If you’re a frequent Twitter user, chances are you’ve come across this job advertisement from Pos Malaysia that recently began to circulate among netizens.

In November 2017, a large number of postmen in Cheras quit their jobs at the same time because their RM1,400 salaries were not enough to make ends meet. Top that meager salary with the intense work of delivering to approximately 100,000 addresses for 7 hours a day, 5 days a week, and you’re bound to have unhappy workers who will resign in search of better opportunities.

Fast forward to the present day, and it looks like the salaries of postmen is still a topic of mass debate. Malaysians were shocked at the salary Pos Malaysia had offered to pay postmen, couriers, and drivers for their services, which was a mere RM1,300, as shown in their job advertisement. 

Apart from the salary, Pos Malaysia also listed out the following as benefits of working for the national postal service;

  • A permanent job
  • EPF and SOCSO contributions, along with bonuses (depending on eligibility)
  • Uniform
  • Accessible medical treatment facilities

Many Malaysians on Twitter, however, thought the salary and benefits that were being offered did not make up for the amount of workload people working in the postal service industry have to carry out on a daily basis.

While some netizens voiced their disapproval over the salary being offered, others argued that this was actually a reasonable amount.
