Fast food restaurants will no longer be able to hire foreign workers after a ‘locals first’ decision was made in Parliament this week.

The decision was made by the Special Cabinet Committee on Foreign Workers and Illegal Immigrants (JKAA-PATI) on Tuesday, in a meeting chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

“The government views the matter seriously and fast-food concept restaurant operators have been urged to employ locals who are still interested in working at such places,” the JKAA-PATI secretariat said in statement, Bernama reported.

“Fast food restaurants are still popular as a source of employment among young people such as school-leavers and university students to obtain exposure and income, even as part-timers in the food industry.”

The first Managing Mental Health & Wellbeing in the Workplace online course will be launched in December.
