Labour Party Policy Council Member Priyanca Radhakrishnan has a point.
An increasing number of migrant workers subsist under despicable working and living conditions, which is no less or more than slavery.
Short of being physically beaten, their life, if reports are to be believed, is on the brink of collapse, belying the fairness for which New Zealand is renowned the world over.
Priyanca’s article, ‘Exploitation of migrant workers tantamount to slavery’ under Businesslink is a must read.
Exploitation of migrant workers and international students is nothing new in countries, which depend on migration for its economic progress. Britain, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand have laws that prescribe minimum wages, working and living conditions and rights of migrants on work permits.
