Worse: the employers often confiscate the passports of the
newcomers and pile up this cheap labor force in camps
at the periphery of the cities...
that guarded camps and prohibited visitors like me!
This Filipino mechanic however keeps a smile on his face, even if for 3 years he has not been in his native country.
The shade of modern slavery does not drop very far...
Reminder: from time to time, a sad story came out about Philippines girls held against their will by rich emirs.
