A number of policies to hold laborers

Before, lacking laborers after Tet holiday troubles enterprises as it hinders fulfillment of the orders which badly affects the prestige and profits of the companies. Fortunately, in recent years, this issue has been improved. Particularly, the rate of laborers returning to work on the first day after the Tet holiday reaches 95 percent or more.

Besides, they organized a year-end party, a party after Tet and used some 100 million VND (some 4,309 USD) to held a Lucky draw program for workers.

The useful gifts such as motorcycles, televisions, fridges or washing machines helped many workers improve their living in the new year. “It’s not easy to find a stable job at the average income of 8 million VND (344 USD) per month.
