Hafiz, 34

Saya dilahir dan dibesarkan di sini. Ya, betul bahawa kos barang semakin meningkat. Sememangnya gaji yang tidak seimbang menjadi punca masalah keperitan hidup di tempat  ini. Harap saya, gaji dapat dinaikkanlah Tapi itu sahaja tidak cukup. Kalau boleh, elakkanlah juga cukai-cukai yang membebankan.

I born and raised here.  Yes, it is true that the cost of goods is on the rise. Stagnating wages is main cause of people’s struggle and hardship over here. I do hope that wages do increase. However that alone is not enough. If it is possible, we could also do without some of the burdensome taxes as well.
