Maintaining Data Quality and Ethics When Hiring Migrant Labourers

Major tech companies have consistently misused the personal data of their users over the past few years. In the global migrant labour industry, many companies and governments have insufficiently guarded migrant data, allowing it to be leaked to the public or stolen by hackers. When it comes to hiring migrant labourers, ethical data management practices must become a priority.

Companies that benefit from migrant labourers need strong humanist principles when it comes to data quality and management. Here’s how platforms like Joblio are ensuring migrant data isn’t being misused around the world.

Migrant data has already been leaked

Hundreds of thousands of migrants have already suffered from inappropriate data management practices that exposed their personal information to the world. According to a report from the Guardian, the personal details of at least 774,000 migrants and aspiring migrants to Australia was made publicly accessible following a data breach. Governments and the private companies they contract with have consistently illustrated that they’re not treating migrant data privacy issues seriously.

In addition to harmful data breaches, the global migrant labour industry is also plagued by harmful practices like extensive surveillance. Human Rights Watch has reported that Russian state authorities are considering tracking migrant workers with new technology. Governments with a demonstrable history of ignoring human rights may soon be closely monitoring the migrant labourers who make critical contributions to the global economy. This monitoring can easily turn into abuse if sensitive data isn’t closely safeguarded.

Technology is often a positive force in the global migrant labour industry, allowing employees and employers to communicate directly with one another. In certain parts of the world, however, migrant labourers may soon become the victims of unwarranted and excessive surveillance that collects personal data which is improperly stored. Software that intrudes and humiliates migrant labourers must be avoided at all costs if an ethical future for the industry is to be realized.

Reliable statistics don’t need to be intrusive

Ethical companies with strong humanist principles are needed to ensure that reliable statistics for the global migrant labour industry can be collected legitimately. Keeping track of where migrant labourers are heading doesn’t need to be an intrusive or humiliating process. By ensuring transparency when it comes to how data is collected and used, private companies can ensure that migrant labourers don’t become the latest victims of inadvertent data breaches or hacks.

Platforms like Joblio are leading by example with transparent and easily accessible privacy policies that inform users what data is being collected when they make use of modern apps and digital services. Reminding migrants of their rights is an essential part of maintaining ethics when it comes to data collection, management, and storage.

Organizations such as the Global Migration Group have provided clear guidelines for collecting disaggregated data on human rights without violating the personal privacy of individual migrants. Once this data has been collected and analyzed, it must be meticulously stored with user privacy taking on the utmost importance. In addition to facing social opprobrium, companies which fail to ethically manage migrant data could run afoul of local or international privacy rules and pay a steep price for their negligence.

Jon Purizhansky, CEO of Joblio, believes that “businesses must take responsibility for their data management practices.” Unethical behavior from corporate leaders and unclear corporate guidelines on data management will lead to the abuse of migrant labourer information. User profiles and background checks must be carefully safeguarded from hackers to ensure a smooth and ethical migration process.

Joblio ensures ethical hiring is easy

Platforms like Joblio are the best way to ensure global migrant labourers are hired quickly, easily, and ethically. Applicant biometrical data is carefully managed to ensure personal information is never inappropriately leaked. By circumventing harmful middlemen who abuse migrants during the recruitment process, Joblio also ensures migrant data doesn’t fall into the hands of recruiters who don’t care about the privacy of migrants.

“Thanks to our clear privacy policy, Joblio ensures no user is ever left in the dark when it comes to their personal information,” says CEO Jon Purizhansky. By working hand in hand with both employers and employees, Joblio ensures important data on global migration patterns can be collected in a sustainable, transparent, and ethical fashion.

For too long, major tech companies have abused the trust of their users while poorly safeguarding privacy. These days, platforms like Joblio are reinventing the global migrant labour industry without sacrificing ethics in data collection and management.

