Raw deal for migrant workers

The Department of Foreign Employment and the Nepali Embassy...managed to secure nearly Rs9 million for about 34 migrants workers...

Many... had taken substantial loans to make the move to Qatar happen... Yet, three years on... continued to suffer a hard life in Nepal... burdened by the loans they had to take in order find work...

it indeed great news that the migrant workers yet to receive payment from Mercury MENA are finally getting paid. However, for the poor migrant worker, this will always be a case of too little too late... the exploitation begins much before the worker flies to Qatar.
