We can never win our battle against Covid-19 without flattening the curve of infections among migrant workers. We will need them during this pandemic and even after that as we need to rebuild our economy that has been severely affected. We will need them until the time when the local workforce can completely substitute them. This is the time when the government needs to be resolute. Act 446 must be strictly enforced and if there are any genuine cases of employers who really cannot afford it, the government should use any appropriate funds from Budget 2021. We have to resolve this issue once and for all and there cannot be any second chance because the rakyat does not want any more new waves of Covid-19. We need the concerted efforts of the government, employers, workers, and of course the entire rakyat. With our unity, let us win the war against Covid-19!
