He told the Dewan Rakyat that the decision was made to reduce the dependency on foreign labour.
Awang also said that the government aims to standardise wages to RM1,200 nationwide.
So far, 56 municipalities have adopted the RM1,200 floor wage while others still stick to RM1,100. We will try standardise RM1,200 as the minimum wage, amend the Act and bring it to Parliament, preferably during this term.
