Foreign employment has also become a source of lucrative business for a number of recruiting agencies. Many migrant workers recruited through recruitment agencies or brokers are given bogus or misleading information about their job. In general, this would relate to the wages they would receive, the type of work they will do and the number of hours they are contracted to work each day . Most of the recruitment agencies work through a channel of local sub-agents or intermediaries, who become trustworthy to local youths, thus the vulnerability of being victim of deceptive agencies rises. On top of that, lack of knowledge on the process of migration among the youths helps complexion of the problem to greater extent. They lack education, information about recruiting procedures, and the financial means to contract recruiting agencies . Due to lack of proper knowledge and awareness about the process of migration among the migrant workers stringed with no or insufficient knowledge about the destination countries and the work, employers, working conditions and the like provide ample ground to the labor exploitation and other human rights violation.