Joblio Inc. da Miami a Montecarlo per il CC Forum

Nel pomeriggio del 6 luglio, in una bella giornata di sole caldo, il Principato di Monaco ha atteso gli arrivi dagli States e da UK di chi, nel 2020, ha dato forma all’App e alla società Joblio Inc., avente sede a Miami (Florida, USA), e di chi ne è un prezioso advisor. Nell’ordine: il CEO Jon Purizhansky, l’ideatore, il Presidente David Arkless, ex Global President di ManpowerGroup, il CRO Michael Schvartsman, co-fondatore della società con Jon, e i consiglieri John Gavigan e Dennis C. Vacco.

Le interviste di Alessandra Basile:

Alessandra: Ho intervistato, al Meridien Beach Plaza di Montecarlo, gran parte di loro, persone di alto profilo professionale, capaci di mettersi in gioco con coraggio e determinazione per un goal umanitario rilevante sul piano, soprattutto, europeo e di impatto internazionale, in linea con il tema principale del CC Forum di Monaco che li ha prontamente ospitati, la sostenibilità.

Joblio: la sua piattaforma user-friendly:

Grazie a un team competente di professionisti rappresentanti di ogni parte del mondo, Joblio offre, attraverso la sua piattaforma user-friendly, un sistema di tracciamento centralizzato per la migrazione economica e garantisce il rigoroso rispetto degli standard umanitari internazionali.

Infatti, i miei intervistati mi spiegano che la piattaforma permette a un immigrato intenzionato a trovare lavoro, non solo di trovarlo facilmente con pochi passaggi sul proprio cellulare, ormai alla portata quasi di chiunque, ma anche di essere seguito prima di giungere nel paese ospitante e durante la sua permanenza del Paese che lo ospiterà, con una relativa formazione su cultura, leggi e lingua, fino al rientro in patria.

Il tutto grazie ad accordi governativi e a modelli di assunzione sostenibili, che potenziano l’economia internazionale nel nome dei diritti umani, a discapito delle attività criminali.

Investimenti a favore dello Sviluppo Sostenibile

Ceo e Presidente sono intervenuti alla Conferenza 2021 per gli Investimenti a favore dello Sviluppo Sostenibile, incentrata su innovazione aziendale e attività legislativa e interna al CC Forum, al quale hanno partecipato personalità quali Michael del Liechtenstein, Fondatore e Presidente della società Geopolitical Intelligence Services e Steven O’Brien, Segretario Generale del G20 Foundation.

Joblio mira a contribuire alla risoluzione delle problematiche migratorie globali con la rimozione della figura dell’intermediario dal processo di assunzione, creando un rapporto diretto fra datori di lavoro e futuri assunti, per garantire impieghi in condizioni eque e proficue. Si prevengono le frodi e si garantisce il rispetto delle leggi statali sul lavoro nelle fasi di ricollocazione del capitale umano.

Dal Comunicato Stampa di Joblio: ‘attualmente si stima siano 24.9 milioni i lavoratori sottoposti a condizioni di lavoro forzato, 16 milioni dei quali sono vittime di sfruttamento nel settore privato. Si ritiene che il lavoro forzato generi annualmente 150 miliardi di dollari USA a favore di terze parti che traggono profitto da standard di reclutamento poco trasparenti e da sistemi di pagamento corrotti.

In effetti, l’Organizzazione Internazionale del Lavoro stima che almeno 150 milioni di lavoratori lasciano, ogni anno, i propri Paesi d’origine per ricercare opportunità lavorative in un Paese estero.

Questa cifra aumenta annualmente’;‘nelle economie sviluppate, il profitto annuale per vittima di lavoro forzato è pari a circa $35,000. Buona parte di questo introito è intascata da reclutatori (..) che travisano volutamente le posizioni offerte dai datori di lavoro’.

Nel 2021, a Joblio è stato conferito il Premio “Excellence Innovation Award in Human Rights Protection” dall’Abrahamic Business Circle. La società contribuisce al salvataggio di vite umane.

