According to the recently released findings of a global survey of working conditions in 139 countries (2014), Malaysia is ranked as one of the worst 24 countries in the world for workers

Bad news for salary earners in Malaysia: you’re currently working in one of the world’s 24 worst countries for workers, according to a new survey report, where despite the existence of “legislation that may spell out certain rights, workers effectively have no access to these rights and are therefore exposed to autocratic regimes and unfair labour practices.”

What do you think about this result?

Dear Ms Ngan

What do you think about this result?
Obnoxious..!!

“legislation that may spell out certain rights, workers effectively have no access to these rights and are therefore exposed to autocratic regimes and unfair labour practices.”

1/ "No access"
Absolutely inaccurate
Some workers are not aware of the rights and venues for redress.
Ignorance of Labor Laws is no excuse given the level of education is Msia is quite high.
The whole "redress" system is proper and is in place..!!

2/ "autocratic regimes"
There is no such regimes in private sector. It is workers attitude that is the main problem as in all countries. Personally, i believe, gender based inequalities existed more prominently in Vietnam too.

3/ "unfair labour practices"
It happens in every developing country. At least in Msia, we do not have sweat shops?? Or even forced child labour.

U beg to defer..??
Pls come to Msia to verify..!!

Wow, you said like I'm the one who was accused of your country or something. That was the result of an international survey and I just want to know whether you see your country is in that bad working environment or not. If you don't, lucky for you. I have no reason to offend anybody or any countries. Take it easy, ok?

Well, I am responding to your above statement which is put in a Legal Forum (Largest in Msia)..

I just want to know whether you see your country is in that bad working environment or not
Any particular reason why you wanted to know?
Have answered your concerns.
The manpower you supplied overseas is under foreign employment contract and under the purview of Msian Immigration Dept, therefore No Issues. 

If you don't, lucky for you
"Lucky for me"
You meant to indicate the rest of the wage earners in Msia are then "suffering"?
