The cost of living, especially in Klang Valley is never cheap and it has always been a debate on how much is really enough for a person to survive in the city.
The increase in the price of goods as well as the low wages have made it tough for the low-income group to survive in Klang Valley. Recently, the Twitter page Ekonomi Rakyat shared an infographic on how much an unmarried person with a car should have on a monthly basis to survive in Klang Valley.
“You need RM2,570 to survive with dignity in Klang Valley.”
Anda Perlukan RM2,570 Sebulan Untuk Hidup Bermaruah di Lembah Klanghttps://t.co/8uFyWihBCa pic.twitter.com/ndiQ1OcS7u
— Ekonomi Rakyat (@EkonomiRakyatMY) May 5, 2022

Here’s the breakdown of the amount.
The researchers conducted a focused group discussion in addition to conducting a census of the price of goods in supermarkets or wet markets. Questionnaires were also distributed to find out the spending patterns of the public.
This is a sad infographic
Most of the netizens have expressed their disagreements in the comment sections by pointing out the inaccuracies displayed in the infographic.

“RM370 for house rental? Your head lah! I spent RM400 on a room in a government’s quarters. A room, with 3 housemates. This means it’s RM1,200 for government’s quarters!”
“Your infographic is so sad. If this is the case, the minimum wage will never equate to living wage forever.”
Screenshot 2022 05 06 152743
“You think this is a toilet rental? RM30 for health but you’ll spend the whole day waiting in the government’s clinic. So illogical.”
“RM400-RM500 is enough for a car loan. Just drive a Bezza if your monthly wage is around RM2,500.”
Screenshot 2022 05 06 152437
“Even an MC costs RM40 & above. Are you expecting us to eat bread and instant noodles every day? Even a high school student will know this infographic is far from reality. Not realistic at all!”
In the meantime, a netizen has also expressed their takes on the choice of words used in the post – living with dignity.
Screenshot 2022 05 06 152522
“It’s not that nice to use the word dignity. Earning lesser does not mean you don’t have dignity.”
Why is a dignified life important?
According to Ekonomi Rakyat, this is because an individual not only needs to have enough finances to buy basic goods but also needs to have the ability to engage in social activities in order to live a proper life.
For illustration purposes only
For example, on the weekends, you might want to hang out with your friends and you obviously need to spend to do so. You may also need to save a portion of your income for savings to be used in an emergency.
The cost of living is undoubtedly increasing and at the end of the day, it is all about the pattern of our spending. But do you think an amount of RM2,570 is enough for an unmarried person who owns a vehicle to survive in Klang Valley?
