Chapter 1

1.0 Introduction

Malaysia is now sing a new epoch of prosperity. The authorities invented and implemented a series of five twelvemonth development programs and laid the foundation for the development in the state. Since the 60s, Malaysia ‘s economic system grew quickly and many occupations were created in the building industry. In the early of 90s, Malaysia is confronting deficiency of labor and there was a deficit of labor in the fabrication industries. The labour deficit so expanded to the building industry.

The economic growing in the past two decennary has led to a higher criterion of life which besides contributed to the locals expostulation to the 3D ( dirty, take downing and unsafe ) sectors, which were finally filled up by unskilled foreign workers. Malaysia is excessively depend on foreign workers, particularly in our services industry or 3D industry.

This does n’t lend much to our economic system as most of the income received by these workers are channelled back to their place states but non utilize in Malaysia. This besides mean there are high hard currency escape.

The authorities see foreign workers as a inexpensive beginning of labor that could heighten the state ‘s export fight had been promoting the deployment of foreign labor in the 1990s.

Prof Datuk Dr Mohamed Ariff of the Malaysian Institute of Economic Research believes that if Malaysia had non allowed the monolithic inflow of foreign workers, local makers would hold been forced to introduce and automatize to hike productiveness to keep their fight. ( Kok, 2011 )

The authorities ‘s attempt in cut downing the state ‘s dependance on low-skilled foreign workers has been ongoing, as evidenced in the gradual decrease in the figure of registered foreign workers over the last two old ages. The mark is to cut down the figure of foreign workers to 1.5 million by 2015.

Many economic experts feel that what Malaysia needs is skilled or extremely skilled workers, non inexpensive, unskilled foreign workers. ( Alan Ting, 2008 )

1.1 Problem Statement

Many foreign workers site nowadays acquiring more and more, as they have a large group, they get downing to do a batch of job, particularly societal and security jobs. Recently from The Star News ( 20th June 2007 ) , happened that a group of alien involved in battles, widespread housebreakings and drug forcing have become a common sight at Klang.

Harmonizing to Ahmad, 1996. To avoid these job happened, Contractor should engage local workers, but local workers are non interested to set about the building works. Contractors argue that they no longer could happen local workers willing to work in building industry because the wages are low. Besides, building industry is viewed by local as 3D ‘s occupation which mean Dirty, Dangerous and Difficult occupation.

Local young person presents has less involvement to work in the building industry. This can impact the velocity of development in building industry. The ground that local work force is non interested on this sector is they think that the occupation is soiled, unsafe and hard to confront. Therefore it consequences the industry are forced to engage foreign workers to maintain the industry develop. ( Shiadri Binti Saleh, 2008 )

Second, the group of foreign workers hired by the industry fundamentally unskilled, so contractor or his adjunct demand to learn and advice the foreign workers while building building. ( P. Larcher, 2001 )

Besides, the unskilled and debatable workers will non merely do hold in project completion but besides cause hapless quality of plants which is non run intoing the industry ‘s skill criterion. ( Bachan Singh, 2011 )

Presents, building companies are larning to pay low rewards frequently consequences in hapless craft, which effects both the quality of the merchandises being produced, every bit good as the company ‘s overall repute. Low-cost labor can interpret into unskilled labor, and in order to stay competitory in today ‘s planetary market, companies must maintain gait with the uninterrupted progresss in engineering. ( Amber Keefer, 2012 )

Poor craft of foreign labor can do defects. Harmonizing to Kurt Arnold, defects are from hapless craft devalue belongings and can take to extra harm to constructions and stuffs. Poor craft is often the root cause of building defects. Even choice edifice merchandises, if installed or used falsely, it may neglect to efficaciously function their intended intents or last every bit long as they are designed to last.

Due to Local immature have less involvement on building industry, CIDB is working hard to pull more local skilled workers. The execution of accredit skilled workers system was to keep a high criterion work force. These workers will acquire higher wages than normal laborers.

1.3 Aim

To analyze the factor that led to the hapless engagement of local labor in the building industry.

1.4 Aims

To place the advantage and disadvantage of hapless engagement of local labor in the building industry.

To find the factors that led to the hapless engagement of local labor in the building industry.

