It discusses the traditional barriers that these groups face in participating in the labour market, as well as the impact of discrimination on migrant and refugee job seekers. The paper also considers the long-term impact that economic downturns can have on migrant and refugee workers. In this context, the paper discusses the dangers of failing to protect the most vulnerable in our society during difficult economic times, and our human rights obligations as a nation. The need for strategies aimed at assisting particularly disadvantaged groups such as migrants and refugees is also ; discussed. ; It concludes with some suggestions and recommendations on ways to assist migrants and refugees to obtain employment during the economic downturn.
