Emerging Challenges In Prudent Strategies
Emulate Singapore in housing foreign workers, state urged Shah Headan (second right) shaking hands with Dr Ramasamy during a break at the state assembly. THE Penang government got ticked off for failing to arrange for “good and comfortable” settlements for foreign workers. Datuk Shah Headan Ayoob Hussain Shah (BN-Telok Bahang) faulted the state administration for being unable to cater for this while blaming the Federal Government for various foreign worker issues. Shah Headan said the state government should emulate Singapore, which provides fixed settlements for foreign workers. “Thousands of foreign workers in Singapore are housed in complexes, complete with facilities. “It becomes the state’s responsibility to monitor and control them,” he told reporters at the state assembly yesterday. He also hit out at Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy (DAP-Perai) for “blaming” the Federal Government over the influx of foreign labour in the state. He said Dr Ramasamy pointed fingers at the Federal Government for policies and guidelines on foreign labour that were “kelam kabut” (chaotic). He said while the entry of foreign labour was under the Federal Government’s jurisdiction, Penang could come up with its own guidelines.
