Answering the questions of the journalists in the program, HR director Lee and Manpower CEO Shrestha requested the relevant organizations to monitor and provide necessary support as their campaign is free foreign employment. Manpower, which has been sending workers for foreign employment for years, has been sending workers at zero cost since 2020.
Journalists present at the program expressed their happiness that some of the manpower started because the desire of all workers and manpower is to go to foreign employment with zero hardship. They said – ‘Well, it is not only Manpower, but Nepali workers from all Manpower should go without suffering.’ Although the government has maintained free visa and ticket rules, it has become very easy for workers going for foreign employment when some manpower have implemented zero hassle. If all the manpower of Nepal implements zero hardship, the day will surely come when foreign employers will also be forced to choose Nepalese.
