And now they are not able to enjoy their hard earned income back home. The instructors advised everyone to go abroad with proper training and use the money earned back home. Migrant women workers brought up numbers of opinions to shape the public policies regarding migrant workers. One of the key points, they asked for more attention and active roles of Bangladesh embassies who are placed in destination countries in order to protect migrant workers’ interests.
