Migrant Workers Centre
Migrant workers in Victoria are sometimes treated like an underclass. We face language and cultural barriers, insecure employment arrangements, discrimination and sometimes precarious visa arrangements. These things make us vulnerable to bad employers.
The Migrant Workers Centre helps migrant workers in Victoria connect with other migrant workers, understand our rights and get empowered to enforce them.
The Migrant Workers Centre can:
- Educate workers about issues regarding workplace safety and rights
- Assist workers from emerging communities to address problems they encounter at workplaces
- Collaborate with community partners to organise events and grassroots campaigns focusing on workplace rights for migrants
- Bridge language barriers that limit workers’ access to information
- Promote workplace rights on our own media platforms, as well as mainstream and ethnic community media outlet

Monga Lounge, Pay Up!International students and all migrant workers are being ripped off far too often by dodgy employers. This is just a taste of what bosses should expect if they steal from international students and all other migrant workers including refugees, asylum seekers, working holidaymakers and temporary visa holders. It's stories like this that prove why we need to change the rules to stop endemic wage theft and stop dodgy bosses from ripping off all workers.69 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Wallace Huang
不要將我們的簽證系統私有化簽證工作應由受過充分訓練和經驗豐富的公務員負責，而不是交給以盈利爲目的的公司。 自由黨一再利字當頭，置人民和國家與不顧。對於公共事業服務，你不能指望自由黨。 讓我們告訴自由黨，我們不想看到澳洲的簽證系統變得越來越昂貴，並給我等移民家庭帶來越來越多的煩惱 – 現在就在請願書上簽字。9 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Josephine
Don't privatise our visa system!This work should be done by public servants who are highly trained and experienced, not private companies who just want to make a profit. Time and time again the Liberals put profits before people and the good of our nation. You can’t trust the Liberals with our public services. Tell the Liberals that you don’t want to see Australia’s immigration system become more expensive and more difficult for migrant families like mine – sign the petition now.47 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Josephine
