Malaysia - Cleaners losing hope for unpaid wages

In a case that dates back to 2015, 51 school cleaners with government schools in the city of Ipoh, Malaysia, are still waiting the backpayment of 8 months of wages. Their dispute first started when the company they were working for, Time Medi, collapsed in July 2015. The cleaners were told to keep working by the local education department and assured that their wages would be forthcoming. After more than 18 months, the education department has still not paid these workers the money that is owed to them.
