Many have lost their jobs during the Movement Control Order (MCO) as a result from the Covid-19 nightmare.

To help locals who have become jobless, the government has launched the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) National Economic Recovery Plan (PENJANA). This will make way for 40,000 jobs for Malaysians.

Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M. Saravanan spoke to Bernama about the aforementioned initiative. “The job opportunities will be opened up in stages within six months from now,” he told the publication. The move will not only help jobless Malaysians learn a new skill but also earn some income again.
