migrant worker

(redirected from Migrant Labour)

migrant worker

A farm labourer who is disenfranchised in the country in which he or she works, whose domicile changes as different crops are harvested.

The impact of migrant workers on the healthcare delivery system is poorly studied, but like other disenfranchised groups, such as the homeless, the poor and illegal aliens, are at increased risk for tuberculosis, violence, alcoholism and substance abuse. Approximately half of migrant labourers (US) are illegal aliens who not seek healthcare due to fear of deportation.
