Export orders pick up, companies run short of workers
Jun '09
A quaint paradox has developed in the Vietnamese textile and garment industry which has put the garment companies in a distressing position. A increase in pace of export orders has been noticed in the last few weeks, but unfortunately these companies have run short of workers to man their machines.

Companies have orders in hand which can enable them to run their companies thorough the third quarter of the year, but no workers, due to which they are forced to sub-contract the manufacturing activities to other manufacturers in order to ensure that the orders are processed in time.

Most of the workers who went back home during the Tet festival in January have not returned back, while others have opted to shift to other sectors which provide better salaries. The garment sector has developed a reputation for paying lower salaries than those paid by other industries, which has brought about this piquant situation.

There are some companies who are desperate enough to pay higher than average salaries and there are some who are willing to train workers by paying them during the training period, but still workers are not turning up, leading to a very difficult position and this too at a time when there is a revival of orders.
