Urgent Changes Needed To Raise Migrant Worker Protection

Back in March, the government announced that the deadline to hire migrant workers was brought forward to May 31st, instead of September 30th,

And that unused foreign worker quotas would be cancelled after that date. Adrian Pereira, Executive Director, North-South Initiative explains why this deadline was brought forward and if new policies are needed to avoid exploitation since that has an impact on Malaysia's reputation.
