The Human Resources Ministry has revealed that an estimated 15,346 Malaysians working in Singapore have been laid off as of yesterday (December 14th).
It’s understood that up until December 7th, a total of 802 of them have registered with the MYFutureJobs, with 195 of them having found new jobs.
But the Ministry, through the Social Security Organisation (Socso), has taken steps to resolve this matter as best it can, by organising the online 2020 Johor Penjana Kerjaya Carnival, specifically for Malaysians laid off in Singapore, which is on till tomorrow (December 16th).
The project, which was officially launched yesterday by Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Hasni Mohammad, features a total of 30 employers joined in the carnival offering more than 1,500 vacancies.
“I urge all Malaysians who have been laid off in Singapore to go to any Socso office to get help finding jobs through MYFutureJobs, which is a government employment portal, Minister Datuk Seri M. Saravanan told Bernama.
