How foreign workers are exploited in Finland

Tuesday, 03 April 2012
In a Finnish tight job market for foreigners, if they are invited to work for very low pay or for free they are very happy

For this reason, Finland losses of €600 - €700 million annually in lost tax revenue due to foreign workers who are deceived to work for unfair wages according to a recent report from the Finnish Police Board.

According to media reports, an increasing number of foreigners employed in the labour market means that most are exploited. These are mainly people who do not have linguistic proficiency and do not know the laws of Finland.

This takes place mostly in the construction and cleaning industries – where the problems have been uncovered. Estonian construction workers, for example, have no final contract payment of wages or holiday and overtime. At worst, salaries are even fully absent. Both the Finnish and Estonian employers have been guilty of exploiting workers.
