Foreign worker dominates local factories

This hard disk manufacturer employs 5000 workers is truly an eye opening to me. I wonder these foreign workers constitute how many percentage of their workforce in Johor?

How could Malaysian government approve such huge number of unskilled workers?

In another word, there are another 5000 Malaysians especially Indians who are depriving such job opportunity may end up as snatch thieves, robbers, illegal car park caretakers, etc.

Now they are resorting to riot and asking for better benefits.

Send them home is the best option before their violent protest goes out of control.

5,000 riot over death of worker

JOHOR BARU, Malaysia – About 5,000 foreign workers at an electronics factory in the Tebrau Industrial area here staged a protest yesterday following the death of a colleague.

During the seven-hour stand-off, which started at 7am near the workers’ quarters, the workers from Nepal, India, Myanmar and Bangladesh turned violent and threw chairs and rubbish in protest.

They claimed the worker died because of their employer’s delay in sending him to the hospital.
