Rights Awareness Among Foreign Workers

A Malaysiakini article reports that foreign workers are often not aware of their rights, and this situation opens them up to exploitation by employers. We speak with researcher Aslam Abd Jalil about what can be done to empower foreign workers so that they are able to seek help when their rights are violated.
