Filipinos on the loose

There's a clear gulf here in understanding why this happens, and while migrant groups tend to push aside the issue of economic migration, I don't see the Council of Labor Affairs doing much to open any dialogue.


Why Taiwanese companies say their foreign workers ran away:

- instigation by other foreign workers
- imminent expiration of the employment contract.

Why migrant workers say they ran away:

18% said they suffered abuse
39% found their work too hard
24% stated they were about to be repatriated
6% had finished their contracts
13% gave other reasons
