Human Trade is a film by independent filmmakers,  Lynn Lee and James Leong. It exposes the widespread scams in Singapore and Malaysia by agents and employers in the trading of foreign workers. Millions of dollars change hands between agents and employers – while those who pay them for jobs, mostly Bangladeshi workers, end up destitute and broken.

This film was featured on Al Jazeera’s People And Power Programme on 18 August. We highly recommend that you watch the programme to know the scale and nature of the scams, the workers who’re being exploited and what, in Singapore, the Ministry of Manpower is doing about it – or not.
