministry secretary general Datuk Seri Adenan Ab Rahman, meanwhile, confirmed that the minimum wage would also cover foreign workers.

Meanwhile, Najib said the government is also mulling the implementation of the Employment Insurance Scheme (SIP) to enhance social coverage for workers and make it easier for employers to do business.

“SIP is geared towards helping those who have been laid off or retrenched in the interim while they are job-hunting. This can help ease their worries and financial woes as a result of losing their jobs,” he said.

PM was speaking at the National Labour Day celebration at the PWTC in KL on May 1.
