Migrant Workers’ Centre organises free movie screenings for 10,000 Singapore foreign workers

More than 10,000 foreign workers will get to watch free movies today.

The Migrant Workers Centre (MWC) is holding free movie screenings for foreign workers as part of its annual May Day celebrations this year.

The movies include new releases such as The Amazing Spiderman 2 and Godzilla, and they are screened at the Cathay Cineplex, dormitories and the foreign workers activity centre at Soon Lee Road.

The free movie screenings are held “to recognise and show appreciation to our migrant workers for the hard work and dedication as part Singapore’s workforce, and their role in contributing to Singapore’s economy,” said the National Trades Union Congress-backed MWC in a statement today.

Besides the movie screenings, the MWC also promised to lobby to improve foreign workers’ welfare by pushing for their salaries to be paid through Giro and having a model contract for employers to use.
