Compiled by TAN SIN CHOW, NURBAITI HAMDAN and A. RAMAN

THE Government should cancel the permits issued for foreign workers who have yet to enter into the country, Malaysia Nanban reported.

Quoting Malaysian Trade Union Congress (MTUC) secretary general G. Rajasekaran, the report said the job opportunities could be opened to Malaysians in view of the current world economic crisis.

He said there would be at least 30,000 job vacancies available each month if the inflow of foreign workers was stopped.

He said with 227 employment agencies nationwide, more foreign workers were being brought in and this created more social problems. He added that due to the economic crisis, it is expected that the unemployment rate will rise from 3.6% to 4%, or 5%.
