Migrant workers have always been an important part of our communities and our economy. Last week a report was released with the shocking statistics that roughly half of migrant workers are receiving $15/hr or less. More startling is the fact that over 90% of these workers are not making any attempts to recover these unpaid wages. We speak with Laurie Berg, one of the authors of the report. We also speak with the NUW's George Robertson about what that union has uncovered in its work with the largely migrant workforce on Australia's farms.
