He was speaking to reporters after officiating the Karak Health Camp at the Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Karak Setia here today.

Kula Segaran said this in response to the Malaysian Youth Council (MBM)’s request for the the Pakatan Harapan government to raise the minimum wage to RM1,500 to ease the burden borne by the people, especially the younger generation.

MBM president, Jufitri Joha, was reported to have said that the increase should be implemented as the current minimum wage of RM1,100 was inadequate. – Bernama
