Author: Dan Rivers, CNN, Published on: 2 October 2011
In rural Cambodia, CNN’s Dan Rivers meets women who say they were taken to Malaysia with promises of well-paying jobs only to find they would have to pay deductions they could barely afford and have their passports confiscated. He also visits the employment agent behind the jobs, who was not happy to see him and did not want CNN shining a light on her business. For a time the crew was locked inside the agency compound as tension grew. In Malaysia there are more women who can’t get home.
