Migration in a Digital Age

17.03.2011: Migrant workers in the Malaysian electronics industry: case studies on Jabil Circuit and Flextronics.

  

Malaysia is one of the ten largest exporters of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) products in the world. The industry is fuelled by low wages, overtime work, and the rejection of trade union rights. Since industry players face difficulties hiring Malaysian workers under these conditions, they are increasingly relying on migrant workers. Today, Malaysia is the main destination for migrant workers in Southeast Asia.

The following case studies illustrate the working and living conditions of these migrant employees. The studies reveal systematic violations of national and international laws, including the freedom of association for employees, one of the International Labour Organisation(ILO) core labour standards.
