Despite the issue of abuse being common nowadays, there’s still a lot of Filipinos who are determined to work abroad. This is because the salary here in the Philipines is not enough to make every Filipinos life better.
Maybe it’s true that some Filipinos have found great fortune here in the Philippines. However, we must admit that these Filipinos are the ones who hold exceptional degrees – doctor, engineer, accountant etc. But how about those who only finished high school or vocational courses? Can they find a better, high-paying job here in the Philippines? Sadly, they can’t. That’s why we can’t blame other Filipinos who still wanted to work abroad despite the issue of abuse being natural nowadays.
Another issue of OFW abuse
Another Overseas Filipino Worker is seeking help for her current situation abroad.
Jessica Gomez Bucto dela Cruz posted on Facebook and asks for help. According to her, she’s in Al Qassim Burydah Saudi Arabia. Jessica asks help from everyone because her employer keeps on hurting her physically. She also added that she can’t present any documents because they aren’t in her possession. In addition, Jessica said that her agency is Bukwang Prime International and seems like her agency had not made any steps to help her current situation.
“Ako po si Jessica Gomez Bucto Dela Cruz.nanditu po ako sa Al Qassim Buraydah Saudi Arabia.Sir #Raffytulfo ako po ay humihingi ng tulong sa inyu cnu man po makabasa netu.ang agency ko po Bukwang Prime International. sinasaktan po ako dtu.wala ako hawak ng kahit na anung papeles kya wala po ako maipakita na kahit na anu.sana po marescue nyu ako ngkulung po ako sa rum ko.sinaktan po ako.kinuha pa cp ko.tulungan nyu po ako dtu para u nang awa gustu ko nang umuwi.hirap na po ako palala napong sinasaktan ako.”
We can only hope and pray that OFWs who chose to gamble abroad finds a good fortune to where they are. And that Philippine economy may improve that Filipinos won’t feel the need to work abroad anymore in order to have a good life.
