“Most migration today is linked directly or indirectly to the search for decent work opportunities. Even if employment is not the primary driver, it usually features in the migration process at some point.
There are an estimated 258 million international migrants. The ILO estimates that there are roughly 150 million migrant workers.
Among migrant workers, 56 percent are men and 44 percent are women.
Migrant workers account for 4.4 percent of all workers and have higher labor force participation rates than non-migrants globally (73 percent and 64 percent respectively).”
