Fresh Grads’ Salary Expectations: Unreasonable Or Justified?

President of the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF), Datuk Dr Syed Hussain Syed Husman has said that most fresh graduates have high salary expectations and demands that may be difficult for companies to match. This was quoted in a piece written by The Star, which raised the question of whether graduates are being too demanding, or are our starting wages just too low, especially for urban life? We unpacked this loaded question with our listeners, who shared their thoughts and experiences in their first jobs.
