Preface Introduction Chapter 1 - Migration in Context Chapter 2 - Migrant Labour Chapter 3 - Impacts Chapter 4 - Government Responses and Responsibilities Conclusion Notes Index

The author argues that even governments, keen to protect big business, are complicit in this exploitation; their 'law and order' approach on immigration being part of this complicity.
