The attitudes of employers who tend to hire foreign workers cause debate among the public. Some claim that employers should not hire foreign workers because the jobs offered can be done by locals. On the other hand, some claim that employers need to hire foreign workers because of the reluctance of local people to engage in the 3D sector (Dirty, Dangerous, Difficult). Therefore, this article is intended to explore the issues that arise among employers regarding the issue of hiring. In addition, the study also examined the factors of the tendency to employ foreign workers compared to local workers among employers. To achieve the objective of this study, indepth qualitative interviewing method was used involving 10 officers involved in managing the employment of foreign workers. The results of the interviews showed that high commitment, reasonable wage rates, not choosing a job, and low educational attainment among foreign workers were a major factor for employers favoring foreign workers compared to local workers. In conclusion, foreign workers are needed to help boost the country's economy, but the employment of uncontrolled foreign workers can negatively impact not only on society but also on national security.
