Migrant workers in MCO: On daily wages, in a daily life-or-death battle


MIGRANT workers who earn daily wages, involved in woodwork, welding and other forms of menial labour, have been hit hard by the movement control order (MCO) put in place on March 18 to curb the Covid-19 outbreak.

Small businesses are closed and people are told to remain indoors. These foreign workers are now denied their daily wages and can barely feed their loved ones or themselves.
