Trafficking of Filipinos in Haiti worsening | Inquirer Global Nation

FilCom and Philippine Embassy sources said at least 40 more Filipinos have arrived in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince since the embassy exposed the illegal deployment of 26 workers last year, many of whom remain jobless or are able to find only part-time work, and at rates much lower than the $2,000 to $3,000 managerial posts promised them by the recruiters.

The workers are duped into coughing up as much as P500,000 in exchange for high-paying supervisory and managerial phantom jobs in factories and resorts.

“This is simply appalling,” lamented Marieflor Tuibeo, FilCom secretary said in an email to FilAm Star. “Some of those who have been here for months are still without jobs and now we are seeing more of our fellow workers coming. Something must be wrong here.” via | Inquirer Global Nation