To happen out the schemes to better the engagement of local labor in the building industry.

1.5 Scope of Study

First, the questionnaire will be set out with approximately 30 inquiries and mark to direct out 100 sets.

Then, the respondents that I am taking is Contractor of Malaysia. To acquire a contractor which is easier to confer with and can give more information, it would be Class A contractors. Class A contractors are chosen because the occupation range of them are really broad ( such as largely on substructure ) and the worker or labor require by them are a batch. So we can acquire information about what sort of labor he is utilizing ( local or foreign ) and the ground they choose the type of workers.

I will happen contractor category A at KL country, because largely the substructure undertaking will be holding at that place. Such as MRT undertaking. Kuala Lumpur is a high developing country. So, there are much more infrastructure demand to be completed by contractor category A.

After roll uping the information, so informations will be analyzed by utilizing statistical method to ease us compare and reason the consequence. Finally, decision and recommendation can be make from the overall informations collected and questionnaire.

1.7 Significant of Study

The survey of the subject is chiefly to place the factor that lead to hapless engagement of local worker in building industry, follow by the causes and the solution to pull more local people to the building industry.

This is of import because factor can state us that the job and why the immature today are non interested on building industry. Following, we can cognize causes of the deficiency of engagement of local people in building industry. Such as, it can do the industry over depending on foreign worker. Therefore over hire foreign worker can do a batch of thing to go on, such as, cultural pollution, societal job and even outflow of Malaysia ‘s money. After all of these are identified, so we can happen some solutions to forestall or cut down go oning of these.

Besides, from this survey, it enable me to larn more about Construction industry of Malaysia and the of import of the support from local work force.

Chapter 2

2.1 Introduction

In this chapter, we are discoursing factors of influence the local labor less interested to work in building industry. The thing to be discuss is related to image of a individual, economic system of state, outsourcing of labor through sub-contractor system, deficiency of preparation and accomplishment formation, big figure of foreign workers, hapless site adjustments and services and alteration in instruction.

2.1.1 Skilled Labor

Harmonizing to Investopedia, skilled labor is defined as a section of the work force with a high accomplishment degree that creates important economic value through the work performed ( humad capital ) . Skilled labor is by and large characterised by high instruction or expertness degrees and high rewards. Skilled labour involves complicated undertakings that require specific skill sets, instruction, preparation and experience, and may affect abstract thought.

2.1.2 Semi-Skilled Labour

Based on the account from World English Dictionary, it says that semi-skilled labor is party skilled or trained but non sufficiently to execute specialised work. Semi-skilled worker need some accomplishments to make work but does non necessitate making the complex work.

2.1.3 Unskilled Labor

Investopedia explained that a section of the work force associated with a low accomplishment degree or a limited economic value for the work performed ( human capital ) . Unskilled labor is by and large characterised by low instruction degrees and low rewards. Work that requires no specific instruction or experience is frequently available to workers who fail into the unskilled labor.

2.2 Construction in the Eyes of Local Workforce.

Evidence from different topographic point of the universe indicate that building workers do non see thier employment in a really favourable visible radiation. Construction is viewed by about everyplace as a low position occupation. In many other states, either rich or hapless, people work in building out of necessity and non out of pick. Almost universally they wish for better things for their following coevals. ( ILO,2001 )

In building industry, a batch of workers with different degree such as skilled labor, semi-skilled and unskilled labor. But most of the people view building industry as soiled occupation every bit good as unsafe occupations. Some even said the building industry is unattractive occupation. ( Nazib Faizal, 2012 )

In Malaysia, immature work force would instead unemployed than work in the building industry. Official estimations put foreign labors at 80 % of the full building work force in 1992 ( Abdul Aziz, 2001 )

2.3 The Factors of Local Workforce Less Interested in Construction

2.3.1 Poor Image in the Eyes of Workforce

Local immature coevals work force has a hapless position to building industry. They merely thought that the nature of work of building is soiled, hard and unsafe. But the existent ground why building work is so ill regarded has much more to make with the term on which labor is recruited than the nature itself. For many building workers around the universe the term of employment have ever been hapless ( ILO,2001 )

In Malaysia, accidents on building sites ever happened. Such as, sometimes we can hear or saw the intelligence about site accident due to nature catastrophe ( soil eroding ) that caused workers earnestly injured or even dead.

