The Philippines looks to protect migrants

The Philippines is looking to take steps to protect its migrant workers, one of the key contributors to its economic growth.

According to the International Labour Organization, there are more than 50 million domestic workers globally.

Some of these workers are mistreated and there are also concerns over the amount of money they are paid.

As a result, countries such as the Philippines, which has a large number of Filipinos working as domestic helpers in various countries, have been taking steps to try and protect their rights.
