Matter of civilization

KWESTIE VAN BESCHAVING – kwestia społecznej odpowiedzialności – O chestiune de civilizaţie

In the Netherlands it is the temporary work agency who can fire you at any moment, but also your landlord.  FNV has uncountable of examples of abuse and can only conclude that migrant workers are a business model before they even carry out their first hour of work. Masses of migrant workers are housed in overcrowded, bad housing units and barracks. They can only hope for honest work and a better future.


Together we can improve the living and working environment for migrant workers. That is a matter of civilization. Do you have suggestions, tips or do you have photos that we can use? Get in touch here.
