Migrant Series #Ep7 - Domestic Workers: Commodities or Human Beings?

Migrant Series #Ep7 - Domestic Workers: Commodities  or Human Beings?

Over the next few weeks of this special series on migrant labour, we will be exploring the topic from the perspective of policy and economics; taking you through the forgotten history of a landmark court case, and delving into the specific challenges faced by domestic workers. This week we take a look at recruitment fees and ask, just how much does a domestic worker make? We ask whether the labour supply system encourages us to see domestic workers as commodities, and speak to two young girls who came to Malaysia in search of employment opportunities, only to find themselves abused.
