ILO launches campaign to remedy Foreign Temporary Worker conditions.

from CNN UK

ILO Director-General Guy Ryder, tells CNN that billions of US dollars are withheld from workers worldwide- money that should be invested into lifting people out of poverty and out of entrapment. Migrant workers who use unscrupulous agencies to find work in other countries sometimes end up in "straight-forward modern-day slavery". The ILO and the UK government have launched the "Work in Freedom" project to help women in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal get training and know their rights to avoid falling into forced labour.

Migrant workers can become forced labourers.

About International Labour Organization

The ILO is the international organization responsible for drawing up and overseeing international labour standards. It is the only 'tripartite' United Nations agency that brings together representatives of governments, employers and workers to jointly shape policies and programmes promoting Decent Work for all. This unique arrangement gives the ILO an edge in incorporating 'real world' knowledge about employment and work.
