Thailand's Hidden Workforce: Burmese Migrant Women Factory Workers

Thailand's Hidden Workforce: Burmese Migrant Women Factory Workers (Paperback)

£19.99
Usually despatched in 10+ days.

Synopsis

Millions of Burmese women migrate into Thailand each year to form the basis of the Thai agricultural and manufacturing workforce.



Un-documented and unregulated, this army of migrant workers constitutes the ultimate 'disposable' labour force, enduring gruelling working conditions and much aggression from the Thai police and immigration authorities. This insightful book ventures into a part of the global economy rarely witnessed by Western observers.



Based on unique empirical research, it provides the reader with a gendered account of the role of women migrant workers in Thailand's factories and interrogates the ways in which they manage their families and their futures.

Ruth Pearson is Professor of International Development at the University of Leeds, UK. Kyoko Kusakabe is Associate Professor of Gender and Development Studies in the School of Environment, Resources and Development at the Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand.
