Isolated, unprotected and scared to speak out

In case you are able to engage your students into reading longer texts, I would like to recommend the following one that I found in the “Guardian online” today:

How the most vulnerable workers are targeted for sexual abuse

In this text and the personal story that it reveals, Bernice Yeung exposes readers to one of the dark sides of the contemporary world of work. Telling about sexual harassment, labour immigration, low-wage immigrants, and labour exploitation, it offers a sharp contrast to the often colourful world of Google, Apple, or Microsoft that conventional OB texts tend to portray.
