Thailand: the plight of Burmese migrant workers

During May and June 2004, Amnesty International interviewed 115 Burmese nationals in seven locations in Thailand who were either working or looking for work.

They were employed mostly in the fishing, manufacturing, agricultural, construction, and domestic service industries.
