Malaysia's Hotel Service Charge Issue Heats Up
Thailand's neighbor Malaysia is seeing a hot debate in the private and public sector over the possible abolition of service charge.
The trigger for the controversy was the implementation of a 6% GST (goods and services tax) effective from April 1st of this year.
Trade unions in the service sector in the country are contesting a possible move to eliminate the service charge concept.
Here in Thailand most travelers are aware of the plus plus concept with one of the plus's being service charge.
