Marchands de sommeil, les nouveaux profiteurs de la précarité

By Gabriel Tejedor & Antoine Harari

The Filipino community in Geneva continues to grow, yet it is one of the most discreet. Undocumented for the most part, its members live in hiding, at the mercy of crooks. Unable to legally obtain a housing lease, many are forced to rely on slumlords. These unscrupulous characters profit from their misery by renting rooms at 3 or 4 times the market price. An exclusive Temps Présent investigation on a still little-known subject.
