The life of an overseas Filipino worker is not easy. They will leave their country and go far away just to support their family. Usually, most people think that life is easy outside their own country, but after all, they do not see the pain and sacrifice of our OFW brothers.
One of the proofs of this is the suffering of domestic helpers. Their job is difficult and it can be even more difficult if you will have a cruel boss. An OFW shared his humiliating status with his work.
He shows how she picks up the leftovers of his boss in the trash can so that he can just eat, which is what some domestic helpers do.
“Hahaha parang ako lang din. Reality ginagawa ko din yan kesa magutom, diskarte lang.”
Sadly there are more OFWs involved in this situation as well. Several OFWs were moved by his story on social media, and shared that they also witnessed it. They don’t like it, so they try to do it even if they didn’t want to, just to send money to their families.
As a result, this revelation reaped a variety of reactions on social media. There are other netizens who are shocked at this kind of situation by our countrymen abroad. According to others, the rights of OFWs should be exercised for their own safety.
“Huwag kang pumayag na ganyan gagawin sa yo ng amo mo. Hindi masama mag-demand sa kanila kasi obligasyon nila yan,”
this is the statement of a netizen. He urges fellow OFWs who suffer from this kind of treatment to speak out and defend their rights.
