The Federal Territories Ministry plans to offer job opportunities in the Kuala Lumpur Wholesale Market to unemployed youths with a salary of up to RM2,400 per month.
Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa said local workers’ services in the wholesale market was needed in view of the insufficient number of workers since foreigners were no longer allowed to work there.
“We are thinking of bringing our youth to work in a better environment with accommodation and transportation provided, especially when the modern wholesale market is renovated.
Homeless people were being paid about RM 1,400-RM 1,600 in the manufacturing sector
Previously homeless people were being paid about RM1,400 to RM1,600 in the manufacturing sector, Annuar Musa in his Facebook post said that he has negotiated for salaries up to RM2,400 for unemployed youth who want to work in the wholesale market.
“Before this, we managed to find job opportunities for the homeless and this time many young people have lost their jobs and are unemployed due to the Movement Control Order (MCO), so now we are here to help them,” he said.
In addition, several sites have been identified around the capital to build cafeterias, gazebos, small shops, as well as kiosks at bus and LRT stations to provide business opportunities for young people.