Making Sense of Migrant Labour Community

Migrant labour plays a crucial role in both developed and developing communities. Nevertheless, the migrant labour community is frequently misunderstood by the companies, governments, and international organizations which depend upon the free movement of workers. The unique challenges these labourers face in the workplace are seldom understood by the businesses and publics which benefit from their presence.

It’s past time that we make sense of the migrant labour community that’s so vital for the growth of the global economy. Policy makers and business leaders must dedicate additional attention and resources toward migrant labour communities, a process that begins by understanding the plight of impoverished workers.

Migrant labour Continues to Rise

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted immigration patterns and disrupted both domestic and international supply lines of goods and labour. Nevertheless, recent years have proven that migrant labour continues to rise around the world. According to the 2020 World Migration Report from the United Nations, recent data indicates that there are approximately 272 million international migrants spread across the globe, nearly two-thirds of which are migrant labourers.

This represents a serious increase from the approximate figure of 150 million migrant labourers that the International labour Organization provided in 2013. These migrants seek work abroad in order to send economic remittances back home, often serving as a financial lifeline for their families and communities. Employers and political leaders must come to recognize migrant labourers as living people deserving of rights rather than cheap labor to be wielded like tools, – says Jon Purizhansky, the founder and CEO of Joblio.co.

The Impact of COVID-19

The economic impact of COVID-19 has decimated migrant communities around the world. With wealthy and working class professionals alike struggling to make ends meet, government relief efforts often ignore the vulnerable migrant labourers who contribute to their communities but enjoy little political representation. According to one report from the UN Migration Agency, migrants abroad have been forced to abandon their jobs and return home in record numbers. This leads to worse living conditions and contributes to labor shortages in critical sectors.

According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, for instance, the agricultural sector has been hampered by restrictions on international movement. A recent report from the FAO predicts a dramatic reduction in economic remittances sent from migrant labourers in agricultural sectors to their home countries. It also identifies disruptions to the production, processing, and distribution of agricultural goods that are a result of migrant labour shortages. Consumers will face higher prices, employers will struggle to fill gaps in the workforce, and migrant labourers will fall into unemployment at a record pace, – accents Jon Purizhansky.

The pandemic may also lead to shifts in the origin and destination countries of the migrant labour market. Global ethical recruitment expert and Joblio CEO Jon Purizhansky once noted that “global migration is a topic that impacts hundreds of millions of people around the world.” An ILO report concludes that three subregions alone (North America, Northern/Southern/Western Europe, and the Arab States) account for nearly 61% of the migrant labour population. Disparate vaccination rates in these regions could harm migrant labourers who play a critical role in maintaining the global supply chain.

Expanding Migrant Opportunities With Joblio

Despite the challenges facing the migrant labour community, companies like Joblio are working to expand the opportunities made available to international workers. By connecting workers directly to employers through cutting-edge technology, Joblio bypasses inefficient middlemen and streamlines the immigration process. As global labour markets reel in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, apps like Joblio will prove essential for the further development of economic sectors that depend upon migrant labourers.

To ensure ethical recruitment, Jon Purizhansky notes that “all applicants will undergo a medical examination 48 hours prior to arrival, including COVID-19 tests.” By prioritizing the health and wellbeing of workers, Joblio is ensuring that global health crises have a minimal impact on the international labour market. Businesses can’t do it alone, however; governments must take steps to ensure migrant communities are included in COVID-19 recovery plans. If migrant labourers are left behind, the critical economic sectors they contribute to will never fully recover.

Migrant labour communities depend on platforms like Joblio to secure fair wages, hospitable working conditions, and attention from policy makers. Enhanced human mobility will only serve to supercharge economic growth if employers and political leaders come together and ensure the most vulnerable communities receive the support they desperately need.

Understanding Benefits of Ethical Recruitment Process

Ethical Recruitment Process

Employers around the world depend upon migrant labour for growth, but this hasn’t halted the exploitation of migrants in vulnerable situations. Unethical middlemen continue to prey upon the same labourers who are responsible for substantial economic growth across the globe. Domestic entrepreneurs that ostensibly seek the best for migrant labourers often partake in unethical recruitment processes, believing they’ll derive a competitive advantage from lowballing workers.

