Bangkok – The clusters of yellow shipping containers sitting on a bleak parcel of land on the dusty outskirts of Bangkok are a symbol of Thailand’s growing dependence on migrant workers.
Children play among the containers, shouting in Cambodian and Thai. The makeshift village in the city’s Bangphlat district is home to around 700 migrant workers from Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. In the evening, trucks bring sweaty workers, men and women, back from their jobs on construction sites.
