MALAYSIA:::Buck up, Indian and mamak eateries told

PETALING JAYA: Indian and mamak restaurants must offer better wages and improve working conditions if they want to attract local employees, says the Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC).
MTUC Secretary-General N Gopal Krishnam told FMT the problem was not that locals did not want to work at such jobs, but that the wages and working conditions were not appealing.
He was commenting on MIC President S Subramaniam’s recent revelation that many Indian restaurants were closing down due to a shortage of workers, brought about by the freeze on foreign labour.