When it comes to perpetuating unethical recruitment in the global migrant labour industry, there’s little for employers to gain and much to lose. Employers must come to understand that enforcing ethical recruitment standards is both an ethical imperative and a commercially savvy tactic, says Jon Purizhansky, the founder of Joblio, Inc, a technological platform that connects workers and employers.

Exploited workers are unproductive workers

Some unethical employers believe they can gain a leg up on the competition by relying on unethical recruitment practices. They mislead migrant labourers about the nature of the offered job and provide shoddy working conditions when they arrive in their destination country. Despite the economic allure of cheap labor and low overhead costs, exploiting workers is both an ethical mistake and a commercial misstep. Exploited labourers who are treated unfairly are logically unproductive and unmotivated. They’ll also contribute to expensive employee churn that ends up eating into employer profits.

Despite the financial wisdom that comes with an ethical recruitment process, many employers around the world continue to disadvantage themselves by harming migrants in vulnerable situations. According to a report provided by the Interfaith Center On Corporate Responsibility, approximately 21 million migrant labourers are currently trapped into conditions of forced labour. These victimized labourers generate approximately $150 billion in profits for other parties, yet their employers could derive greater profits by recognizing their humanity and offering a square deal.

Migrant labourers who receive adequate wages and are ensured safe working conditions are liable to remain in the same position, point out Jon Purizhansky, CEO and founder of Joblio, Inc. Rather than seeking greener pastures elsewhere, they’ll develop helpful skills that enable further professional development. The organizations that employ them will cultivate more valuable human capital and avoid ethical scandals or legal troubles that naturally arise from labour exploitation.

Guaranteeing the rights and interest of migrant labourers should thus be the main priority of employers seeking long-term growth and industry stability. The injuries, worker exhaustion, and high turnover rates that are naturally associated with exploitative recruitment practices are simply too costly to bear, as Professor Mark Gray points out in Human Organization.

A square deal for employers and employees

Employers seeking a competitive advantage should eschew unethical recruitment and embrace high standards of worker wellbeing. Doing so will benefit their bottom lines while improving the lives of migrant labourers. It simply requires embracing technology that enables employers and employees to communicate and bargain on a level playing field.

“Employers in the developed world are not directly connected to their prospective employees due to the chain of multiple middlemen currently positioned between employers and employees,” according to global relocation expert and CEO of an ethical recruitment platform Jon Purizhansky. He aims to remedy that problem through Joblio, a SaaS platform that ensures employers are compliant with labour laws and maintain high ethical recruitment standards.

By cooperating with local organizations to ensure the human rights of migrant labourers are vigorously maintained, platforms like Joblio will supercharge growth in the global migrant labour industry. This benefits the countless employers who depend upon migrants to swell the ranks of their workforce during periods of high consumer demand. It also cuts nefarious middlemen who exploit labourers out of the recruitment process altogether.

Solving the industry’s biggest problem

Unethical recruitment is a blight upon the global migrant labour industry. It preys upon vulnerable workers and leaves employers with a degraded and demoralized workforce. Corporate and government entities interested in long-term economic growth must recognize the importance of solving the industry’s biggest problem with disruptive technologies like Joblio’s platform, – says Jon Purizhansky.

With the help of digital technology that allows employers to circumvent the legal challenges of recruiting additional labourers, vital sectors such as agriculture and manufacturing will continue to grow. By allowing workers to strenuously advocate for their own interests, these digital platforms will create a level economic playing field that benefits employers and employees alike. Hiring managers and company owners that hold power over labourers must recognize that equitable and ethical hiring practices are the first step toward achieving sustained growth.

An Analytical Overview of Migrant Labor Market

Migrant Labor Market

The migrant labor market continues to contribute to the economic growth in both developing and developed regions. Jon Purizhansky, the founder of Joblio.co, points out that the important role played by migrant laborers in the international economy, many companies, governments, and international organizations lack information about the industries that these workers contribute to. Additionally, the origin points of many migrant laborers and the unique issues they face in the workplace are seldom understood by the businesses and ecosystems, which benefit from their presence.

