Trafficking of domestic workers: slavery behind closed doors!
Domestic workers, held like slaves, is an issue in all countries of the world - also in Austria.
What is the situation in Austria?
✗ Austria also has domestic workers working under conditions similar to slavery. They are paid far below the minimum wage - despite the strict legal regulations.
✗ In many countries women and girls are treated worse than men and boys. Particularly in poorer countries, girls often do not have any opportunities to go to school.
✗ Many women therefore hope to find a good job abroad. They want to feed their family.
✗ They often cannot legally enter the desired country. They have no residence papers or work permits.
✗ They therefore work illegally, often under very difficult conditions.
