ABSTRACT
The article presents information about Fijians who are leaving their country to work in Iraq and Kuwait. The companies helping to pacify and rebuild Iraq need workers, and Fijians need work: there are four school leavers for every available job. Men who join Fiji's 3,000-strong military can double their meager salaries by serving with United Nations' peacekeeping missions abroad.