This international labor market analysis explores the origins and destinations of migrant laborers in the contemporary marketplace. It also illustrates which economic sectors are dependent upon migrant labor for continued growth, and discusses why policy makers and business leaders must dedicate additional attention and resources toward migrant labor communities.

Migrant Labor Continues To Rise

Jon Purizhansky says that the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted immigration patterns and disrupted both domestic and international supply lines of goods and labor. Nevertheless, recent years have demonstrated that the number of labor migrants continues to rise around the world, a pattern that can be expected to continue as the pandemic recedes in the wake of a global vaccination effort. Jon Purizhansky also points to the 2020 World Migration Report issued by the United Nations, which indicates that there are approximately 272 million international labor migrants

This represents a serious increase from the approximate figure of 150 million migrant laborers that the International Labor Organization provided in 2013. As the global economy continues to recover from pandemic-induced recessions, labor migration will continue to rise as workers seek better wages and working conditions abroad. Nevertheless, pandemic-related travel restrictions will likely frustrate migrant laborers and their employers in the immediate future.

The Impact of COVID-19

Despite the increase in migrant laborers over the past few years, organizations which depend upon international data pertaining to migrant laborers must understand that COVID-19 will lead to serious disruptions in migrant data collection and analysis efforts for years. Jon Purizhansky mentions that assessments of migrant labor growth must account for pandemic-induced travel restrictions and job loss. Immediate shocks to the international economy have already been detected due to labor shortages which have arisen because of the pandemic.

According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, for instance, agricultural value chains and food supply systems have been impacted by restrictions on international movement. A recent report from the FAO notes that a dramatic reduction in economic remittances sent from migrant laborers in agricultural sectors to their home countries can be expected. It also identifies disruptions to the production, processing, and distribution of agricultural goods that are a result of migrant labor shortages.

Changing Destination Points

The pandemic may also lead to shifts in the origin and destination countries of the migrant labor market. Joblio.co founder Jon Purizhansky once noted that “global migration is a topic that impacts hundreds of millions of people around the world.” The impact of global labor migration is often felt more seriously in certain states than others; an ILO report concludes that three subregions alone (North America, Northern/Southern/Western Europe, and the Arab States) account for nearly 61% of the migrant labor population.

Given the disparate vaccination rate of these and other global subregions, migrant labor may flow to different destination countries in the near-future. Alternatively, regions which currently possess both a larger than average share of migrant laborers and better access to vaccines may further their advantage in the international migrant labor market. Regions such as Northern Africa, which currently hosts less than 1% of the migrant labor population, may struggle to attract more immigrants as a result of the pandemic.

Expanding Migrant Opportunities With Joblio

Despite the challenges facing the migrant labor market, companies like Joblio are working to expand the opportunities made available to international laborers. By connecting workers directly to employers through cutting-edge technology, Joblio bypasses inefficient middlemen and streamlines the immigration process. As global labor markets reel in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, apps like Joblio will prove essential for the further development of economic sectors that depend upon migrant laborers.

To ensure ethical recruitment, Purizhansky notes that “all applicants will undergo a medical examination 48 hours prior to arrival, including COVID-19 tests.” By prioritizing the health and wellbeing of workers, Joblio is ensuring that global health crises have a minimal impact on the international labor market. The migrant labor market may be experiencing growing pains, but services like Joblio are ensuring a healthy maturation of this critical economic sector.

CTF is supported by Headline Partner, Joblio

CTF is supported by its Headline Partner, Joblio, a technology-based platform and compliance engine that facilitates ethical recruitment.

Joblio is entering the UAE market, debuting its company to regional industry stakeholders at CTF. It aims to disrupt the region’s labour market by digitising the ecosystem, introducing ethics, transparency and efficiency.

