Mandarin demand is discriminatory?

According to Najib, the private sector should stop the practice of making it compulsory for local graduates to be proficient in Mandarin.

The Deputy Prime Minister urged the private sector to be open in accepting and training local graduates without including certain requirements and looking at their background.

“I have checked some advertisements, where the criteria for potential employees includes being proficient in Mandarin”.

JUST WANNA REMIND NAJIB, OUR DPM, THAT MANDARINE IS A LANGUAGE SKILL, IF YOU HAVE THE SKILL, YOU HAVE THE ADVANTAGE, IT IS NOT DISCRIMINATE, IT IS THE MARKET DEMAND.

i think najib.. he is desperate... and dont know what the market need. if a company which deal with china's company definately need it employees to be proficient in mandarin... its a must and an advantage for the mandarin speaking canditates... or may be he think that the chinese will speak malay with them.. siao!! hey najib, its a problem from the dasar pendidikan implimented by mahatir la... if got problem, change the dasar... and don't say its a discrimation... coz its an advantage... and futhermore everyone also can learn mandarin in malaysia. its weather u willing to learn it or not...for the malaysia's chinese communiy we willing to sacrisfy our time to learn 3 language do we feel learing malay its a descrimation... NO! coz learning malay its an advantage too, if the market needed us to learn tamil, i think we will learn it too... think about that... dont cakap siok siok sahaje...coz it will cause un-easy among the chinese speaking community.

Being hardcore egoistic Malay, they feel threatened by the added advantage of Chinese in the job market. They KNOW China is the emerging giant and sooner or later, Malaysia will have to be involved with them, which means learning the language too. But NOOOO, kita bangsa melayu, Bahasa Melayu adalah bahasa kebangsaan and keBANGGAan kita. I just hate their mentality, so tight-minded and damn ego. Give them time, they need LOTs of it, to slowly accept that they must change.
