DOT Desk:  The Minu Memorial Award was established by a group of supporters of Minod Moktan, the late migrant worker and activist from Nepal, to commemorate his death and remember his accomplishments. Minu was his Korean name, reports Dhaka Tribune.  Shekh, 45, is a naturalized Korean from Bangladesh. He started work in a furniture factory in Namyangju of Gyeonggi Province after entering the country in 1992, reports The Korean Times.  But the poor working conditions and rampant discrimination against migrant workers led him to raise his voice representing fellow workers. Engaging in various labour rights activities since 2001, he was appointed as a senior member of the migrant workers’ union under the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions (KCTU) in 2013.  Shekh explained his future plans to address one of the most urgent issues among migrant workers ― bringing changes to the employment permit system (EPS). The governmental program allows foreigners from 16 countries to enter Korea and fill low-skilled jobs mainly in manufacturing or agricultural sectors.
