BREAKING: Malaysia’s Ministers Will Be Taking A Two-Month Pay Cut
We are currently on day 9 of the Movement Control Order (MCO) that was announced by our Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, last week. It commenced on 18 March 2020.
In a series of regular updates, we have been told that there are positive COVID-19 cases still being reported at hospitals and by frontliners.
Today, the Prime Minister’s office announced that the Ministers will be taking a two-month pay cut and instead, that money will be channelled towards the COVID-19 Fund.
