Hussein Ismail Ramzown

In the last few decades, more and more countries became highly dependable on exporting there highly skilled and educated labor force to other rich countries in an exchange for the remittance they will receive through the money the migrant workers will send to their families in form of foreign currency. Such countries consider the such export as very essential element to implement local development plans. To evaluate such argument, three cases of labor exporting countries were examined (Yemen, Pakistan and Jordan who export workers to the Arab Oil Countries). The results indicated that, jobs and higher income were the main driving force behind migration, migrant workers in general spend most of their money on food, clothing, real estate, and building houses.
