Satchithananthan and Logeswaran of Taiping: two brothers; victims of extrajudicial killings

Labour Day : Minimum wage of RM 1,300.00 per month in all sectors and for all including the Indians.

Yesterday marked Labour Day in recognition of the sacrifices and contribution of especially the Indian labour in Malaysia who in those days literally worked with their bare hands to build the Railways ,roads, bridges , work in interior rubber estates etc. Indian labour has been and is crucial in what Malaysia has become today , the wealthy prosperous country with the world’s tallest twin towers. This is the reason why UMNO in most of Malaysia’s 53 year history has made an Indian the labour minster to perform the Indian Mandore duties to UMNO . The present day labour Minister is Dr.Subramaniam . Similarly in all of the state Exco positions in Kedah , Penang , Perak , Selangor , Johor and N.Sembilan.
The Labour portfolio is and has always been held by an Indian including by the present day PKR , DAP and PAS state governments in Kedah , Penang Selangor and earlier in Perak ( as if they do not qualify to hold other senior Exco positions).
“ We helped build this city.’ And we helped build Malaysia.
But today after 53 years of independence,especially the Indians are yet to be given a minimum wage.
In point 16 of our 18 point demands to Prime Minister Badawi dated 12/7/2007 we had demanded a basic monthly salary of RM 1,000.00 per month.
With a RM 100.00 monthly increament per year we today after 3 years demand in 2010 RM 1,300.00 per month.
But the Labour Minister is indicating (being selective) proposing “ setting a minimum wage for targeted sectors under the New Economic Model (NEM) electronics , textiles , gloves and furniture industries ( NST 2/5/2010 at page 8)
Why? Because the overwhelming majority of the beneficiaries thereto would be the malay muslims?
And this Indian mandore Labour Minister under UMNOs’directions seems to be permanently “ studying ‘ the minimum wage proposal even after 53 years of independence (The Star 2/5/2010 at page N5).
We have recorded plantation workers in Cameron Highlands earning RM 13.00 per day ( approximately RM 260.00 per month) living in near slave like living conditions. Even lower than the RM18.00 per day earned by the Bangladeshi workers.
Indian dish washers ( as per our February video) earn as low as RM 350.00 per month .
After about a 50 year struggle the plantation workers salary has been set at RM 350.00 per month in 2006 or so.This “insulting”monthly salary is modern day slavery.
On this Labour Day 2010 we call upon the UMNO led One Malay-sian government to pass legislation to set a minimum wage of RM 1,300.00 per month for all workers in particular the Indian workers with effect from 1/5/2010. And with all arrears of wages to be paid backdated and from this date onwards

PKR’s PKNS is Malaysia’s largest housing developer but denies homes to poor Indians (see SH 30/4/2010 at page S25)

But instead PKR gets it’s Indian Exco Mandore to give out hampers to the Indian poor instead of providing them a roof over their heads ( see SH 30 / 4/ 2010 at page S25). This Mandore politics by cheating illusions must end.
Hamper politics hampers Indian upward mobility!
Mock cheques mocks and insults the poor Indians!
End Mandorism!

subject Re: [malaysianequalrights] Lim Guan Eng is a liar and he must resign as the Chief Minister for the lies he is telling the people and for the hounding and brutalization of the poor in Penang.
isent a letter to my wakil rakyat who is a dap guy
saying that we are withdrawing our support to the dap because he had done nothing
for the indians here.
there are six of us in the family
so he lost 6 votes
more than 100 cows sleeping on the road and the mandore says that it is not their problem
lim guan eng can fighjt for the dead people even if it is one chinese
can fight for the malacca chinese cemetry
but this fool will not lift a finger to help the indian in distress
it was lge s action that put the indians in this dilemma
soory dap is also the same as bn
