    Our next Blue collar generation

    Have anybody notice that our blue collar jobs is dominated by Indonesians, Nepalese, Myammars , illegal Tamils,Bangladeshi and lately Rohingas.

    I was at the atm yesterday and there was a group of twenty foriegners cashing out and one of them told me that they are UNHR refugees and showed me a card.

    There are several eateries, especially the hawker centre in Taman Megah which is fully occupied and run by Nepalese.not mentioning open air coffee shops.

    We have 17000 thousand rohingas and I wonder what happens if they intermarry our citizens ?

    The gahmen approved a precedent for foreign labor influx with ineffective check and balance. Thats why this country is like full of 3 rated bodoh bodoh and blur blur maids. Illegal migrancy is not addressed firmly and effectively thus spoiling out country. We're reaping the whirlwind!
    We have foreigners on bicycles rounding USJ Subang homes offering to cut grass. Should this be happening?..Are they legal workers or not OR are we citizens just to complacent and moreoever just have pity only for these individuals "cari makan"?

    If you visit the stretch of open beach at Batu Ferringhi nearer to Telok Bahang, just before the old Mutiara Hotel, you will see a group of foreigners running a makan stall, at least 10 of them, selling goreng pisang to canned rinks to towels and swimming trunks.... soon they will have enough money and start renting out jet skis too.... or get 2 or 3 horses for horse-riding rental... just you wait!

    Thats the big diff between locals and these hardworking and resourceful foreigners. They can make it whilst little of our own citizens can't. Difference in mentality and mindset I reckon. Thats likely why Malaysia is full of social ills instead. Foreigners pose one set of problems, and our younger generation pose another set of problems.. this country will eventually spiral down the longkang. Already politics is in the gutters. The gutter and the longkang is next to each other.

    i was involved in the 'rescue ops' cholera epidemic in penang during the 90s. ALL the hospitals were jammed packed with mostly penangites vomitting & diarrheaing/lau-saiing at the SAME time. Temporary army beds were laid out in the open area (grass verge, 5-ft way etc) with containers positioned right under the cut-out of the canvas bed (aiyah! to collect the loose watery smelly sai-sai lah!

    The victims of the cholera thingy were suffering big time...I dont recall whether any died or not lah...BUT anyway, the medical people +polis+immigration conducted an island wide exercise to nap the suspected cholera carrier-foreign-workers in the restaurants...guess what?

    Many if not ALL simply vanished! Really *poof* , those 'arrested' and checked for being cholera-carriers (mostly endemic in their own countries) numbered only in the tens...Not hundreds or thousands!

    My take: Be afraid! Be very Afraid! Many restoran workers are not vaccinated, nor carry local council approved disease-free card...now think about those who are newly illegals

    Thats not the point. We are talking about a whole generation of young Malaysians, not people like you and me.

    I think if this job is made available to the local, there will be people taking up the job. I think most of these companies first priority is to hire foreigners.

    Heh!.. you as a local cycle around with grass cutter may get stopped and checked whether you have licence to operate a business or not. Foreigners doing the same thing seems to be everywhere.

    So far the ones I go, its ok..otherwise, believe me, I'll stand up, go right up to the boss at the counter and give a piece of my mind, then walk out. They can keep back the meal.

    it's the same situation all over the world, the same in those developed/developing countries.

    Have a look in UK, how many locals are actually doing the blue collar jobs?
    Their construction sites are full of foreign laborers, Restaurants are filled with foreign workers too, and those washing the dishes? Mostly Asians.

    Have a look back at M'sia, same thing, right?

    It's not the jobs aren't made available to the locals, it is always there. It's just the matter of our youth are too pampered, and usually the pays for the blue collar jobs are just too little and aren't justifiable for the hardships they have to undertake.

    And also we can't really blame the employee for hiring foreigners for the blue collar jobs too, local youngsters will ask for high wages but not as hardworking, while they can hire two foreigners for the wages of one locals, but doing the jobs of 1 1/2 locals. It's still a bargain
