No one should work this way: Ending the abuse of Asian domestic workers (ILO)

 

This video is part of an advocacy project to expose some of the abuses and poor conditions that a significant number of domestic workers experience, and call for governments to ratify international convention (ILO Convention 189) that would protect them .There are more than 52 million domestic workers worldwide but the vast majority are unprotected by labour laws. This leaves them open to – sometimes terrible – abuse and exploitation. The journalist Karen Emmons worked with the photographer Steve McCurry on this documentary project.

The UAE government, about to take up an influential new role in the International Labour Organization (ILO), has failed to adequately protect female domestic workers – many of them from the Philippines – from abuse by employers and recruiters.
