Are Filipinos modern day slaves in the Arab world?
« on: March 15, 2019, 11:21:52 PM »
I keep reading about Filipinos getting killed and raped with immunity in these Arab countries.  I mean why the hell would you go to the Middle East?

Just one country:

Currently, he said, there are an estimated 1.5 to 1.8 million Filipino migrant workers in Saudi Arabia, of which about 700,000 are domestic helpers and the rest professionals and skilled workers.

700,000 Filipinos working as domestic workers in ONE islamic country.  That is like twice the population of Iceland.

10 million overseas workers labor night and day to send money back to the PI but the PI is still a shithole after all these decades.

https://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2018/12/filipino-workers-return-from-overseas-philippines-celebrates/

Recuerdo is one of an estimated 10 million Filipinos—roughly a tenth of the country’s population—who work overseas as a way of escaping unemployment, low wages, and limited opportunities at home. The money sent back by overseas Filipino workers (known as OFWs) amounts to $31 billion a year—about 10 percent of the Philippines’ gross domestic product. Filipinos are domestic workers in Angola and construction workers in Japan. They staff the oil fields of Libya and are nannies to families in Hong Kong. They sing on the stages of far-flung provinces in China and help run hotels in the Middle East. A quarter of the world’s seafarers are Filipino.

It’s a phenomenon that has reshaped the economy and the education system in the Philippines. Each year about 19,000 nurses, certified and fresh from language training, are deployed to hospitals around the world.

Meanwhile educational institutions and vocational schools in the Philippines funnel students into industries likeliest to get them a job abroad. Merchant marine academies, like nursing schools, churn out thousands of graduates yearly. Training centers for domestic workers school women in how to set a table according to different cultures’ standards, fold a sheet into tight hospital corners, and whisper a greeting in Arabic or Chinese. Government agencies were founded to deal with the migration of registered workers, negotiate international labor terms, and rescue workers when a diplomatic row flares up or a war breaks out—as when a delegation of government officials traveled to Syria to find domestic workers and ferry them to safety.

The steady stream of cash from Filipino workers abroad has helped edge poorer families out of poverty, and houses built with cash from migrant workers have sprouted up in the rice fields of backwater provinces.

In the Philippines, December is celebrated as the national month for overseas workers. Movies and television shows romanticize their hardships and dedication. Those who are part of the diaspora are called bagong bayani—the new heroes—for sacrificing themselves for the betterment of their families and the country.

10,000+ recently arrived Filipinos now call Vietnam home.  I think there are less than 1000 Vietnamese living in the Philippines, and most of them are long term settlers from the refugee years.


how do you get invited to one of these Pinoy parties in Saigon?

Gosh, we do not need any more dark skin peasants in our country because we already have too many. The requisite must be light skin, tripple digits IQ, Corean, and atleast 3000k in checking account by 30, and 600k by 35, 1 million by 40.

I was planning to deport all the dark skin Viets to Laos or Cambodia and replace them with beautiful Coreans. Gosh, these low IQ, dark skin Viets are the definition of poverty, and the destruction of our race.

Filipinos are naturally addicted to travel because we descend from Ocean going nomadic Malayo-Polynesians.
