Bali still needs migrant workers

Despite the animosity that a large number of Balinese silently harbor toward non-Balinese migrant workers, the island needs them to cope with the growing demand for manual laborers, especially in the construction industry.

Their role is critical in turning the economic wheel, particularly in the trade and construction sectors. As of September there were 839,373 non-Balinese temporary residents in Bali, a large majority of which are migrant workers. In recent years, cities and villages in Bali routinely launch operation targeting non-Balinese migrant workers and those who are found without proper ID cards would be deported back to their hometowns in the neighboring islands of Java and Lombok.
