Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
Overworked and undervalued, women migrant workers in the Thai construction and domestic work sectors are regularly discriminated against and often lack labour protection. Women currently make up approximately half of all documented migrant workers in ASEAN, but their experiences are often shaped by their gender and are markedly different to the experiences of men.
The International Labour Organization (ILO) recently conducted two innovative studies. The first, High rise, low pay: Experiences of migrant women in the Thai construction sector, looks at gender-specific challenges faced by women construction workers. The second, Worker, helper, auntie, maid? Working conditions and attitudes experiences by women migrant workers in Thailand and Malaysia, links public attitudes, as expressed in the media and by employers, to working conditions experienced by migrant domestic workers.
