KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 12): A latest study by Khazanah Research Institute, called the School-To-Work Transition Report, has dispelled a number of common perceptions among young working Malaysians, such as young people are "choosy", have "unrealistic wage expectations" and are "asking for too much".
The report, released today, argues that youth should not be considered choosy when most in unskilled and low-skilled jobs are over-educated and their current jobs are not related to their levels or fields of education.
