SINGAPORE – Some poultry importers here have resorted to cutting staff pay and giving them unpaid leave amid uncertainty over the lifting of Malaysia’s export ban on live broiler chickens.

In addition to importing chickens, these companies also own chicken farms in Malaysia and slaughterhouses here, forcing them to reduce the salaries or working hours of senior and other processing staff after they had already cut the working hours of their slaughterhouse workers earlier.
