      Q.C., Philippines

If this amendment would be approved, it would be an additional burden to millions of Overseas Filipino Workers who are already contributing so much for the Philippine Economy. We, the OFWs around the world, the one they called Modern day Heroes, are actually their Modern day Milking cows!

      A levy that OFWs do not get anything in return is not a fee worth a crap. Smells like this is another way of stuffing a croc's pocket within the institution.

      I signed this petition to show that I really opposed this amendement , this is another corrupt moved by those people behind this idea, they've called us Modern Day Heroes, but they've just made it look like that , the fact is, we're not, " We are their Modern Day Milking Cows " and what benefit we've got from OWWA, it's one BIG " NOTHING "....

      I do not agree that paying more will change the way the government work - react towards the plight of our Kababayan overseas.

      We need transparency, accountability and preparedness not more money milked from OFW

      Because I am tired and sorry for all of the OFWs who have been working 16 to 18 hours/ day to earn a living but a lot of those money grabbing politicians in the Philippines living like royalties, spending the money that this OFWs have earned. I CAME FROM A VERY BIG FAMILY, AND A LOT OF US HAS MADE OUR WAY OUTSIDE THE PHILIPPINES, I AM A CANADIAN CITIZEN AND A GREEN CARD HOLDER BUT how about those that are still making their baby steps towards their dreams? And I am not saying just my family.......ALL OF THE OFWs....GOD LUCK AND GOD SPEED!
