It was April 18, 2009, Saturday were 1 on an aspiring OFW applied for a certain position at the Jenerick International Manpower, Inc located at Dian corner Casino St., Palanan Makati . An aspiring OFW reported us with a lot of incredulity after being faced in a panel interview with a Bahrain National as a representative of a certain recruitment agency in Bahrain.

Since the said aspiring OFW is new in the overseas career, it is still the time of observing about overseas job interview for the second time which not even given a chance to explain their part, their experience and their wants but right-away given the following information:

• The salary is Fixed (The salary is very low)
• 6 days a week (work)
• No overtime pay at any work or any load given to an OFW how long he/she would stay at night just to finished the job (This is a simple, basic form of slavery)
• If the 2 year job contract would not be completed, the OFW would be charged for all expenses from VISA Processing to plane tickets spent for them
• No food allowance

First and foremost is from being far from your family. Do you think that it is okay for you to have a very low salary, uncompensated at your most effort, and work in a very hot weather country, high risk from abused (sexually or job related), discrimination, with very hard work, overload, at no pay?

Based in our survey, Filipino working overseas are fast learner, very dependable, hard-working, good multi-tasker, and naturally born skillful and smart. Because of this, it would be supposed to be a big thing to be considerer by an employer to give value this kind of employees but instead were being abused in a form of slavery.

It such termed as slavery for qualifying the following issues:

1. Low salary

2. Very Heavy work opposite from what had been stated in the contract, overworked, underpaid.

3. Contracted to a certain job position with a certain salary amount but will work overload without overtime pay to more than one (1) job functions. This is a form of abusing the skills and capability of an OFW without giving any incriminations and incentives.

4. As a good worker with a high rate of Efficiency and Effectiveness, he/she must be compensated for being far from the family considering the emotions, longingness of the family, stress and family stability risks issues

5. The Bahrain is part of the Middle-East where the climate is not a healthful climate to a human being for being having so hot temperature mostly resulting to heat stroke.
6. The risk of the OFW must be considered also especially many issues that Filipino men and women are raped in many parts of the Middle-East. ( so the risk here is very high)

The aspiring OFW reported to us for his/her worry that some of the women were accepted the offer just to have work without thinking the high risk place where they would heading through.

Now if this Jenerick Agency is thinking for the well of their fellow Filipino, then why did they cater this kind of employer? Are they just thinking of Money, Money and Money to have commission after selling other Filipinos abroad at low price?

I hope the Jenerick will think of this many times before doing this again.. If you cater employer practicing slavery then, you must be liable to the victims and you must faced the violations from the Law of the PHILIPPINES you made for allowing those events to happen.
