KUALA LUMPUR The government should introduce a ratio system that allows for the hiring of a maximum number of foreign workers in a company based on its total workforce.
This would allow the government to control the number of foreign workers, said Malaysian Trades Union Congress president Datuk Abdul Halim Mansor.
The ratio system, which has been adopted in many countries, including Singapore, would ensure that locals were hired.
In Singapore, for every foreign worker hired, a company must employ 10 locals.
