TWC2 featured in NTUC Lifestyle magazine

Posted by on January 14, 2012 in Media Coverage, News

NTUC Lifestyle magazine had a four-page feature on Transient Workers Count Too in their recent monthly issue. With a circulation of 294,000 this should give TWC2’s message a considerable boost.

The magazine’s reporter interviewed TWC2 treasurer Alex Au at Suthas restaurant on a weekday evening. As usual, it was a busy evening, and there was no shortage of workers coming forward with stories of hardship and injustice. The interview was repeatedly interrupted by casework.

That same evening, TWC2 exco member Debbie Fordyce was there too with two polytechnic students working on their projects relating to migrant workers, and NTUC Lifestyle  took the opportunity to have a brief conversation with them.

Meanwhile, regular volunteers such as Corinne (picture in the header) were fully occupied attending to the steady stream of workers coming in. It was a busy evening that gave the reporter a rounded picture of not just what TWC2 does, but also how important our work is to workers, and of the scale of the problem.

TWC2 is an organization that is dedicated to assisting low-wage migrant workers when they are in difficulty. We are motivated by a sense of fairness and humanity, though our caseload often exceeds our
means.
