The growth of the international education market has generated a new workforce that works part-time while studying in a host country. These workers are highly vulnerable, growing in number and are very much under-researched. Drawing on interviews with 200 international students studying in Australia we argue international student workers are in many cases compelled to accept forms of work and levels of payment that are unacceptable to domestic students.