Accidents on Construction sites are excessively common that everyone has come to accept them as an ineluctable feature of the industry. This state of affairs is attribute to the insouciant footings of employment, the committedness of illegal foreign workers and the non-coverage of workers under state insurance strategy ( Abdul Aziz,1995 )

Following, ground of Malaysian are non willing to take up this occupation because it is danger to personal safety by building work. Statisticss from the societal Security Organisation ( SOCSO ) showed that on the norm, 5,000 accidents occurred in building sites yearly between 2000 and 2004. This figure stands about 5 % to 6.5 % of the entire figure of accident reported over the period. An norm of 80 workers was killed in such accidents ( Fong Chan Onn, 2006 )

Based on the review which conducted by Department of Safety and Health ( DOSH ) , they found out that the major factor of accidents happened at site is contributed by deficiency of consciousness on safety and wellness. They rate the safety and wellness of the building site is non carry through the satisfaction. Besides, frequently, workers are non comply with the regulations and ordinances of safety and wellness at the sites. This can do much more serious hurt or even depth happen.

During accidents happen at the building site, the workers are non merely the 1 who injured, but besides may do injured or decease to the populace. So, all of these accidents had spoiled the image of building industry.

2.3.2 Lack of Training and Skill Formation

In building industry, immature, educated and experience workers are difficult to happen. This is because presents, immature work force has less experience and low accomplishment. This is contributed by when they are in college or university, school provide less practical to them alternatively of theory. Even though pupils are provide to industrial preparation, but they can non larn so much due to few grounds. First, industrial preparation period is excessively short which they can non pull off to larn everything. Secondly is, the senior are unable to thrust trainee ‘s work as they are inexperience. Seniors worry that trainee ‘s work, so they do non make bold to give heavy responsibility to trainee. Third, Senior workers are excessively busy with their work which caused they have no clip to learn the trainee. All of these are contribute to hapless accomplishment of immature coevals.

In Malaysia, the job that frequently sighted is the passing of accomplishments through informal apprenticeship is frequently kept within household, kin or folk and when fortunes dictate that accomplishments should be transferred to foreigners they may be some dilution, with non all skilled passed on ( Abdul Aziz,2001 )

For Malaysian, they ever change company when they are offered with higher wage. So, the company has to engage new workers and re-train them. Training workers are really dearly-won and clip consuming. So when contractor is offering for a undertaking, he might raise the monetary value of their commands which could do the contractor unable to vie with others.

2.3.3 Unattractive Jobs

The other ground of local immature work forces are non attracted by this occupation is because there are already a batch of foreign workers making this occupation. The image of this occupation is already spoiled by the foreign because aliens are usually with low accomplishments and hapless educational background. So, local immature work force might believe that they were hired as unskilled and low instruction, hence, they do non desire to be look down by other friends and parents. This caused the local refused to fall in building industry. As the consequence, building industry demand to engage more foreign workers to maintain traveling frontward.

In Malaysia, official estimations put foreign labors at 80 % of full building work force in 1992 ( Abdul Aziz,2001 )

This state of affairs once more will do the full building industry deficiency of local workers.

2.3.4 Poor Site Accommodations and Services

In Malaysia ‘s building industry, contractor has a common pattern which is supplying impermanent adjustment on the site for workers to remain. The impermanent adjustment is normally made up from lumber and Zn. This type of adjustment was less contributing to most of the Malayan Workers. This is besides one of the ground why Malayan workers are shying off from the building sector and see employment in the building sector as non dignified sufficiency ( CIDB News, 2009 )

Besides, the services and installations at sites provided by some contractors are non good plenty.

2.3.5 Low Salary

In Malaysia, the wage for site labor are consider low. Because in building industry, they hired excessively many foreign workers which is wage in really low rate. But Local work force are bespeaking higher wage. In this instance, contractor would instead engage foreign workers as they accept low wage.