In the spotlight will be Jon Purizhansky, the CEO and founder of Joblio and David Arkless, Chairman. Mr. Arkless is a regular advisor to governments in the United States, several European countries, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He is the founder of the Future Work Consortium, former president of the board of End Human Trafficking Now, co-chairman of the Business Coalition Against Trafficking, board member of the Education for Employment, and initiator of the UK Modern Day Slavery Act.

With the creation of the National Human Rights Authority, the UAE has identified a need for greater protection of migrant workers as part of its goal to empower vulnerable segments of society.

Since much of the UAE’s construction workforce is made up of people who are impoverished and cannot read, new laws to protect their rights are vital in the nation’s journey to ethical recruitment.

Jon Purizhansky, CEO and founder of Joblio says, “Joblio will help eliminate fraud within the global industry of international relocation of migrant workers. This will be done by using a platform that directly connects employers with foreign job applicants, leaving middlemen out of the picture. This complements the UAE’s mission to safeguard migrant workers’ rights, bringing the construction industry closer to ethical recruitment”.

Looking for employees?

Joblio’s technology-based platform disrupts the current international labor migration industry by introducing transparent and new compliance methods, thereby optimizing operations and creating new revenues for employers.

Today’s global labor migrant industry is a non-transparent, inefficient, and corrupt monolith run by shady middlemen who sell grossly misrepresented or even non-existent job opportunities to labor migrants. It is an understatement that the current system has multiple inefficiencies and losses. It causes pain to all the existing ecosystem members – employers, labor migrants, and governments alike. Migrant workers across various sectors, industries, and occupations face the risk of exploitation linked to unethical recruitment and employment practices that place workers in vulnerable situations, such as debt slavery or working in forced labor conditions.

Joblio disrupts the status quo by introducing transparency, efficiency, and compliance. By introducing its Ethical Recruitment Platform, which directly connects companies with jobseekers, Joblio creates benefits for all ecosystem participants. Our technology combined with our professional understanding of international migration laws and deep knowledge of the global recruitment landscape allows employers to efficiently and transparently hire staff from other countries.

Unlike traditional employment agencies or recruitment companies, the Joblio platform lays out new standards in the labor market and implements transparent and effective methods in international recruitment. You gain unlimited access to thousands of potential employees – permanent, temporary, or seasonal – for all levels of positions, from basic to managerial. You can find employees not just from Central and Eastern Europe, but also non-European markets: Africa, India, Asia, and Latin America.
The platform allows employers to connect directly with employees through one global Joblio recruitment network, using a filter based on location, experience, and availability that helps make employers search easy to find a suitable candidate.

The biggest assets of the Joblio platform are:

  • Operational efficiency optimization and revenue flows increase
  • Direct access to verified job applicants with no agents or middlemen involved
  • Streamlining work permit applications via a centralized and efficient collection of applicants’ data
  • Ethical Recruitment – free of charge for employees
  • The employer does not take on the costs of recruitment
  • Selection of applicants by skill-set, country of origin, and other factors
  • KYC and Identity Verification for all employees

Principles of cooperation between Joblio and the employer

One of the benefits of using Joblio is that the employer pays a salary directly to the employee. As a result, the employer does not incur additional, unforeseen, and previously unknown costs related to the recruitment of employees. The employee is able to see his final salary in the app. This transparency not only has a positive influence on employees’ outlook and work efficiency, but it also protects their human rights by ensuring that they are no longer cheated by unscrupulous middlemen.

The wage offered to an employee on a platform has to be in compliance with a binding law in a country (except in special cases, e.g. auxiliary work with the harvest, the wage cannot be lower than the minimum wage).

The employer settles up with the Joblio platform once a month. The basis of settling accounts is a list of workers who are hired by the platform, the number of working hours they worked or collected kilograms (e.g., the number of kilograms collected by the above-mentioned employees in a given month).

