The Malaysian Civil Servants
We all know the minute we step inside a government department, we feel like entering another world.
I was reminded recently when I went to the registration department to change address, getting ready to vote in my new area, to kick the corrupt regime into hellfire. This new place needs me more than my present constituent.
This came through email. Food for thought:
1. Number of civil servants in Malaysia
2010-? (Should be more)
During 2000 to 2008, increase of 300,000 or each year 38,151 or each day 104.
2. Money spent on salary / remuneration
2008-RM41.0Billion (or from each tax payer RM22,800)
An increase of a whopping 60% during 3 years only. If it is private company, sure "bungkus"!
3. Population that pays tax 1.8M
Number of civil servants 1.2M
Meaning every 1.5 tax payer support 1 civil servant.
4. Population Vs number of civil servant. (I believe should be one of the highest in the world)
Korea 1.86 %
Indonesia 1.79 %
Laos 1.24 %
Cambodia 1.18 %
