Description:

Labour advocacy groups are calling on the government to better protect the rights and welfare of migrant domestic workers in the light of Myanmar's rule barring its citizens from getting jobs in other countries as home workers. Poonsap Tulaphan, manager of Homenet Thailand, who advocates for home workers, said Myanmar in particular does not allow its people to be employed as home workers under the memorandum of understanding (MoU) system.
