Migrant Worker Wage Theft
Thousands of migrant workers whose labour made the World Cup possible still have not been able to recover the wages they are owed. They are not the exception. In every country, migrant workers routinely face wage theft because of their unique vulnerability as migrants. Though every jurisdiction has judicial and/or administrative mechanisms to address wage claims, employers in every country can be confident that very few unpaid migrant workers will ever use those mechanisms to recover their wages. This is because the system is stacked against them at every stage in the wage claim process.
