Migrants making mark in global workforce: ILO

The International Labour Organization shed light on new data which quantifies for the first time the extent to which a global migrant workforce estimated at 150.3 million people — 44 percent of them women — is carving a professional niche in the countries receiving them. At a time when mass migration, heightened by the conflict in Syria and economic crisis, has become a political hot potato the ILO said its calculations showed migrant workers make up almost three quarters — 72.7 percent — of a global migrant population which it puts at 206.6 million people of working age.
