Forced labour is a massive problem in Malaysia.
We’re talking about horrible wages, deplorable working and living conditions – in essence, modern-day slavery.
But what can we do about it? Recently, Lee Hwok-Aun of Iseas and Adrian Pereira of the North-South Initiative, wrote a paper for Iseas-Yusof Ishak Institute titled “Can Malaysia Eliminate Forced Labour By 2030″?
BFM discusses the paper with the authors.
