Zahid Hamidi: Government freezes intake of all foreign workers, including Bangladeshis
"We urge all employers to recruit local workers," said Dr Ahmad Zahid, who is also Home Minister, after meeting Army personnel at Kem Muara Tuang here on Friday.
He said the suspension would be in place while the Government reviewed the two-tier levy programme for foreign workers.
Dr Ahmad Zahid added that existing illegal workers in Malaysia would be detained and deported.
