According to the division of Labor - Employment under the department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, 9,000 local businesses in 33 industrial zones and clusters said they needed a huge number of unskilled workers.

Around 170 businesses seek skilled and unskilled workers at Long An Employment Service Center per month. In November alone, about 1,400 local labors were recruited although very few people attended local job transaction session on November 15. 

“Local businesses have seemed not to attract employees because of the low salaries and satisfied policies. Moreover, laborers in Can Duoc, Can Giuoc and Duc Hoa districts were looking for jobs in HCMC and Binh Duong province", said Director of the provincial Employment Service Center.

In order to solve this problem, functional agencies and businesses should have long-term solutions to attract local employees.

The provincial Employment Service Center has monthly absorbed businesses with the recruitment demand of skilled and unskilled laborers in the sectors of garment-textile, leather-shoes, mechanical engineering, industrial electricity…

Up to November in 2017, 5,370 employees looked for jobs via the center. Besides, the Labor, Invalid and Social Affairs sector helped solve jobs for 30,071 laborers, accounting for 100.24 percent of its yearly plan; cut unemployment rate in the province of 3.5 percent./.