The procedure

  1. Joblio makes an appraisal of the demand for employees with the employer. We analyze the required competence needed and position profiles, as well as other expectations toward job candidates, including the level of compensation.
  2. We present our offer to the employers.
  3. Employer executes a contract with Joblio platform.
  4. The employer publishes (with our help) his job offer on our platform, and the prospective job applicants can see employers’ offers by browsing the Joblio App.
  5. After the employer publishes a job offer, candidates can search for it according to their own criteria, using a set of filters, making sure that the position received meets their needs and expectations.
  6. We contact our local foreign partners for the most effective possibility of recruiting candidates according to the orders received. Joblio maintains representatives globally who assist with regards to selection, job interviews, background verifications and reference checks, and applicant’s skill tests.
  7. The employer selects employees who have declared their willingness to work.
  8. The employer is able to select candidates among the applicants who have applied for the open employment positions.
  9. The employee processes the selected employees’ applications for the Work Permits in compliance with applicable laws of the host country. Joblio facilitates and catalyzes this process by collecting applicants’ data and documentation swiftly and efficiently.

Additional free services

Joblio provides assistance to the employers throughout the process of revocation/migration and then throughout the period of migrants’ employment. In addition, we educate employees about the culture, customs, and laws of the host counties.

We assure that all applicants will undergo a medical examination 48 hours prior to arrival (including COVID-19 tests).

On the day employees begin work, employers will be assisted by Joblio representatives, who are contact persons for them during these employees’ employment with your company. We are launching a special hotline for this purpose. If the employee does not match employer requirements, a replacement easily can be found on the Joblio platform within a brief window of time.

To create optimal efficiency, the Joblio platform provides employees with the ability to seamlessly and affordably transfer money back home.

Joblio creates a win-win solution for employers and workers alike.
Join us today and experience a completely new and cost-effective way of recruitment process!

Jon Purizhansky: Interview

Dmitri Dubov: And now we have here with us one of the leading specialists in the industry of global labor migration — American lawyer Jon Purizhansky. Hello Jon.

Jon Purizhansky: Hello Dmitri!

Dmitri: You and your friend and colleague Mr. Dennis Vacco — former New York State Attorney General, are frequent guests on our program War and Peace. I remember how at the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I asked you how this situation would affect the global landscape of labor migration. In your response, you predicted that country borders will eventually be more restricted and that in the future, we will need to have vaccination certificates to prove that you’re not carrying infectious diseases. Nowadays, we are seeing how governments, one after another, are issuing documents called “the green passports,” which will allow you to travel internationally. What are the other changes the industry of global labor migration has experienced over the last year?

Jon: According to the International Organization for Migration, in 2018 there were more than 250 million labor migrants. In reality, the actual numbers are unknown because the intercontinental migration, such as migration inside Africa or Latin America are not accurately accounted for. At the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we saw various restrictions adopted by several countries. However, labor migration movements from the underdeveloped into the developed countries did not stop despite the pandemic. Depending on how rapidly the global vaccination campaign progresses over time, world economies will begin opening up, and the industry of global labor immigration will continue to expand. Certain governments have already begun to require anti-body or vaccination certificates as prerequisites for admission into the country. Inevitably, labor migrants will continue to migrate from the third world into more developed countries. From the supply and demand points of view, the global industry remains the same and will continue to expand

Dmitri: As you mention, the global industry of labor migration is monstrously sized and is constantly growing. To some extent, you can even call this industry a byproduct of globalization. At the same time, this industry is filled with non-transparency and non-efficiency. In Israel, we have gotten used to seeing labor migrants from Asia, Africa, and the post-Soviet republics. Israel has many non-governmental organizations that protect the rights of international workers. Being a leading expert in this field, explain to us the causes of these problems and how can these challenges be addressed

