Indonesian Migrants in Johor: An Itinerant Labour Force
The links between Indonesia and Johor, Malaysia, across the narrow straits have been strong for centuries. 1 Many Johoreans trace their origins to various islands in the Indonesian archipelago. In recent years the presence of large numbers of Indonesian migrant workers in Malaysia has become the focus of media and political debate; it is seen not only as undermining working conditions but as aggravating fragile ethnic relations within Malaysia. The aim of this article is to examine the presence and employment of Indonesians in the southern area of Johor, 2 and the responses of government and the public to this phenomenon.