As for the demand in high wage, local workers were lured abroad state such as Singapore, Taiwan and Japan. There is where they were paid a much more higher wage based on their accomplishments. This is the ground of our building industry relied on foreign work force. Factors Influenced The Labour Salary

( 1 ) Location

Location can act upon the wage of labor. For the topographic point such as metropolis country that has more undertakings particularly infrastructure undertaking, the demand of labors are higher compared to rural country which have less undertaking. Since the metropolis country has higher populating criterion, the sum of money used per twenty-four hours besides high. So for the metropolis labor, local work force can non accept such low wage offered in building industry in metropolis country. Unlike, rural country labor can accept low wage, because their living criterion are lower which do non necessitate high wage.

( 2 ) Competition among the contractors

Contractors receive a undertaking by tendering, to win a stamp, their stamp pricing must more sensible low. Normally, Client would wish to hold a lower cost undertaking. So, for the contractor to able to vie with others, they will foremost take down their building cost by cut downing labors salary.

( 3 ) Risky Project

For every undertaking, there is hazard in between. For larger undertaking or higher edifice, the hazard will be higher since it face to more proficient machinery and higher floor degree when workers are making their work. Such as higher edifice demand higher staging, therefore it is more unsafe when it goes higher. So to forestall contractor from losing more money from accident, contractor therefore bargain insurance to cover the workers.

Beside, contractor need high skilled workers to manage a much more unsafe state of affairs. High skilled workers are much more expensive compared to unskilled or semi skilled workers. All of these are impacting the cost of labor and cost of building.

( 4 ) Labours Market

For most of the local labor can non carry through domestic demands such as the working continuance, non lasting under sunshine, and staying power is non that good. Thus authorities allow foreign labor to be imported to carry through the demand of constrcution industry. This is because foreign labors such as Indonesian, they are more lasting under the Sun and have good staying power and significantly they can accept low rewards. In this state of affairs, foreign labor pay is much lower than the local labor, therefore many contractor take foreign worker to cut down their rewards disbursals.

2.4 Advantages and Disadvantages of Poor Participation of Local Labour

2.4.1 Advantages of Poor Participation of Local Labour

In recent old ages, there has been a large job that the foreign workers have caused economic jobs in Malaysia. However, it is non to reject the positive impacts of foreign labor on economic issues. Assuming that there are many jobs the groundss, ( Chan & A ; Moha, 1998 ) indicated that there are besides direct and positive impacts of the foreign workers.

The foreign workers have benefited in the income development. Foreign workers were vastly good to the economic system. This shows the positive quantitative part of foreign workers to Malaysian ‘s economic growing. The deductions of foreign workers on the Malayan economic system have been immense particularly since the late 1980 ‘s ( Zehadul et al, 1999 )

Wage construction is one of the important function in keeping lower pay degrees. This besides indicated Sidney ( 1996 ) , foreign labor offer an eternal watercourse of inexpensive labor that can maintain rewards low and growing high.

By and large talking, foreign workers contribute to the economic system by providing a cheaper labour force. As a affair of fact, foreign workers normally receive a lower wage than local workers and the difference can assist to keep the lessening in production cost.

As stated by Oleg ( 2002 ) that the pulling inexpensive work force means cutting production costs, therefore the production cost for building development is kept low which is an advantage in the foreign workers.

Malaysia, which have earnestly deficits of work force in building industry, by importing of foreign workers could minimise the work force deficit job. The supply of this extra labor force fulfilled the pressing demand for labor which could non be met so rapidly and at a “ cheaper rate ”

Here, significantly the foreign workers accepted those occupations which are rejected by the local workers particularly the building occupations that known as 3D ‘s occupation. Furthermore, if we assume that the foreign workers are every bit productive as the local workers, one can safely state that foreign workers make net positive parts.

It has already been brought to our notice that the value added of dollar spent on labor in Malaysia is about 5 times in the fabrication sector ( Ghosh, 1998 ) . If this is true, so there are sufficient positive value-added effects of foreign workers in the Malaysia economic system.

2.4.2 Disadvantages of Poor Participation of Local Labour Hiring Foreign Labour in Construction Industry and The Impacts

Poor engagement of local labor can caused the contractor is being forced to engage foreign labor. Generally, local people tend to experience that foreign workers are lending jobs in the state and economic system.

