With migrant workers gone, the market is now cleaner and more attractive to locals, according to Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) Executive Director Datuk Shamsuddin Bardan.
He said, the government has been doing a good job by stopping foreigners from working at wholesale markets in Kuala Lumpur and clearing migrant hot spots in the city.
Employers would save more money if they hire only locals, as they wouldn’t have to deal with levies and legal documents, he told Free Malaysia Today.
Shamsuddin Bardan also warns that more than two million local people are expected to lose their jobs, as many employers are currently borrowing money or using their savings to pay staff’s salaries.
