Concrete Solutions Needed For Labour Woes

The shortage of workers which is still plaguing many local industries. Recently, the Home minister said that employers applying for foreign workers from 15 countries will be able to get their applications approved within three days. This is limited to seven sectors and employers are now precluded from going through pre-conditional hiring qualification and quota eligibility.

For insights, we speak to Datuk Shamsuddin Bardan, Executive Director of Malaysia Employers Federation.
