The economic downturn that the world is facing today has resulted in a much less predictable and fast changing labour market. The work environment now requires participants to have certain skills in addition to their academic qualification to ensure that employees are able to sustain their economic competitiveness. Due to the lack of work related experience and skills some participants are facing difficulties in finding jobs.
In view of that, the Sarawak government through the Chief Minister’s Department has initiated the Capacity Building Programme for Graduates. The Objective of the program is to build capacity of the participants through training and retraining of the participants. It is also to prepare them with the necessary knowledge and skills to increase their employability and marketability in the job market. This programme is part of an effort to meet the demand for skilled workers, participants and professionals required for Sarawak Corridor for Renewable Energy (SCORE).
“The objective of this programme is to undertake capacity building through training and retraining of unemployed graduates.”
Duration of the training program is for 2 years ending in June 2011.
Critic on these State Government Program:-
A deduction of RM2 and RM1 for muslim participant with degree or diploma holders respectively as contribution to Baitulmal.
Let say what Baitul Mal get from participant;
RM 2 (degree holders) and RM 1 (diploma holders)
how much will the Baitul Mal get from participant?
Assumption (let pick the lowest amount),
100 Muslim participant (degree holder2) and 100 Muslim participant (diploma holders)
100 Muslim participant (degree holders) x RM 2 = RM 200
100 Muslim participant (degree holders) x RM 1 = RM 100
Baitul Mal gets RM 300 each month.
let say what Baitul Mal get for 12 month = RM 300 x 12 month = RM 3600
Is the money are use usefully by Baitul Mal?
The graduate that are given;
RM 920 allowance – degree holder. minus EPF. they get about RM 845+ net payment.
RM 720 allowance – degree holder. minus EPF. they get about RM 645+ net payment.
this payment are not worth to the participant due to the living cost that are keep increasing nowadays.
they have to spent in the cost of their petrol, pay back the PTPTN loan (study loan), foods and others expenditure.
The Sarawak States government have to consider to raise their payment.
Their working effort are not worth their payment sometimes.
They have to work hard sometimes to become government and company and become the “servicement”.
but does they effort worth?
CBG Participant just a one of the State Government labotary white rat project?
Please raise the pay Government!
better future for all,
toward Bangsa Malaysia.
