Improving the lot of farmers/rural folks and the workers!
This is probably the BIGGEST VOTER pull in the federation.|
The days of tricks of seeing Revenue Merchants play on "sentiments", to persuade the citizens to back individual organized cult, class, clan Revenue Merchants. It's common to see Revenue Merchants gaining or losing franchise, monopoly, bank support depending on the "sway" of the voters.
This saw the Kadazan, Iban, Dayak without a major Revenue Merchant group!
While the 2008 or the 12th general election saw Factional reallignment, with clans claiming either city, state power. Thisinclude the Bugis regaining the Selangor state sedc, Patani gaining the Kedah, Kelantan sedc - but failure to gain the crude oil royalty. The Bajau had their Sabah Foundation while the Melanau-Fujien has the Kenanga, Cahya mata companies.
It also allow the Middle Class, particularly the Real Estate Guild to develop properties more efficiently and City Guilds to develop trade to fill the new properties, creating higher paying jobs for workers! Increasing demand for assembly, process and rural products!
The 13th general election should see the Worker, Farmer/Rural classes wishing to improve their lot.
This includes the push for better social security. Prior to 2008, the working class gain the benefit of the federal state implementing a 10% work force limit on foreign migrant workers! This has caused an increased in entry level wage rate, and cause pay increases across the industries and services!
Now, in the 13th, it's time for workers to push for increase VACATION INVESTMENT opportunity. This would be the development of the Port Dickson MEGA resort - which could accommodate M$10,000 units TIME SHARE investment. This will give workers seaside time for holiday rooms or studio or gain return in form of cash to subsidized the NEXT HOLIDAY for the year!
Already in Malayan Federation, we have 401(k) type investment in form of the EPF (employee provident fund), and have a range of EMPLOYMENT INSURANCE - SOSCO, which can be increase to support handicap, imfirm and in future -an old age pension for those post 65 years old citizens.
FOR this to occur, the Federation Government needs to be more EFFICIENT, low cost - in order for low tax, higher benefits can be provided to workers, or rural farmer/workers to contribute investment or purchase insurance payments.
