This is the first book to look at labor in Malaysian services, and also the first to use the labor market segmentation approach to study Malaysian labor. As in most other countries, the services sector has long accounted for more of the labor force than manufacturing in Malaysia. Studies of those working in services in developing countries have tended to focus on the public sector and, in recent decades, the informal sector. This study of workers in services also covers those in private enterprises, both modern (e.g. financial services) and traditional (e.g. transportation services). This study also looks more generallyat Malaysian labor market segmentation, especially at ethnicity and gender. Of particular importance are the impact of structural change in the economy and the interaction between these processes and the labor market on job and pay opportunities.
