Exploited and illegal: Unlawful migrant workers in Australia
reportposted on 03.10.2018 by Marie Segrave
A formal account of an observation, investigation, finding, activity or any other type of information.
This interim report seeks to draw attention primarily to the issue of unlawful migrant work in Australia; to debunk some key myths around this population; and to raise a challenge to policy makers and legislators to look towards a future that will enable impact labour reform to be achieved – reform that will reduce the levels of exploitation and modern slavery occurring within Australia. The report also raises the question: can Australia commit to countering modern slavery and migrant labour exploitation if it continues to sideline unlawful migrant labour experiences based on workers’ migration status?
