Young Workers: Why is migration an issue for you?

21 February, 2013
Migration is an issue that affects us all. It cuts across many realities either at work or in the community. PSI works with trade unions worldwide to protect migrant workers. PSI also works to improve wages and working conditions – to reduce the economic pressure to migrate and to improve the quality of health and social services.

Trade unions protect migrant workers’ rights and promote international solidarity among workers worldwide. Trade unions are also concerned about social justice and the impact of migration on brain drain in developing countries. The quality of public services in developing countries suffers because developed countries are not investing in training and retention of their own nationals, particularly in the health and education services.

These issues particularly affect young workers and women, both as workers and as users of health services.
