Not the right time to be an OFW in the Middle East

With all the trouble that's brewing in the Middle East right now, I really do not think that this is the right time to consider being an OFW, if you're not already there. Sure, jobs over there, whether it's a health related job, a finance job, a construction related job or a job in the hospitality segment, usually pay higher than the same jobs over here, and under normal circumstances, notwithstanding the fact that you have to suffer homesickness and loneliness while there, is a good choice. But with the unrest there, your life may be at stake just because you're there for money. Your family needs YOU more than the money that you will earn by risking your life.

This is simply not the right time to be there right now.
