Construction industry is a labor-intensive industry. To keep in track with the fast-paced development, our country chose to depend on the foreign workers because they are cheaper and easier to get. Further more, these foreign workers are able to work long hours and very determined to work compared to local workers. Nevertheless, employment of these workers resulted increasing problems effecting the construction sector and country. These problems include crime cases, health, socio-culture, communications and expertise exported to other countries and as well as the monetary out flow. Amongst these problems, the money out flow is the one that is significant and should be prevented since it will cause an economic impact on the country. Therefore, this research was conducted in order to figure out how much money each foreign worker sent back each month. 50 respondents were identified and surveyed in order to get the estimated amount of how much money they sent back. From the study, the amount sent ranged from RM 401 to RM 500 every month to their country which is Indonesia. This amount affects the country’s balance of account if the numbers of the employment of these foreign workers are taken into consideration. Therefore, the government should take a preventive action in orfer to control the monetary out flow caused by these foreign labors by enforcing the employment of local workers in the industry. Besides, this problem can be addressed by restricting the amount of money transferred by the foreign workers to their hometown since most of the respondents sending back part of their salary by bank.
