Our Wage Earners

Supported by Matador Stationary
Lesson: 26

A huge number of Bangladeshis go abroad for jobs. There is always a high demand of workers in some foreign countries like UAE, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, etc. They like Bangladeshi workers because they are hard working. But this is a matter of regret that our workers are doing odd jobs. As a result, they are not paid much. This is because our workers are not good at English, Arabic, or other languages. So, we should develop language skills of our workers for the countries they go for work. If they can develop their language skills, they can get good gobs and send more money to our country. Thus the wage earners of our country can help develop our economy.
