Economy, tax incentives & labor conditions
A blue-collar worker earns on average a wage of 368 euros gross per month in this country in 2008.
There are approximately 2.5 to 3 million migrant workers in Malaysia, 1.8 million of whom are documented. Migrant workers are not allowed to join associations. Migrant workers work long hours, for very low pay, if any, and are often subject to verbal and physical abuse. Employers can terminate migrant workers contracts for virtually any reason.
Employers consistently refused to recognise trade unions, exploiting a requirement in the labour law. The ban on the formation of industrial unions in the ?pioneer? electronics sector, and other extensive restrictions on union rights remained unchanged. Protests by migrant workers were attacked.
