Educational attainment: FDH educational attainments were considered determinants in the migrant worker’s experience. Overall, Filipinos surveyed displayed higher educational levels than their Indonesian counterparts (see Chart 2). While half of Filipino respondents had at least a college degree (n=72), none of the Indonesians surveyed completed college or post graduate studies. Approximately 55 percent (n=69) of the Indonesian FDHs did not complete high school compared to only one Filipino respondent. In short, having higher levels of schooling seems to be associated with keener awareness and understanding for Hong Kong labor and immigration rights as well as basic human rights. This in turn appears to have positive outcomes on Filipino

working experiences abroad.
