Cambodian Migrant Workers: Searching for Hope amidst Uncertainty *RERUN
Each morning, Cambodian day laborers in Phnom Penh line up to seek work for the day, hoping that they may find enough for them to eke out a living. But in recent years, the laborers have been pursuing a new option: Traveling abroad to work in countries such as Thailand, Japan and South Korea. Several years of work in any of these countries could net them enough to live comfortably in Cambodia. With help from new businesses such as language schools and mediation companies, these pioneers set off on their own journeys to unfamiliar lands, all in hopes of bringing home better lives to their families.
