3e Economic Justice

Problem Statement:

Presently, there exists racial discrimination, both retail and institutional. The workplace is one sphere where many young Malaysians (from minority groups) have experienced racial discrimination. Like the glass ceiling experienced by women as a invisible obstacle to their career development, many Malaysians (non-Bumiputera or minorities) also face similar obstacles in their career path.

Value(s) and Belief(s):

What is clear is that the resolution of our problems and the attainment of our aspirations would require an alternative development strategy that is truly caring and just. Broadly, this would entail a non-communal political system and a development strategy centered on notions of equitable distribution of wealth, democracy, justice and spiritual growth. The demands made here are a step in that direction.

Proposal of Solution:

We propose for the creation of an Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, supported by legislation, to ensure and safeguard minorities and women from any kind of discrimination from employers.
