They buat populist policies.
They give away what is not theirs. For example they increase maternity leave from 60 days to 90 days.
Which employer likes to pay gaji buta for THREE MONTHS? Women will now suffer even more discrimination. Employers will not want to hire as many women. Especially child bearing and married women.
The question is, kaum yang mana yang paling ramai melahirkan anak ? Chinese, Indian or Malay / bumiputra? Jawapan betul : Malay / bumiputra women.
The ‘memperbanyakkan ummah’, ‘anak bawa rezeki’ and other such beliefs leads them to have many children. Some may have a baby in January and another baby in December.
Employers will be wary of this group.
Unemployment rates among this group will increase.
Melayu miskin dulu.
