Alternative option for displaced Overseas Filipino Workers

Here's a news article regarding the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) displaced due to current global financial crisis.

NINE out of 10 displaced Filipino workers would rather go abroad again than become an entrepreneur here in the country, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) administrator Carmelita Dimzon said on Monday.

Dimzon said that during the counseling among the displaced workers, they found out that most of them preferred to be deployed again to a country where companies are not fully affected by the crisis.

“During the counseling, we were telling them some options whether they will be deployed again or they will avail the livelihood program, but most of them chose to go abroad because they have experienced working abroad and earning dollars,” she said.[Business Mirror]

Aside from the livelihood program offered by the Philippine Government, there is another option for displaced OFWs.
