With a bed-ridden mother and two disabled siblings, a bank employee joins a picket against her employer's decision to transfer her and her colleagues to different states
KUALA LUMPUR: A sole breadwinner attached with Hong Leong Bank Penang is hoping that she can avoid a transfer to Selangor because of an ailing mother and two disabled siblings.
Ong, in her 20s, was among 300 people who picketed in front of Wisma Hong Leong to protest against the bank’s decision to transfer 50 non-executives from all over country to three centralised locations.
A documentation department staff, Ong is the sole breadwinner in her family. With a bed-ridden mother and two handicapped siblings at home, she can hardly imagine her life away from Penang.
