Abstract: This paper strives to assess the characteristic features of the ‘alien labourers’ and the range of services that they render in the island of Montserrat. Data are drawn from secondary data contained in the archives of the Labour Commissioner’s Office. The data have been re-formatted and analysed in SPSS. The study seeks to examine characteristics associated with tenure and labour market services rendered by such labourers. The findings are interpreted in the context of development initiatives pursued by the Government of Montserrat and articulated in the island’s Sustainable Development Plan.
Keywords: work permits; labour market; foreign workers; Sustainable Development; Montserrat; economic migrants; sexual division of labour; population dynamics
