everything about the impact of covid-19 on migrant workers is heartbreaking. what's even more heartbreaking is that it took a pandemic for so many of us to feel heartbroken about the invisibility of migrant workers in Singapore. (a thread) #circuitbreakersg#migrantworkers
it's a national failure - and by that, im referring not just to the government, but the role that all of us have played in the dehumanisation and exploitation of migrant workers over the years.
sure, some of us might insist that we may not have knowingly done anything wrong. why should we feel guilty for being ignorant?
