A Pakistani Bug's life in Italy

On my trip to Italy i found thousand and thousand of Pakistani bugs in Italy wondering for their life settlement...but the Italian society has made them confused enough that they are truly aliens, they d'nt have roots and culture, they are half Italian half Pakistanis, most of rather few less all of Pakistani immigrants are working as labor for Italian industry , where the highest salary of such a person is ranging from 1000 - 1500 Euro per month, it depends how hard work is it the salary will raise not more then 100 or 200 Euro, but unfortunately non of them make it to cross that 1500 Euro limits, now for a Pakistani it is almost 120 thousand rupees that is more then enough to be called a well settled family in their natives. But non of the societies i.e. Pakistani who force them to migrate Italy for earning more and more or the Italian who brought them into their industry and paying just upto their need, that is explained later, realized his stressed and meaningless life...

Now if one has to find out the background of this strange decision (Italian immigration) "I am sure a non-Pakistani will never understand the myth..." you have to look out the situation of these aliens in Pakistan, here i will give you an idea i.e.

Most of the Pakistanis here are just Matric (10 grade) passed or even less, they belongs to poor families those can not make their impression in Pakistani unsettled and artificial society, where theft is considered as smartness, a person who just came out of school or still in school, who see his family struggling to eat n dress well, they have very few things to joy, those few includes (Eid, walking in streets, movies (most fun is adults one), gay-ship, or at the peak fucking call-girls(that a Pakistani reader will never accept but yeah its true) or a kind of same level of joy etc.)

So when they are in schools or even not going to schools but they are just teen agers they see their relativies or neighborers who's son/brother has moved to Italy and now they are so called settled family in words of mouth, he is inspired, from then he and his family tries to send him to Italy(Europe) now when they try calling and praising their relatives to take their son with him to Italy most of the people fail to do so, so at the end they have to take services of an illegal immigration consultants, those very easily available in Pakistan, today normal rate of a single head's illegal immigration is somewhere near 20,000USD, you can imagine how this money is going to be arranged by this poor family, most of the time they sell their agricultural lands or living house etc. while the actual cost of an illegal immigrant from consultant's/broker pocket is just not more than 100USD so you can imagine the level of earning here...

Now actual story starts when people pay their all to immigration consultant/broker... where a Pakistani Citizen become Pakistani Bug... i.e.

When such kind of a person reaches Italy, the immigration consultant/broker submit his case to labor department of Italy and ask candidate to wait till you get work permit, now problem starts...as the Bug (new immigrant) has no work permit and he has already given his all money to brokers he needs to work, so he try to find an illegal work place where he can get small amount of money against his work, sometime the payment of such work is even less then 4 to 5 hundred Euros a month, while broker ask Bug to live his life on his own, means Bug has to arrange a living room(mostly shared by as many as room can accupy), he need telephone connection, he also might need to eat two or even one time...if you have an idea regarding expenses in Europe you could imagine the situation this new Bug has created for himself. Now the situation goes worst when he came to know that labor department of Italy may take a year or so to grant him work permit (Big Bang), he find himself in a situation where he cant even complaint about his status/life/etc.

Italian labour Department with the help of those fake broker in real fuckup this Bug....

According to one of senior immigration consultant/broker there are around 300 to 350 thousand of such Pakistani Bugs in Italy waiting for their chance to endup with legal work permit, now you will amaze when you come to know that even if the Bug gets legal work permit after 2 or 3 years in normal cases, he even then is just able to earn 1000 to 1200 Euro a month, that give him a chance to live below standard life while save just around 2 to 3 hundred Euros a month to send them back in support of his family.

I have seen more than few dozen myself such Bugs that they are still working to make enough money to visit Pakistan (their home) even after 10 years of struggle...

would you mind to be a Pakistani Bug in Italy ?

@cole.burn: the idea of this post is larger than your thinking, for sure.

it's not your fault. you are standing for people called bugs while at the same time using disgusting words about the author. is it not hypocracy dude?

anyway, my tip for you is to remain silent when you cannot say something good!
