Women Speak Up: Women migrant agricultural workers share their experiences and strategies for exercising their rights
Migrants make up the majority of the labor force in numerous sectors of both the regional economy as well as the national economies of industrialized countries. Agriculture and food production employ a third of the world's working people - more than any other industry - and women migrants make up an increasingly large proportion of agricultural laborers. Grassroots worker collectives and civil society organizations have been demanding respect for these women's rights, and a key component of this advocacy work is exchanging best practices and sharing them with hiring companies and government authorities.
An alliance is formed to strengthen the labor rights of migrant workers in the agricultural industry.
Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021. Periplo works in three ways: to strengthen migrant agricultural workers’ knowledge of labor human rights and how to exercise them; to increase the implementation of private sector good practices in recruitment processes and labor standards; and to promote cross-sector and multi-stakeholder dialogue, exchange, and collaboration.
