According to a source, the average salary for a housekeeper in Malaysia is close to RM2,000, which is significantly higher than what the woman has offered.

M’sian were too stunned to speak

This post instantly garnered the attention of netizens, with some left stunned and some questioning the woman for her reasoning behind the offer she made.

“Did she mention the salary wrongly?”

“From 9am to 6pm, RM800 a month, would you take it yourself?”

“The salary for foreign workers is all above RM1500. You only offer RM800??? Who would want to work?”

Another netizen sarcastically commented, offering her RM1000 and questioning whether she would be willing to work instead.
