United forces of private External labour recruitment, Migrant workers and Traininers remained the on

United forces of private External labour recruitment, Migrant workers and Traininers remained the only window to save business and promote workers' welfare and rights protection. By Kayonde Abdallah While government of Uganda has failed to renumerate well and provide better welfare services to some of its public servants, private sector players in the erea of recruitment and employment of workers abroad should not relay or expect the same government to mind about their private workers' welfare and protection overseas regardless of the enormous remittances from it. It's therefore very imperative for private sector players to take responsibility for the welfare and protection of their workers overseas especially they can not avoid this business. This includes providing adequate training and preparation before deployment, ensuring safe working conditions, providing proper accommodation and food, and ensuring that workers are protected from exploitation and abuse. Private sector players should also be proactive in addressing any grievances or concerns that their workers may have while working abroad in a joint cordinated effort in form of a private External labour power House. By taking responsibility for their workers' welfare and protection through an Adiministration governance of workers with a joint data base, private sector players can build a positive reputation and attract more clients, as well as help to contribute to the overall well-being of their workers and the communities they serve through:

1. Ensuring basic needs are met: Social security arrangements can help prevent poverty, hunger and homelessness, and ensure people have access to medical care and other basic needs. This can help attract more potential migrant workers who may be hesitant to move to a new location without these basic necessities. 2. Providing a sense of security: Welfare systems and social security arrangements can provide a sense of security to potential migrant workers, assuring them that they will not be left alone in difficult circumstances. 3. Encouraging legal migration: By acting as a legal alternative to trafficking, social security schemes and welfare measures can help encourage legal migration and discourage illegal and potentially dangerous means of seeking employment abroad. 4. Leveling the playing field: Without social security measures, only the most privileged migrants with access to financial and social networks stand a chance of finding secure employment overseas. Welfare schemes and social security measures can help level the playing field, allowing more people to access opportunities. 5. Supporting mental health: Migrants can be susceptible to mental health issues due to the stress of leaving their home, adjusting to a new culture, and adapting to a new work environment. Access to social security and welfare can provide support for those facing such challenges. 6. Reducing exploitation: Social security and welfare measures can help protect migrant workers from exploitation by unscrupulous employers. Without them, workers are more susceptible to abuse and mistreatment. 7. Encouraging economic growth: Migrant workers contribute significantly to the economies of both their home and host countries. Ensuring they are looked after through social security and welfare measures can help maximize their contributions, resulting in economic growth and increased prosperity. 8. Encouraging integration: Access to welfare schemes can improve the well-being of migrants, allowing them to integrate with local communities in a more meaningful way. 9. Preventing social unrest: Discontent amongst poor and struggling migrant workers can lead to social unrest and crime. Social security measures and welfare schemes can help alleviate some of these issues and prevent unrest. 10. Providing a safety net: In the event of unexpected circumstances such as unemployment or illness, social security and welfare measures can provide a safety net to ensure workers are not left destitute and without support. This can help attract more potential migrant workers who may be hesitant to move overseas without such support structures in place. ReplyForward
