The Visible Invisibles: Migrant Stories Told Through Their Own Voices

‘The Visible Invisibles’ is collection of stories told by low-wage migrant workers in Asia in their own voices. It explores several themes such as the power imbalance between employers and employees, love, death, religion, racism, friendship, and social liberties. The authors, Shivaji Das and Yolanda Yu, spoke to us about the stories and how the book might challenge existing perceptions about migrant workers.
