Labor of Loss is a podcast by Winrock International, supported by US Aid. It covers labour issues in Asia, taking a peak behind the curtain at whether change is possible, and what it looks like.
The latest episode is about oil palm plantations in Malaysia. It explores the colonial history behind migrant labour in Malaysia, as well as two approaches to dealing with issues – the proverbial carrot and stick.
Among other speakers, listen in on Earthworm's Natasha Mahendran talk about our work returning passports to migrant workers in the palm oil industry.
