Just Work? offers a vast range of original, grass-roots perspectives on global migrant labour organising in the twenty-first century. From diverse worker’s organisations in South Africa to migrant worker resistance in the Gulf, from forest workers in the Czech Republic to domestic workers’ structures in Hong Kong, this volume will bring together a wealth of lived experiences and hidden struggles for the first time.

Highlighting the changing nature of frontline struggles against exploitation, Just Work? proves that migrant workers are finding new and innovative ways of resisting neoliberal immigration measures. They are forced to fight against the precarious nature of jobs from both within and outside of traditional forms of labour organisations. With contributions from scholars and activists from around the world engaged in this resistance, this will be an accessible collection based on grass-roots experiences, placed in a political economy framework.
