The Human Resources Ministry has published a guidebook titled ‘Salary Guide, Starting Salaries for 160 Selected Skill-Based Jobs’ on the implementation of basic starting salary in the country.

Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Abd Muttalib said the 160 jobs, mostly in the technical and vocational education field, would become the main platform to increase skilled workers in the country under the 11th Malaysia Plan (2016-2020).

“The 160 jobs are popular careers which have been the interest of Malaysians.

“For a start, we have distributed 10,000 copies and after this, we will put this book at all UTC (Urban Transformation Centre) branches as a reference for job seekers,” he said after officiating the national-level Job Fair@UTC 2016 programme at the Kuantan UTC here.

Ismail said the guidebook would be updated every two years in line with the review of the Minimum Wages Order and the updated version of it would include more jobs available in the labour market.

He hoped that all employers would implement the recommended starting salaries for skill certificate and diploma graduates.

“A high starting salary is expected to increase the motivation and productivity of employees,” he said. – Bernama
