Quote of the Day (07-04-2014)


"In recent years, the rise of real wages & expansion of the construction industry has led some analysts to argue that migration (even short-term migration) is no longer distress-driven but demand-led, resulting from the rapid economic growth that has led to a proliferation of non-agricultural jobs in urban and peri-urban areas. The implicit corollary is that this is associated with significantly better conditions of migrant workers, as employers are forced by labour market pressures to offer a better deal for workers."
