The number of imported laborers of China's Macao Special Administrative Region reached 73,460 at the end of May, accounting for nearly 25 percent of the region's total labor force, according to official statistics issued Wednesday.

The figures from the Labor Affair Bureau showed that Macao with a population of 520,000 has a total labor force of 301,000.

Laborers from the Chinese mainland accounted for 55.5 percent of the total imported labor force, the figures showed.

Locals have long been urging the government to protect the interests of the local work force by ensuring them of employment priority.
