Hotels in the country are dying 😭 1 by 1 with no financial stimulus package or plan for them to survive! All the fast closing down are contributing unemployment figures to the poor statistics! Instead of saving the hoteliers industry & jobs which unfortunately, had never been the main focus point here (look at Thailand!), just as an example, the gomen talks about opening barber cutting hairs & politics plus, interstate travel restrictions every now & then especially & still about couple! Come on...

How lah, not surprising of not closing down!!

it is a shit time to be in hotel-tourism-leisure-hospitality sectors.
our gomen has never been big in this sector, unlike thailand or singapore.
somemore wanna ban this, ban that; this cannot, that cannot.
and no plan how to reduce foreign workers.
locals young and old are going to find employment a nightmare for some time.
just think about fresh graduates, fresh school leavers...

30,000 in hotel industry have lost jobs, says MTUC
FMT Reporters -May 31, 2020 10:28 AM

The tourist belt in Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, is one of the areas badly hit by travel restrictions due to Covid-19.
PETALING JAYA: More than 30,000 employees in the country’s hotel sector have lost their jobs in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) said.

In addition, more than 10,000 have been told to take unpaid leave, and more than 6,000 have had their pay cut, MTUC president Abdul Halim Mansor said.

He told Bernama that from March 18 to May 27, MTUC had, through its Covid-19 helpdesk, received 383 complaints regarding pay reduction, 186 complaints of dismissal, 37 cases of forced leave and 54 unpaid leave, and 17 cases in connection with the enforcement of the movement control order.

To ensure the survival of the former hotel employees, Halim said, the government must end the country’s dependence on foreign workers and give priority to Malaysians to fill job vacancies.

Putrajaya masking reality of growing unemployment, says MTUC

In normal times Bukit Bintang would be filling up with Arab and ME tourists from next week. No way at the moment as these countries are all not in control of the epidemic at all
