Decent Work Day today is celebrated around the world to draw attention again to the need for work that is productive, that delivers a fair income and equally importantly work in which the protection of labour rights is a fundamental and irreplaceable element of national policies and strategies. The new Global Estimates of Modern Slavery report released by the International Labour Organisation indicates that 24.9 million workers in 2016 were in modern slavery. One in 10 was working in the fishing and agriculture industries.
