Umno Youth slams Fong over neglect of Bumi grads
01 Mar 2007
SHAH ALAM: Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri Dr Fong Chan Onn was lambasted yesterday for neglecting unemployed Bumiputera graduates.
and it goes further on to their targeting one company
...he [Umno Youth Public Complaints Bureau chairman Datuk Subahan Kamal] told reporters after highlighting allegations of discrimination against Bumiputera employees by Giant Hypermarket in Shah Alam.
He said the ministry should enforce a 30 per cent quota for Bumiputeras at all levels in the private sector and ensure that locals were given preference over foreigners.
They had also claimed that there were few opportunities for career advancement in the company. The letter, sent to the Prime Minister’s Department, also alleged there were no Bumiputeras in top management positions in the company. Giant Retail (M) Sdn Bhd chief operating officer Datuk John Coyle, who had earlier met Subahan over the matter, told reporters that 80 per cent of staff in the company were Bumiputeras. He said there were 123 Bumiputeras in lower and middle management with three in top management positions.
To Lulu's recollection, this is the first time they are actually targetting a company. Usually, these are general statements. It disturbs Lulu. Today they're visiting Giant, tomorrow it could be your company...
Rationally thinking, if you were a good employee, there is no reason why your boss would not want to promote you. And don't think that the Chinese only hire Chinese, or that the Chinese only promote their own kind. [this is a very big generalisation but..] what doe$ the Chine$e care about? What are the Chine$e known for? If you can do your work well, if you can bring in the re$ult$, then you will be rewarded well. Don't get hoods over to see your CEO and fight your selfish hidden agenda for you.
