Important Considerations for Malaysia’s Progressive Wage Policy

The government of Malaysia will be launching the Progressive Wage Policy voluntary pilot programme in June. The policy draws inspiration from Singapore’s Progressive Wage Model, albeit with some key differences. So, what are these key differences and what can Malaysia learn from the successes and flaws of the Singapore model?

Calvin Cheng and Kevin Zhang are two public policy researchers who recently wrote a paper for the Institute of Strategic & International Studies (ISIS) titled Malaysia’s Progressive Wage: A Guide to Policy Design Considerations for Effective Implementation.

We unpack their paper in this episode.
