Datuk Mohamed Aziz (BN-Sri Gading) stopped Deputy Human Resources Minister Datuk Noraini Ahmad in her tracks as she was answering a question on minimum wages and foreign workers.

BN legislators also expressed concerns over the effect of slower growth on wages.
Some are asking the government to now introduce a minimum wage to help Malaysians cope with rising prices.... more.
