    For more: Malaysia’s multi-billion dollar palm oil industry has long depended on low-paid foreign workers. Now, it’s suffering from an acute labor shortage after many of those workers left during the coronavirus pandemic and the government imposed a freeze on migrant workers entering the country. Businesses are now looking to locals, including prison parolees, to try to fill some of the shortfalls.
