Sa aming pakikipagrelate sa  mga migrants ang mga ussual reasons bakit naga-abroad  are:

a.    Lack of employment opportunity

b.    Low salary sa Pilipinas

Alam ko po maraming domestic worker diyan sa Hong Kong. Sa community po ninyo, ang trabaho po ba nila ay domestic worker din nung nasa Pilipinas sila? O minsan nasa skilled positions na sila at napupunta sa domestic work?

Mar 26 11:17 AM

Ussually yung mga napupunta dito na Domestic Workers ay mga workers din sa Pilipinas sa Factory, mga plain house wife, at marami yung professionals speacilly mga education graduate at nurse/midwife. Bihira yung mga domestic workers din sa pilipinas bago pumunta dito.

Opo yun po yung tinatawag na brain drain di ba, kapag yung professionals pinipili mag domestic work sa abroad. Ibig po sabihin, mas mataas talaga ang kinikita ng domestic worker sa HK kaysa sa professional sa Pilipinas minsan ano?

Opo! Nakikita ko nga minsan sa tiktok (bago na-ban diyan sa HK) na ang kinikita ng domestic worker na nagpost ay 45k. Kumpara mo nga naman sa 6.5k monthly minimum wage ng domestic worker sa Metro Manila!

Well yes we can say na socially accepted na sya dahil wala namang choose ang family kung di umasa sa pag-aabroad para matugunan ang pangangailangan ng pamilya at dahil hindi namn madali sa ordinaryong pamilya na ang Padre de familia ang lumabas ng bansa dahil sa limitasyon din ng job offers sa ibang bansa, so si nanay ang magsasacrifice.

Relate na relate. domestic worker din po ang mama ko. Masscom graduate. Pero hindi niya kikitain sa Pilipinas ang kinita niya noong nag domestic work sya sa UK. Mas malaki sahod niya kesa professionals.

In my case wala magsasabi nyan sa community namin. Sa hirap ng buhay, ang goal ng maraming pamilya ay makapag abroad. Kapag nag ofw ang nanay, swerte ang anak.

11:31 AM

Yung social cost ng migration yung often undiscussed. Dahil purely economic natin tiningnan ang issue. Pero wala namang data ang nagsasabi kung marami bang na-strain na relasyon ang pagu-OFW. If I had my way, walang magu-OFW sa pamilya. But in this economy -- saan ang choice?

Her story was super inspiring! She didnโ€™t have any connections to the photography industry in Dubai, but she still took the plunge to migrate and pursue her career there more than a decade ago. Today, sheโ€™s a self-made creative director, and has worked with big names like Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Adidas, Netflix and more โœจ

02:31 AM

Whatโ€™s also really cool is how in her own photography/videography company, she still prioritizes hiring Filipinos from the PH, even if they might need more training than Filipinos or foreigners already in the UAE.

02:32 AM

Glad to have had her in the studio to share her story with us!!

How do you feel about the Philippine Bureau of Immigration deporting Pokwang's ex-partner?

๐Ÿ˜ - I'm happy they deported him.
๐Ÿ˜ฎ - I'm surprised by the deportation decision.
๐Ÿ˜ก - I'm angry about the deportation.

Hi. This is John Elton.
8:15AM. We werenโ€™t able to go back home kasi wala pang notice from the office kahit may notice na from the government kaya tumuloy pa rin pumasok. Pero along the way, sobrang lumakas po yung ulanโ€” as in zero visibility. Stucked in traffic for 4 and a half hours going to the office (Al Quoz area) may traffic na kasi tumaas na yung tubig pero buti nakasuong yung bus namin dahan dahan pero nakakatakot din kapag mastuck sa gitna ng tubig. After reaching the office 1:00PM-ish, stayed for almost an hour an received an update na pwede na umuwi using companyโ€™s service 1:45PMโ€“ of course, traffic along the way kaya naghanap ng bagong route going to International City pero from Emirates Road na kami, 3:05PM humagupit ulit yung ulan and need namin magpatuloy kahit wala nang makita sa highway and rinig na rinig na may onting/maliliit na yelo/hail storms na tumatama sa bintana namin na may kasamang sobrang lakas na hangin. 3:55PM, nawala na yung malakas na ulan, stucked ulit sa traffic. Nakakatakot na kasi yung iba walang baon na pagkain or tubig, kahit payong wala kasi di namin ineexpect yung nangyare, may matatanda na ayaw din maglakad kasi takot din. Nagdecide na kami ng mga kasama kong Pinoy at Indians to walk from Warsan, International City Phase 2 papuntang Phase 1 kasi dumidilim na (was 5:46PM- stucked pa rin sa traffic for almost 4hrs ulit?). Sobrang takot namin kasi habang naglalakad kami may baha, malakas na ulan at hangin na may kasamang kidlat at kulog, di na namin ininda lahat yun at nagpatuloy umuwi ng bahay. For 30 mins. namin binaybay ang Warsan to International City 2 which is lubog din sa baha mostly ng daanan. Thankfully, nakauwi kaming safe โ€“ sobrang basa nga lang pati mga gamit.

In Case You Missed It: Did you know that at least three overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) were reported killed due to flash floods in the United Arab Emirates this week? Two suffocated in their vehicle during the flood, while another was killed when his vehicle fell into a sinkhole at the height of the flooding.
