High-profile media investigations have long suggested that underpayment of migrant workers is widespread. But concrete evidence has been lacking. Grattan Institute’s upcoming report presents new evidence that shows exploitation of migrant workers in Australia remains widespread. And underpayment is also a significant problem for Australian workers.
