Jobs and financial security top Malaysian youth’s concerns

07-May-2021, PETALING JAYA – Financial and employment issues were the two most critical problems faced by young Malaysians in a recent survey by the Merdeka Center.

In the survey conducted between 19th February and 20th March 2021, 29% said financial difficulties and constraints were the main problems they faced today while 13% mentioned getting jobs were their main problem. Others, particularly those still in schools and universities raised the issue of e-learning difficulties (8%) and access to internet (6% overall but over 9% among 18-22 years old) as most critical problems they presently face.
