Given the skills and competencies of HSWs and given labor demand, what are other occupational options that will afford decent work among HSWs? This study found that HSWs have opportunities for alternative occupational choices, many of which can provide them more decent income. Data, however, indicate that only a few HSWs possess certification of skills, or license for professional qualifications. Therefore, unless the skill profiles or professional qualifications of HSWs are upgraded, the alternative occupations will remain opportunities, not realities that will afford them more decent work—occupational mobility of HSWs will remain constrained.
