Johor MCA and Johor Indian Business Association (JIBA) will collaborate to set up a platform to identify retrenched workers due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and help them to find employment again.
A massive number of Malaysians — I was told 300,000 — have lost their jobs due to the pandemic and border closure.
Johor MCA Government Coordinating Affairs chairman Michael Tay said a task force will also be formed to reach out to the jobseekers and provide them with training, if needed, to get them re-employed in Johor.
Tay said the task force comprises of a team of individuals who were experts in their respective fields and will have their own approach to assist the public in looking for jobs.
“The task force will match the right candidate to the right job and also schedule training and upskilling programmes for the right job seekers. This would make Malaysians less reliant on the Singapore job market,” he said.
