Many wonder why the office hours are 9am – 6pm in Malaysia, including a 1 hour break. In most other countries, it is regarded as a 9-5 job, which means that the working hours are generally from 9am-5pm including a lunch break.
Netizens condemning 9-6 office hours
The rise of users fighting for a four day work week are also prominent in the comments section. Users state that an extra day is important for office workers to unwind and spend time with their families. This is especially true for those who have kids and both husband and wife are working.
Others state that even the 9-6 job is merely an illusion. Many of those in the corporate industry have to work earlier than their expected time, and come home later than they originally should. Of course, this is done without any extra compensation.
