Italy's migrant workers
Italien - die Flüchtlinge und die Mafia (Das Geschäft mit den Flüchtlingen)
Italy is currently the country in Europe that takes in the highest number of refugees. The majority of refugees and illegal immigrants come from Africa. Many of the men take badly paid jobs helping harvest fruit and vegetables in the fields of Southern Italy, while many of the women end up in brothels or as prostitutes. The Mafia has identified the illegal movement of refugees as business opportunity and is profiting from the misery of people looking for a safe place to live.
