Current number of laborers jumping from a company to others has been being larger than the number in early months of the year, reported the city Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs yesterday.
Many fields have been strongly influenced. Laborers have moved to look for new job with high income. For instance, construction field has been under strong impact of laboring transferring and it has to cut down on labor, salary and bonuses.
The Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs in Ho Chi Minh City said that the field had seen the decrease in recruitment demand by 50 percent compared to the same period last year. Moreover, the unemployment rate of architects and construction engineers is quite high. Just a few people can satisfy professional requirements for architects.
Furthermore, the construction filed has seen more and more seasonal workers with the proportion of more than 80. Seasonal workers are those who don’t have stable jobs and they have to move to new places; accordingly they must live in dilapidated huts at the construction sites.
Ms. Pham Thi Bao Ha from the Institute of Labor Science and Social Affairs said that in the next time, construction laborers will have to seek for new jobs with low income and continue to move to distant regions. Worse, they must seek more jobs to support living condition or receive families’ assistance.
The recruitment demand in finance-banking field will decrease by 20 percent and fewer companies need skilled laborers. They are believed to receive more freelancers than official employees. It is expected that new jobs for trainee and freelance position will make up 60 percent of staff and only official employees make up only 40 percent.
According to Ms. Bao Ha, laborers in the agriculture sector face more problems. Young people are not interested in working in farms or they just consider this is a temporary job while seeking others. Most of farmers now are at the age of over 45.
In Ho Chi Minh City, only immigrant low-skilled laborers have transferred from companies to companies, said Hoang Van Khai from the Politics Institutes. Such unskilled laborers must accept unstable, low income and seasonal jobs.
Le Thi Ngoc Dung from the Ho Chi Minh Institute for Development Studies said that it needed to have a measure to raise laborers’ position in informal sectors. In addition, policy makers should consider laborers in informal sectors as a part of the country’s national economy. Employment program should go along with training courses in order to professionalize labor forces
Related agencies should provide employment information of informal and general labor markets to job-seekers as well as adopt policies such as unemployment support and education for their children, aiming take care of laborers in informal sectors in a bid to offer fairness among laborers.
