The Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) has questioned Putrajaya on the need to bring in 1.5 more million Bangladeshi workers, saying that the exercise went against its policy to have only 15 per cent foreigners in the labour force by 2020.
MTUC secretary-general, N Gopal Kishnam, said there were already 2.1 million documented foreigners in the country, while another four million are believed to be illegal.
