[WATCH] Labour pinch puts restaurant owners in limbo
THE fate of the food and beverage sector hangs in the balance, as industry players are unable to employ local workers or apply for foreign labourers for relief from the manpower shortage affecting the field, business owners said.
This, they said, meant they are suffering heavy losses due to their inability to meet demand.
Many have either slashed operating hours or shuttered because of the shortage, they said.
Ala Hussein Salih, owner of Sahara Tent, an Arabian restaurant in Ampang, said he has had to wear several hats to deal with the shortage of workers. – September 10, 2022.
