Introduction Globalization has made migrating for work a reality. While opening up national borders as a result of free trade agreements across countries, enabling the free flow of goods and services, creating global outsourcing, and triggering the growth of international corporations and organizations, globalization has simultaneously created work opportunities for many seeking employment abroad (Felker 2003; Marsh et al. 1999; Tsai and Tsay 2004). It has been argued by some scholars that globalization has had an uneven impact on the countries of the developing world. East and Southeast Asia, however, have been presented as counter-evidence, showing that these regions have largely benefited from economic global trends (Apodaca 2002). Primarily, it has been shown that with globalization came fluidity in the international economy, resulting in a wide range of jobs (Gereffi and Sturgeon 2004).
