Description

On Thursday at 12pm EDT VICE News’ Senior Producer Andrew Glazer (https://twitter.com/andrewglazer) will join On The Line to discuss exploitative labor practices in Japan and Cambodia.

For workers at the lowest rungs on the economic ladder, things aren’t always as they seem. Although it was designed to rescue and rehabilitate sex workers, many Cambodian women say the country’s anti­-trafficking campaign is forcing them into a trade where conditions and pay are even worse: making clothing for Western brands.

The Japanese government offers an internship program that attracts foreign workers. Advertised as providing laborers with transferrable new skills for when they return home, many interns are underpaid, saddled with insurmountable debt, and forced into a form of indentured servitude.
