Abstract

Long working hours among the migrant workers were regarded by academic discussants both as a cause for concern and as a super-saving strategy for transnational investments back home. However, there is a lack of systematic research as to whether or not migrant workers find their working hours too long or wish to have them reduced. The evidence retrieved from the Annual Population Survey points to a marked desire among migrants to work shorter hours, despite the recessionary climate. By filling the research gap specifically into the reasons behind such a desire, this paper will inform not only egalitarian policies but also an improved supply-demand management in the labour markets. Predicated on a logistic regression modeling, the results suggest that using an intersectional approach by covering various demographic and work-related characteristics helps explain migrant workers’ demand for shorter hours. The influential factors considered are conceptually framed by advancing a ‘special model of gendered confidence’.
