Migrants work in poor conditions in Thailand
Published on 24 Jun 2013 : British human rights activist Andy Hall has worked to help improve conditions for migrant workers in Thailand for years.
Now, he is being sued for 10 million dollars by a fruit processing company in the outskirts of capital Bangkok, after he contributed to an NGO report accusing the company of several rights violations including using child labour.
Hall says that migrants work for below the legal minimum wage, their passports get confiscated and there are reports of forced overtime work. There is a lot of evidence displaying that Thailand has a big problem when it comes to the treatment of migrant workers. Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from Bangkok.
