The wages of fresh graduates in Malaysia had been stagnant for many years now, despite several complaints from these graduates that say it does not reflect the living wage in the city.

Meanwhile, PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli took to his Twitter account to share how he did something that most businesses are reluctant to do — offering better pay for fresh graduates.

In a tweet responding to a netizen who asked him how much he pays his fresh graduates, Rafizi said he is paying his fresh university graduate salaries as high as RM3,200.

“Fresh graduate – starting salary RM3,200. Increment for the last 3 years averaged from 8% to 10%, a minimum of 6% and can go as high as 20%. I’m the only one who won’t get any salary increments,” he said.

Rafizi served as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Pandan from May 2013 to May 2018, is also on the board of directors and founder of a digital marketing company called INVOKE.

Meanwhile, his claim was acknowledged by Twitter user Zahin Zulkipli, who replied to the tweet saying, “I can verify this. Haha.”

Good paymaster

According to The Vocket, Zahin is an employee at INVOKE and he works as a software engineer under Rafizi Ramli. At the same time, many other INVOKE employees joined the threat and confirmed that the claim is true.

In the comment section, netizens praised Rafizi for being a responsible employer that takes care of his employees’ pockets. Some netizens also pointed out how most Malaysian do not get this pay despite having worked for years.

“That’s a lot. One can only get that salary after working for 5 years,” a netizen said.

“I’ve been working three years with an RM3,000 wage. I’m not a fresh graduate and have 10 years of working experience,” another netizen said.

Nonetheless, many netizens also expressed interest to work with Rafizi under his company.
