While most Malaysians are grateful, appreciative and thankful for the financial handouts and assistance given to them, they are also disappointed that it is pittance, a paltry sum compared to the rising cost of living.

Most Malaysians don’t like this token gesture and really feel that it is adding insult to injury. How are they to manage with this kind of compensation? This is why they are asking the government of the day to create employment.

Malaysians don’t want to live in debt and from hand to mouth. They want to be financially independent and be able to manage on their own so that they can take pride in themselves in being able to make something out of their lives.

Therefore, Malaysians are requesting for income generation projects to be initiated so that they can engage in meaningful employment and live a life of purpose that causes them to be fulfilled and satisfied.

While the welfare and handouts might seem fine for now, it has to be a stop gap measure. The fact is meaningful work has to be created for people to earn a decent living and afford the comforts of life.

The Quality of Life in this country needs to be improved upon and the way forward is to create jobs for all, the youth and also mature age workers who are fit and well. This way Malaysians of all walks of life can lead a productive and useful life.
