Plights of migrant Bangladeshis

Al Jazeera's reporter Tony Birtley exposes that Bangladeshi migrant workers are subject to some highly organized scams throughout Asia. Watch the video (via Singabloodypore) where some of them are shown kept in cages in Singapore:

I was appalled to see how the owners behaved with Tony Birtly when he asked whether they had legal papers.

Meanwhile Shafiur reports that instead of looking at the miseries of the migrant workers the Bangladeshi Government is thinking of inflicting a bond of “Tk. 1 million and fixed deposit receipt of Tk. 100,000" upon the migrant workers so that they do not abscond from the employer. Whose side are they on?