Malaysia Construction industry houses were sing assorted jobs due to foreign labor. Recently, the job of foreign labor in building industry is as follow:

a ) Cultural Pollution

Most foreign workers are peaceable. They want to gain money to direct fatherland for their household. In most instances, concern over foreign labor is linked to anxiousnesss over what some have characterised as cultural pollution and over foreignisation ( Weiner, 1990 ) .

They may alter the cultural and societal orders of the normal pattern of the locals in building industry.

B ) Social Problem

Legal and illegal foreign labor besides contribute to many societal jobs and do the impacts on the locals. They create many societal jobs like spread of diseases, larceny, robbery, cheating, violent deaths, illegal colony and so on. They form mobs. If there are no mobs, legal and illegal immigrants can non get in Malaysia.

Harmonizing to Tey ( 1997 ) , as shown by unpublised constabulary records at the constabulary central office in Bukit Aman, between 1985 and 1991, foreign labor accounted for between 14.7 % and 18.2 % of all slayings commited in the state. The figure for pack roberry was between 32.7 % to 48.2 % .

degree Celsius ) Economic Issues

The foreign workers have an impact on the pay construction, labour market, competition with locals. Another perceived bad impact is the high remittals sent out by foreign workers to their place states.

Foreign workers besides thought to be responsible for the higher rate of rising prices because of their increased demand. They enjoy public goods without paying revenue enhancements and user fees. As such they become free-riders in the Malaysia economic system. They are ensured wellness and other installations with free.

However it can non be rejected that the usage of impermanent foreign labor enables the quickly turning economic sciences and societies to carry through manpower demands in dead-end, low position, low pay sectors of the economic system such as building sectors ( Zehadulet al, 1999 ) .

vitamin D ) Low Wages for Local Workers and Taking occupations off from Locals

Women ‘s Workers Association President Silam Hassan ( 2004 ) Claimed the job of foreign workers stemmed from the Government ‘s “ unfastened policy ” which drew big Numberss of foreigners to the extent that local workers had compete with them for occupations. As a consequence of the influx of foreign workers in the building industry, the pay rate for local workers has gone down at the same time.

Because of hapless engagement of local workers, the foreign workers are easy taking over the work from locals. In building industry, the foreign worker traveling into sub-contracting work, where there is a batch of money to be made. Besides, the presence of illegals create jobs besides since illegals are non limitted by regulations and ordinances and are free to infiltrate into any occupations so long as the employers are willing to accept them.

vitamin E ) Foreign Labour Caused Works Delay

Construction industry is labour intensive industry, but due to hapless engagement of local labors, building industry is depending on big figure of foreign labor. Harmonizing to Economic Report 2003/2004, The new Immigration Act 1995/63 ( Amendment 2002 ) , which came into consequence on 1st August 2002, approximately 318,300 illegal immigrants were deported in 2002. This has caused building activities in all phases to decelerate down. Consequently, there was a labour crunch that cause dearly-won work holds.

In a move intended to cut down dependance on foreign labor and increase employment chances for locals, the authorities has shortened the cogency period of work licenses to 3 old ages. The policy alteration will earnestly impact human resource planning in building industry and caused hold of plants.

degree Fahrenheits ) Low Productivity and quality due clip devouring to develop new workers

In the decrease of the continuance of work licenses for foreign workers from 6 or 7 old ages to merely 3 old ages had caused impairment in the hapless quality of craft and low productiveness. This is because foreign labors that had 3 old ages experience may be replaced by those bashs have anterior building experience, therefore ensuing in low productiveness and hapless quality of work and clip devouring on learning the rawness labor. Some of them were non able to get by with new experience of working on large-scale undertakings. Abdul Rahim ( 2009 ) besides mentioned that the deficiency of quality foreign labor that have been hired is one of the chief jobs in building industry.

The companies that lose workers will necessitate to engage new 1s, who are likely to be unskilled and inexperient. That means the employers have to pass clip and resources to develop these new workers. As indicated in Master Builder ( Abdul Rahim, 2009 ) , upon beginning, the foreign labor would necessitate another 2. to 3 months to travel through an orientation or larning curve period before they become productive.