Jon: That’s right, Israel actually is one of the leading countries in terms of protecting labor migrants’ rights. For the past three to four decades, the developed world has aged due to low birthrates and has built generational wealth. Irrespective of whether it’s Norway, Japan, Portugal, or Poland, citizens of the more developed countries are unwilling to perform the same type of work that their parents and grandparents engaged in. At the same time, the underdeveloped countries experience high birthrates, have weak economies, and a scarcity of job opportunities, which contributes to the growth of the global labor migration industry. As you mentioned, this industry is, unfortunately, very non-transparent. Around 90% of labor migrants worldwide are low-skilled or unskilled young people who come from remote areas of third-world countries. Employers in the developed world are not directly connected to their prospective employees due to the chain of multiple middlemen currently positioned between employers and employees. These middlemen sell opportunities to work abroad while to the potential labor migrants who are still in their home countries. The workers buying these opportunities have no way to validate the authenticity of the terms of employment that they’re being promised. Consequently, these prospective migrants pay hefty fees to various so-called agents and middlemen, who themselves are not always fully aware of what the real employment conditions are. As a result, when labor migrants receive work visas and then arrive to commence employment, they realize that their job conditions, their pay, etc… Are not what they had been promised. Hence, the workers end up running away or becoming illegal immigrants. These practices take place every day, worldwide on every continent. This gigantic industry’s core challenge is the absolute lack of transparency, which is especially problematic because labor migrants borrow vast sums of money to pay for the opportunities to secure employment abroad. The fact that jobs are being sold to labor migrants is the root cause of this industry’s problems. Currently, this industry is based on what the United Nations refers to as Unethical Recruitment Practices.

Dmitri: How does international law look at such unethical recruitment? Is it legal to receive payments for jobs with unverified conditions? How do the governments and international organizations look at that?

Jon: The majority of countries, including Israel, prohibit charging for international employment recruiting. Some countries are more effective than others. The governments of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia are very effective and are actually role models within this space. Both of these countries have even established Ministries of Human Resources to regulate the labor migration industry more efficiently. The Philippines is not too far behind either, as they’re trying to effectively regulate this field as well. In most countries, various laws and regulations prohibit middlemen from receiving payments for providing jobs for job seekers.

Dmitri: Let’s talk about globalization. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, there were less restrictions related to cross-border movements. How do the migrant worker movements affect the internal politics and stability in the host countries?

Jon: Great question! Migrant workers’ populations in many countries represent a rather high percentage of the local population. The UAE, for example, has more than 9 million people, of which roughly 8.5 million are migrant workers. Poland has attracted 2.5 million migrant workers, 670,000 of whom had received temporary residence in Poland, meaning that they will eventually become Polish citizens. The sociodemographic landscape is changing due to the migration of people from the 3rd world into the developed countries, and it inevitably affects political and social life in host countries globally

Dmitri: I know that less than a year ago, you founded a company called Joblio. Joblio has grown into a powerful social impact that protects the human rights of labor migrants while creating efficiency for the employers and transparency for government regulators. Please explain to us the concept of Joblio.

Jon: Joblio is a technological platform that provides a free opportunity for migrant workers to directly connect with prospective employers worldwide in circumvention of all so-called agents and middlemen. Joblio does not only match workers with employers directly and free of charge, but it also educates prospective migrants on host countries’ culture, customs, laws, and language, protects their rights post-arrival, and generally becomes the migrant worker’s best friend. Joblio is a social justice platform that disrupts the current inefficient and non-transparent ecosystem with compliance, efficiency, and transparency. As a result, everyone wins — the workers, the employer, and the government.

Dmitri: It sure seems that Joblio has gained virality due to its transparency features. In less than a year, your social justice project became an international project that operates globally on multiple continents. Joblio has gained recognition internationally from the IOM and various multinational corporations. What are Joblio’s plans for further growth and expansion?

Jon Purizhansky: Correct, Joblio is already in dozens of countries. Our plan is to become the global standard for global migration by bringing transparency, compliance, and security into this space. We’re hoping to be in every country within the foreseeable future. We are hoping to effectively cooperate with various international organizations, including the International Organization for Migration. Joblio is a technological platform that disrupts the current inefficient and non-transparent multi-trillion-dollar ecosystem by introducing transparency.

Dmitri: Thank you so much Jon and good luck!

Jon: Thank you, Dmitri.
