How far can the greed of slum landlords go? This investigation into the living conditions of Filipino workers in Geneva reveals a sordid traffic in which an apartment can be rented by the room at exorbitant prices, sometimes to more than ten sublessees per flat. Through this case where the slum landlord was herself Filipino, this report questions the foundations of the grey economy and the migration policies that make such exploitation of poverty possible, even on the doorstep of one of the richest countries in the world.
