Caring For The Migrant Workers in Maldives

Amira at Mindblur comments:

The population of the Maldives is a little over 300,000 people and we employee over 100,000 expatriate workers mainly in menial jobs in the construction industry, as housemaids, cleaners, helpers in various places, etc. This high proportion of the population would mean the Government should put a lot more importance on regulating the workforce and their welfare.
