Dear Editor,

I am writing in regards to article 6 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) where everyone has the right of recognition everywhere as a person before the law.

A person’s status or position would suggest that he is not important in the society if he/she is poor or disabled and so manipulation, exploitation and underestimation consumes the well-being and the confidence of a person.

No one would deny that a rich person is respected and has power whereas a poor person is turned down of opportunities and considered unworthy. Whether a worker is from Fiji, Samoa or overseas, though they are working away from home, they still have their rights with them as employees.

As a student, I may not be mature yet, but I know what manipulation in the workforce can be like and how people are robbed of their rights.
