KUANTAN: 100 hundred employers nationwide will face stern action if they are found to have not implemented the minimum wage.

Human Resources Deputy Minister, Datuk Ismail Abdul Muttalib said the employers were identified after 600 employees lodged complaints against them since the 2012 National Minimum Wage Order was enforced on January 1, 2014.

"We have warned the employers involved. If they still fail to adhere to the order, they will face stern action from the ministry," he said after opening a 1Malaysia Azam Kerja Career Carnival, here on Sunday.

Under Section 43 of the National Wages Consultative Council Act 2011, employers found guilty of the offence would be fined up to RM20,000 or jailed not exceeding five years.

Ismail said a review of the minimum wage would be made by the government next year.

Meanwhile, he urged graduates and the unemployed to grab the 1,800 job opportunities provided by 30 employers who took part in the carnival, here.

He said some of the participating employers were offering minimum monthly salaries of RM1,000 to RM2,500, depending on the applicants' qualifications.

International Women's Day 2014 - Workers change the world

International Women’s Day (IWD) originated in 1911, when women garment workers in New York held demonstrations protesting against their appalling and dangerous working conditions, after a fire engulfed their factory. On IWD in 1917, Russian women textile workers went on strike. They acted against State, Church and the Bolsheviks but gained wide public support and initiated the Revolution - the Tsar abdicated 4 days later.
Women in the textile and ready made garment industries remain at the forefront of campaigns for health and safety, for decent wages and conditions, and against state repression and tyranny. We need only look to women workers in BangladeshCambodia and Thailand to see these struggles.
The value of women's unpaid housework and community work is estimated to be up to one third of GDP worldwide, or about US$11 trillion. Nearly 70 per cent of the world's 1.3 billion people living in poverty are women. 80 per cent of the world's 27 million refugees are women and children. An estimated 20 million unsafe abortions are performed worldwide every year, resulting in the deaths of 70,000 women. Women still face domestic violence and rape in all countries. Basic rights including free and safe abortion are still illegal in many countries. Women's rights at school and at work are very restricted in Many countries. Equal pay for work of equal value still has not been achieved anywhere.
In cities across the world on 8 March women and men will be marching to advance the fight for women’s rights.

Qantas airline slashes 5,000 jobs in Australia

As part of the ongoing restructure within the global airline industry, Qantas, the Australian national carrier, announced this week that it was going to slash 5,000 jobs over the next three years. Unions in Australia are having meetings with Qantas management and deciding on their response to these job losses. In the meantime, international support is growing. This attack on airline workers in not an isolated case and international action by workers is needed to confront these global companies.
