The states with the third and fourth highest numbers of jobs lost were Johor (2,536 workers, 11.8%) and Penang (1,328 workers, 6.2%). M. Kulasegaran was quoted by the daily as saying,

“A significant number, 7,755 workers, who lost their jobs are those from the top three high paying jobs namely managers, professionals and technicians besides associate professionals that require diplomas and degrees for entry qualification. These three categories are limited and they also have to compete with fresh graduates.”

According to Free Malaysia Today, he added that there were many reasons for the retrenchments and that some were just due to work cycles.

In an effort to bring these retrenched workers back into the workforce, the minister added that the Social Security Organisation (Socso) has been handling this issue, adding,