Furthermore, on-the-job preparation will take around seven to eight months so merely the foreign workers will get down to lend to company. To some extent, the preparation was hard, as most foreign labor were paid day-to-day rewards and were loath to undergo developing due to loss wage.

g ) Heavy Expenses in the Recruitment Process and Long Permit Processing Times

Malaysia introduced rough new in-migration Torahs, therefore the building industry is enduring from an acute deficit of foreign workers throughout the state. As a consequence, this has caused building industry activities to be delayed albeit contractors seeking to outdo of their enterprises to enroll new work force. The cardinal job now appears to be the long processing clip taken by the governments to allow the foreign work license ( Abdul Rahim, 2009 ) Contractors procuring new occupations have jobs mobilising new workers on clip, due to this long work license or enlisting procedure.

Based on Abdul Rahman, ( 2009 ) he besides mentioned that base on current experience, it takes about 2-3 months on a best instance scenario to travel through the full administrative procedure, get downing from obtaining a work license from the ministry of Home Affairs to the foreign workers deriving physical entry into Malaysia to work.

Therefore, it is non cost effectual to direct foreign workers home after the license period ( 3 old ages ) because of heavy disbursals in the enlisting procedure. Meanwhile, the procedure to convey in foreign workers is boring and clip consuming. Besides, a batch of cost is involved in medical scrutinies, transit and levies. Therefore, there is force per unit area in the system for employers to use illegal foreign labor and to dodge the levies and charges which are incurred on the employment of legal foreign labor.

2.5 Schemes to better the engagement of local labor in the building industry.

2.5.1 Cut Foreign Labour via Minimum Wage System

Recently, there was no national lower limit pay jurisprudence applicable to the Malaysia in building industry. Basic pay rates vary harmonizing to location and vay from company to company ( MIDA,2009 ) . The authorities should implement the minimal pay strategy in all occupation sectors to cut down the consumption foreign workers and so that it can pull local labor with the standard rewards.

The strategy has to be enforced as the increasing the figure of foreign workers in the state was merely profiting the employers and bureaus that brought the workers in. The employers who took the workers in. The employers who took the workers in were merely interested in inexpensive labor. This phenomenon was expected since the employers were more inclined to engage foreign workers who were prepared to accept low rewards. But with the implement of the minimal pay strategy, contractors might hold no pick but to use local labor. Besides, with the pay control system, the local labor will accpet the pay rate. Furthermore, the quality of work will better since local labour were largely graduate with at least diploma degree.

2.5.2 Industrialized Constructing Systems ( IBS )

The authorities encouragement to all employers to mechanize and travel into less labour intensive procedure has non achieved the coveted consequence. On the contrary, the demand for the foreign labor is increasing by the twenty-four hours. ( Rydgren, 2004 )

The bulk of foreign labour brought into the building industry were wet trade labor involved in concrete, brick, and wood plants. To cut down building industry dependance on such foreign labors, we must alter the manner we work by cut downing wet trade in the building procedure. This could be achieved through execution of the Industrialized Building Systems ( IBS ) Roadmap 2003-2010.

By uniting IBS with modern direction engineerings, the local skilled workers would make full the vacancies. They should accommodate high engineering to decrease the dependance on foreign work force. CIDB would give free preparation to locals so that they can replace the foreign work force and assist the building sector move towards utilizing new engineerings. The IBS Roadmap promises to cut down the figure of workers at building sites, use of stuff and wastage.

Conventional engineering that is being used needs a batch of work force, doing us to be dependent on foreign workers who are largely unskilled. As a consequence, non merely is the quality of craft being compromised but we besides lose out in footings of money fluxing out the state. With the IBS, wet trade workers can be reduced and building universe is now get downing to recognize the decreased and building plants focused on the usage of the mechanization and prefabrication.

Besides, the building universe is now get downing to recognize the advantages to be gained by incorporating fabricated steel and precast concrete with site dramatis personae concrete, much less labour is required on edifice sites. This consequence in the concealed cost of traveling labor around tall or big edifices being lower ( Peter, 2004 ) .

The Government even stopped offering inducements to labor-intensive houses, tuning its attending alternatively to developing of strategic high engineering industries ( Rajah, 2001 )
