Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M. Saravanan said the current economic downturn is among factors contributing to lower salary of between RM1,000 and RM1,500 being offered to fresh graduates. “We never change the minimum salary (of RM1,200) but in this situation, there are employers who offer jobs to the unemployed. “I suggest that we accept the offered salary instead of being unemployed,” he said.

According to a recent report from the Department of Statistics the majority of graduates entering the job market last year received a monthly salary of between RM1,001 to RM1,500 compared to the average of RM2,001 to RM2,500 recorded in 2019.
