No To Slavery
- Monday 1 January 2018
The removal of the basic rights of migrant domestic workers by the coalition government and the introduction of a visa ‘ties’ them to their employer. This change has enslaved migrant domestic workers. If they flee abuse and exploitation, their tied status means they have no redress.
We do not need to live again the horrifying abuse of the past. From 1980-1997 because of inhuman treatment, over 4,000 migrant domestic workers escaped their abusive employers. Many suffered from physical and sexual abuse, non-payment or underpayment of wages, long hours of work and sleep deprivation.
Sign the petition below to tell the prime minister that we do not need to live again the horrifying abuse of the past.
