Its not just "Malaysia Boleh", but now we have "Loyalty Pays", a new term in Sports. I just heard the story of how "Loyalty Pays" became a new phrase in sports. According to many, a particular official wanted to reward an employee in his organization.
So he sees the President and recommends a raise - which is good - and the raise is a hugh jump by any standard. The employee, who used to receive RM3k plus, now gets RM7k plus, a RM4k jump. I have no problem with astrominal increases in salaries and allowance as long as it is done in good faith and those who really worked hard, should receive itu.
People aware of the situation say that the President did not actually know the figure and the jump involved. He was told of a recommentation for a loyal employee. I do not know if the President asked if there were other hard working and sincere people in the organization.
"Loyalty Pays," was what some officials are saying about the big jump and raise. Well from now, instead of screaming "Malaysia Boleh" lets not forget to say "Loyalty Pays". But, loyalty to - nation, organization, sport or individual.
If this story is true, then I congratulate the employee concern for the raise. I also would like to congratulate the official concerned for "doing it again". To the President, I say, Sir, its time for you to vacate your seat.
