Clothing exporters turn down new orders
Jan '10
Clothing exporting companies are unable to take new orders, despite the resurgence in order position in the last few weeks as most of these companies are unable to find and attract domestic workers to their units.

The biggest challenge these units face is retaining the workforce who demand a five-day working week or report irregularly for work or in most cases work for just 2-3 months and leave their jobs after receiving training.

Due to these problems, apparel manufacturers are bringing in workers from other Asian countries like Nepal and Bangladesh though it costs them more as they have to pay their air-fares and visa costs.

But these costs do not deter these units as these foreign workers are willing to work for seven days in a week, work overtime and do not take leave on public holidays which ensures that overseas orders are delivered on time.

But these clothing units are deterred by the two-year work permit given to these workers as well as the ever-changing worker immigration laws, which does not permit them to employ the foreign workers for longer periods of time.
