This paper is a case study of Multinational workforce in Global megacities.
Taking Pakistan as a case it provides historical background to the outflow of
Pakistani labour force in the Gulf and its current composition. The paper also
briefly dwells on the future outlook for the concept of multi-national workforce.
On the whole the paper tries to analyze the size and structural composition of
Pakistani labour force in the Gulf. The analysis is based on nearly 40 years of
data gleaned from the records of the official Bureau of Emigration and other
sources including surveys carried out by Gallup Pakistan during this period. It
also looks at different phases in the evolution of Pakistani labour force in the
Gulf, the push and pull factors which cause the labour to migrate, factors which
sustain the flow and an outlook on the future.
