Deregulation hurts migrant women workers

 

There is endemic exploitation of low paid migrant women workers in some sectors of the economy.

Maria works in hospitality and is supposedly “paid the national minimum wage per hour”. In reality, she is paid according to the number of rooms she cleans. Reaching her target number of rooms per hour is virtually impossible for the average human being.

The result is that Maria gets paid well below the national minimum wage. Our experience at the Latin American Women’s Rights Service (LAWRS) tells us that many migrant women face a similar violation of their rights.
