Entwicklung, Arbeitsmarktsegregation und Klassenstruktur in Malaysia. Eine politische Ökonomie der Arbeitsmigration

Puder, Janina GND

Since the early 20th century, Malaysia has relied on the “import” of foreign labor, which led to the gradual institutionalization of a state regulated labor migration regime at the beginning of the 1970s. The article illustrates the historical emergence of the labor migration regime in the context of Malaysia’s capitalist development and growth dynamic. It is argued that the labor migration regime promoted the formation of a precarious, low-skilled class fraction of labor migrants, functioning as a reserve army for the Malaysian economy.
