what do you think are the advantages and disadvantages of being an OFW? in your opinion what are the disadvantages and advantages of an OFW? Of course when one will work abroad, he will have sufficient income to support the family but he would be away from them and it is not easy to live away from loved ones. What is your idea about this situation? Hope to hear from you.

Many of my classmates work abroad for higher pay,it's their main motive. well, for me, i choose to stay where i am even the payment doubles cause i think it's not worthwhile to compensate for the things i give up like being with my family, hanging out with friends. and when i feel like a long rest, i can ask for a leave or change my job. in a word, i decide who i am , don't have to worry about the rent, fees as long as i stay at home.

The disadvantages of OFW is always been the feeling of homesickness. Away from your love ones is very hard. The adjustment and the cultural shock is another thing. The advantage is the salary. You will earn higher in other country, than your own country.
