Both the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) and the Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) said that social media savvy employees need to be careful what they put online about their employers or risk disciplinary action even dismissal for their words.
There is one caveat however and that is what’s mentioned must be “backed by facts and figures“.
Looks like this rule doesn’t apply to Parliament members when it comes to presenting arguments in the Dewan Rakyat.
In a recent Parliement session, Bandar Kuching Member of Parliament Chong Chieng Jen argued that TM favours UniFi customers of Streamyx. The MP claims that Streamyx subscribers are getting slower speeds after UniFi was launched citing that TM is giving priority to its fiber optic service subscribers.
What logic possessed him to think that his beyond us. According to the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture, Dato’ Joseph Salang, there are over 1.4 million Streamyx subscribers and about 6,000 UniFi subscribers’ and if you have any common sense you’d know that favouring 6,000 over 1.4 million doesn’t make much sense for TM.
What a douchebag.
