Of these, the migrant worker from Madura is around 70%. They come from 4 regencies, namely Bangkalan, Sampang, Pamekasan and Sumenep. Based on these facts, this article wants to analyze the motives and their processes to become migrant workers. Specifically, the purpose of this research is to explore the motives behind the Madurese to become migrant workers. This study also wants to analyze the process of becoming migrant worker. Furthermore, this research wants to know what skills are prepared and needed by migrant workers before going abroad. This informant is a migrant worker from Pamekasan Regency.
