Zembla: Down the drain

Zembla: Down the drain

An investigative documentary about the international trade of cheap labor. Since 2000 (the opening of the European borders) numerous temporary job agencies have thrived. Workers from countries like Poland and Portugal are employed in richer EU states and forced to accept low wages with poor terms of employment. For example, Irish recruitment company Atlanco Rimec is one of the biggest suppliers of cheap workers on the European Market, making huge profits by exploiting its employees. Workers are not comfortable to speak out because they are afraid to lose their jobs.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,
