Absorbing Contract Workers Into The Public Sector

The vulnerability of contract workers is in the spotlight, as Opposition MPs and NGOs like JPKK call for the government to absorb them into the civil service to better protect their rights. We speak to Sivaranjani Manickam about difficulties these workers face, and speak to Professor Dr. Rajah Rasiah for his views.
