    WHAT TALKING YOU LAH NAJIB ? (In Mandarin / Chinese)

    Look, if the company wants to hire someone who can speak mandarin, it doesn't necessary mean ONLY chinese can speak mandarin! (Gosh ! Some can't even)! Anyways, in todays world, Englishmen, Malay, Indians and some other races can even speak mandarin!
    Are you surprised to see Malay parents sending their children to chinese school ? NO I am not cause I have seen it.
    I went to the Klang Starbucks once and there was this Malay girl speaking Mandarin. So is this bias ? Bias against which race !???

    So, if the company wants to hire someone who can speak mandarin because they are dealing with mandarin speaking clients like from Taiwan / China, so, what is the big deal ?

    You should be commenting on advertisements that blatantly pinpoint a particular race eg, "" Wanted employee is "of a PARTICULAR race""

    This bias must stop, Najib tells employers

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    EMPLOYERS should stop imposing restrictive conditions on people seeking work, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak told the Dewan Negara yesterday.

    "When I look at ads (in the newspapers) there are some companies, for example, which put the Mandarin language as one of the requirements," he said.

    "Such a practice indirectly leads to bias when it comes to hiring workers."

    Najib said although it was the right of employers to impose certain conditions, they should be open-minded.

    He was replying to points raised by senators during the debate on the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

    He said the number of graduates from local universities increased from 45,000 in 2000 to 85,000 last year.

    blah blah blah

    I just wanna say that i agree with you... on your point that it shouldn't be an issue/problem that employers set 'the ability to speak mandarin' as a requirement for work.
    There shouldn't be a problem. Coz it's not biased in any bad way.
