The Joseph Rowntree foundation (JRF) will be launching in Manchester research which is to look at how the Chinese migrant workers in the UK have experiences of exploitation and forced labour.
The research has been conducted by Manchester Metropolitan University in partnership with the Wai Yin Chinese Women Society, Manchester, and in collaboration with the Chinese Welfare Association in Belfast and the Chinese Migrant Network in London.
This research drew on the experiences of 32 migrant Chinese workers, mostly in the Chinese catering and hospitality business and it explores the experiences of exploitation among low-skilled Chinese migrant workers in the UK.
It highlights the extent of exploitation at work, examines what makes workers vulnerable to forced labour, and considers the complex relationships between migration, work and family.
This free event will take place on the 1st November.
