FLEX has published a new report revealing a range of labour abuses and risk of exploitation in London’s construction sector, including workers not being paid, being physically and verbally abused, and being forced to work in dangerous conditions. Their report, “Shaky Foundations: Labour Exploitation in London’s Construction Sector” draws on interviews and surveys with migrant construction workers in London to shine a spotlight on the labour abuses present that can lead to exploitation.

This short animation presents the research’s findings in brief.
