Even worse is life in the hundreds of enclosed factories and sweatshops, where employees are routinely mistreated. At this NGO in Mae Sot, migrant workers are helped to file legal action against abusive employers. Among their cases are rapes, assaults, non payment of wages and the summary dismissal of employees who become pregnant. The NGO even deals with cases where employees are murdered so they do not have to be paid. The head of the NGO has received death threats himself.
