Southeast Asia is some of the worst places to work around the world, according to a survey @WSJecon

Today we have a survey showing the well-known truth in SE Asia: Lack of labour rights
The International Trade Union Confederation's Global Rights Index assesses where workers' rights are best protected by evaluating 97 indicators, including the ability of workers to join unions, organize strikes and access legal protections. It then ranks them on a scale of 1 (best) to 5 (worst).
Among the 139 countries surveyed, Southeast Asian countries came in at the bottom half of the index, with Cambodia, Malaysia, Laos and the Philippines scoring a 5. The trade union alliance said in its report that workers in those countries have no "guarantee of rights."
Worst Place to Work in Southeast Asia? Almost Everywhere
