"It is one of those issues many Jordanians prefer to sweep under the carpet. Cases of verbal, physical and even sexual assault of migrant workers at the hands of their employers are often dismissed by the general public and exacerbated by inadequate legal safeguards. Activists and legal experts tell Sheila M. Dabu that things won’t improve until the government starts building up and enforcing the law– and the public starts seeing foreign laborers as human."
