In the post-colonial, global economy, human labor has become a leading Philippine export. More than 8 million Filipinos—about 10% of the working-age population—are working overseas. In 2007, it is estimated these workers sent $15 billion (US) home to the Philippines. Some would argue that this infusion of capital is in the national interest, but at what cost to individual Filipinos, their families and the fabric of Filipino society?                                       The children’s photo is by Amaryllis T.
