Why do Nepalese emigrate? A role of business related factors: Empirical analysis

International migration is considered as a livelihood in Nepal, as millions of families depend majorly on the remittances sent back by their families abroad. Such circumstances have led many studies and researchers to determine poverty as the main driver of Nepalese emigration. However, the following empirical study suggests long working hours and job dissatisfaction in the country to drive a stronger motivation for Nepalese to flee under any circumstances for foreign employment. Given that unemployed and poorly educated population emigrate for remittance, the working population on the other hand are also motivated to internationally migrate due to discontentment in their working environment. The study shows statistical proof on the strong relationship between long working hours, job dissatisfaction and emigration intention of the Nepalese.
