Human Resources Minister, Datuk Seri M. Saravanan said about 72,000 Malaysians were retrenched since the government imposed the movement control order (MCO) from March. Citing the latest figures from the Social Security Organisation (SOCSO), he said the figure excludes those who work in informal businesses since they are not registered with it. “At the moment those who have registered with SOCSO are among those who have been let go and searching for jobs is about 72,000 people. This is the figure as of early September, taken from early March 2020.
