Migrant workers in Thailand’s seafood industry organize to improve conditions

Thailand's seafood industry has come under fire after several reports have surfaced alleging the forced detention and extortion of workers, along with the use of child labor. The Thai government has failed to stop and prevent these abuses. Many who make up the workforce in the canning plants and seafood factories are migrants from Myanmar, the nearby country also known as Burma and, as FSRN’s Simba Russeau reports, they’re fighting to improve labor conditions.
