On the other hand Foreign owned recruitment agencies using Filipino dummies are easing out Filipino owned agencies with their wide contacts in the Middle East and capturing most of the available applicants in Mindanao through the use of illegal agents.    This was disclosed today by recruitment and migration expert Emmanuel Geslani who received reports from many local agencies deploying Household Service Workers that these foreign owned agencies have acquired many applicants in Mindanao by using these illegal agents who control many Muslim applicants and are paid $ 500 USD for every applicants they bring in to one of these recruitment agencies who are controlled by   Arabs.    Reliable source revealed that one agency is buying HSW applicants with passports at the rate of P 20,000-30,000 per head bagging many of the available mostly Muslim women. Geslani urged DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello III to order Undersecretary and POEA OIC Bernard Olalia to investigate the proliferation of local agencies with foreign ownership but mostly controlled by the foreign backers who are mostly Middle East personalities and some who are married to Filipinas to gain permanent residency in order to conduct their business.    Some sources also talks about some recruitment agencies collecting 2 months of the HSWs equivalent salaries in order to be deployed abroad. Unverified reports from different sources, mostly HSW applicants.   Source: Manila Bulletin        Read More:                   ©2017 THOUGHTSKOTO
