MALAYSIA:::MTUC to Zahid: Foreign workers not our problem

The problem of illegal migrant workers is for the government to solve, a unionist said today after deputy prime minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had named the labour, employers and manufacturers federations for registering such workers.
Penang MTUC secretary, K Veeriah, said today: “We are baffled by the DPM’s statement,” and added that the MTUC wondered whether Zahid understood the crux of the matter.
Yesterday, Zahid had suggested that employers should register and legalise illegal migrant workers with the Malaysian Trades Union Congress, Malaysian Employers Federation and the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers.
