Abstract

The arrival of foreign labor in Malaysia is to help meet the shortage of labour of the various economic sectors of the country. Their arrival, if not controlled, will decrease the local population’s employment opportunities. However, the arrival of foreign labour was able to increase the country’s output and reduce the rate of wages in the local labor market. Despite the benefits received by both the sending and receiving countries, many problems arise in the receiving country, Malaysia. This paper will analyze the budget allocated for foreign labor, the trend of the foreign labor’s arrival, the effects of their arrival on employment opportunities of the local people, the benefits received by both sending and the receiving countries. It also discusses effects of wages, and yields some recommendations to maximize the benefits of the entry of foreign labor in Malaysia and steps to be taken to minimize the problems faced by the local people and government of Malaysia.
