Tawau: The new Pakatan government has never put a freeze on hiring foreign workers except for Bangladeshi workers. It wants only the best workers sent to Malaysia and not end up a dumping ground for “trash”.
Human Resource Minister M. Kulasegaran said Malaysia is keen to have more capable and knowledgeable foreign workers. A total of 1.9 million legal foreign workers were allowed while many of rest were illegal foreign workers.
He was speaking at a dialogue on labour issues with smallholders, hawkers, business merchants, Tiong Hua community and fishmongers at a conference hall of Tawau Chinese Chamber of Commerce, Friday night. Also present was State Assistant Minister to the Chief Minister, Datuk Jimmy Wong.
