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.

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.

Some of them even said that he only wants to talk about losses, what about his profit on other days?

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.

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. 🤞🏼
