Recently, the news of our extra public holiday made by the Prime Minister had us all in a happy Raya mood.
But, of course, as usual, not everyone will benefit from this last-minute announcement of public holidays as businesses will suffer some losses.
One such business is Mydin. Besides being known for its cheap and wholesale product prices, Mydin is also popular because of its funny and cheeky social media administrator.
The admin would always hop on the latest trend or news and react to it with slick commentaries that will in turn be an effective marketing technique.
One of which is this.
The uniquely cheeky Mydin Twitter account posted a meme about cashiers having to work even though it’s a long weekend.

Isnin cuti ✅

But Mydin’s CEO said they’ll bear losses because of the holiday
In a recent interview by Astro Awani with Mydin’s CEO, Datuk Ameer Ali Mydin, he said that the announcement will make a lot of businesses suffer losses.
He gave an example that Mydin stood to lose RM500,000 due to the last minute holiday announcement, which could have been channelled into the Rahmah Menu initiative.

Netizens don’t agree
However, a lot of people do not agree with Mydin’s CEO. Some of them think that he is only complaining because he has to pay double wages for his workers or grant them paid leaves.
Rugi sebab kena bayar cuti bergaji atau double pay bagi yang bekerja hari Jumaat dan Isnin. Tu je dia nak komplen sebenarnya.— Afiq #NeedAHoliday (@A_Hxrrxz) April 19, 2023
Bukan pasal jualan. Sebab orang tetap beli barang makanan lebih banyak waktu raya. https://t.co/s0USLnQAi4
Some of them even said that he only wants to talk about losses, what about his profit on other days?
tak payah la nak kecoh rugi sgt, keuntungan berlipat kali ganda, setakat sehari je ko tutup or 4 hari je untuk hari raya, ximpact sgt la. setahun keuntungan bersih brapa? lain la company mydin rugi -100 juta setahun smpai xmampu nak baya gaji pekerja tu lain la cite.— Izudin | 🇲🇾 Real Estate (@izudinrealtors) April 18, 2023
Boss boss memang tak suka cuti umum ni. Faham faham je la kenapa 😜— 🏴🏴🏴 (@braindrainbb) April 18, 2023
Rugi kau sehari boleh cover dgn untung kau dlm kurang seminggu.— Afiq Azni (@afiqazni) April 18, 2023
Bila fokuskan kpd yg hilang daripada yg diraih, semuanya jadi buta.
Memang mudah mengulas.
As a lot of people are disagreeing with Mydin CEO’s statement, some of them even targeted Mydin’s active social media admin, asking for his reaction to the situation.
the replies to this tweet exposing how Mydin is manipulating and taking advantage of its employees is not surprising cause this is how the rich stay rich – by exploiting those below them. mana admin Mydin yang active sangat tu takde nak reply pulak? https://t.co/p5XF9eC3iB— Zee Zaki (@_zxezki) April 19, 2023
Somebody is in the hot seat right now…
You could say that the social media admin is in a little pickle right now. Let’s pray for their wellbeing. 🤞🏼
