TWC2 is an organisation which helps migrant/transient to find jobs and to get their lifestyle stable and on track. they help 70% of workers. 20-30% of workers need help with salary issues and many others struggle with their employer and their agreements. TWC2 helps these workers in the process by telling them their rights and ways to find a better situation for them.
most of these workers receive $1.70 an hour and $12 a day. To earn more and argue with their employer they have to get a lawyer, which requires money and resources. The employers and legal firms are normally not happy with this organisation because it goes against their ways and helps the employees.
What I learnt…
That transient workers are in need of the society’s help and that we as a society and a community also have a right to their lives and their wellbeings. Singapore needs these workers to build the community and area we live in. Their problems are deeper than just donations. The workers need these jobs for their family, to pay for children’s education and food and housing. This is why we need to help these workers not only for their benefit but also for our community.
