Are Filipinos working in other countries because of poverty? Or is it the latest trend and opportunities being offered? Over the years, poverty is one of the most common reasons why Filipinos are choosing to go out of the country to find a job that can sustain their needs as well as for their families.

More and More Filipinos Are Leaving the Country

In fact, the Philippines send more people to work abroad compared with other countries in the world. About 10 percent of the population in the country have worked outside the Philippines. Filipinos work in almost every country, except North Korea. In the United Kingdom alone, there are already 2.5 million workers while there’s nearly a million in Saudi Arabia and hundreds of thousands in the Middle East are working as domestic workers or skilled workers.

Overseas Filipino Workers work abroad to escape poverty and unemployment. By serving foreigners, these people can send their children to the best schools and provide a better future for the family.

If you think these are already the worst, she is experiencing more. In a Facebook video, she recalled that after suffering from abuse from the hands of her employers, they are also not paying her salary for three months.
