Philippines: pre-decision and information kit

1 January, 2009
Choosing to work abroad is a big decision that entails careful research, analysis and preparation from the aspiring migrant worker. Especially in the Philippines where poverty and lack of opportunities are so widespread, many Filipinos are enticed and compelled to seek better prospects in other countries, thereby increasing the number of people desperate to find work abroad, and alongside it, the number of malicious people ready to cash in on the growing industry. Thus, it is not uncommon to hear stories about innocent Filipinos getting victimized by illegal recruiters and scammers.

The PSI affiliates in the Philippines consisting of the Alliance of Filipino Workers (AFW), Confederation of Independent Unions in the Public Sector (CIU), Public Services Labor Independent Confederation (PSLINK) and the Philippine Government Employees Association (PGEA) have supplied here as part of the Pre-Decision Kit critical information that every aspiring Filipino migrant health care worker needs to know before leaving to work overseas. The information included here is specifi cally intended to provide the aspiring migrant worker information on illegal recruitment, ways to avoid illegal recruitment, reintegration programs and support services for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and directories of government agencies and non-government organizations (NGOs) and trade unions concerned on migration.
