There are more than two million Filipinos who are working abroad. Each one of them has a different reason why they choose to be an Overseas Filipino Worker and be away from their family. We cannot deny that the most common reason people decide to become an OFW is to seek better opportunities outside the Philippines.

However, based on the recent Administrative Order released by the Department of Labor and Employment, several OFWs will lose the opportunity to work in Kuwait. Due to the fact that a lot of our Kababayans suffered at the hands of their abusive employers, many skilled workers will also lose their jobs in the Middle East.

But here is the good news: there are still a lot of countries where skill-based jobs are available. These countries have salary and benefits that are above-average for plenty of Pinoys.
