About This Book

This book attempts to evaluate Singapore's approach to and treatment of low-paid temporary migrant workers from a justice-oriented framework. This framework is congruent with a Christian perspective that prioritises social justice. Justice features prominently in the Bible, and Christian social teachings on justice, poverty and oppression illuminate the moral dimension of human rights and international labour standards and reveal the truth a faith that is alive to the suffering and hardships of others. These teachings contribute to an ethical framework convergent with fundamental values enshrined in core labour standards and rights. They also cohere with other major spiritual and religious traditions, thus demonstrating a viable path for solidarity and cooperation between and among not just diverse faith-based communities but equally with secular groups in pluralistic societies.
