Hold Employers Responsible For Stranded Migrant Workers

The issue of stranded migrant workers without jobs (despite them being brought in through legal channels) has been reported widely. Recently, Human Resource Minister Steven Sim expressed his disapproval towards employers who refused to pay migrant workers, and said that moving forward, the HR's ministry's policy would be that any worker brought in would be paid whether or not their work had started. We talk about the need for better accountability from employers who bring in migrant workers.
