Going abroad to work is a community initiative. And nowhere is that more obvious than in and around the POEA offices. There’s an air of camaraderie and in the minutes and hours the aspiring migrants spend there, they self-organise into clusters – by the provinces they come from, the countries they are going to, the jobs they are undertaking, the returnees and the newbies. The advice – both formal and informal – is rarely empowering.
