There are many factors that have lead Caribbean migrants living in the metropolitan countries to create a home away from home. For many it would be because of an increase in salary. Job opportunities or for an increase income would be one of the main reasons why Caribbean migrants migrate. Money is said to make the world go round, we need money to be able to survive. Choosing to go away to generate more income may be the best choice for the person making that decision and also a benefit to their family. One can also obtain a scholarship and in completing their degree can be offered a job that is well paid. Again money is involved and can be a key factor for migrating. Family can be a reason why one decides to settle away from home. For example the legal guardian of a child may file for their child or the person migrating feels that being around family members is more comforting. It may also be for a medical reason which the Caribbean does not have the resources for. Persons in the Caribbean may also migrate because the quality of living may be improved. Life there would be easier and relatively cheaper than that of the Caribbean. Also because one feels that the grass is greener on the other side they feel that they can create an image that leaving home was the best choice for them. On returning home, that is just visiting maybe on a holiday or for a special occasion one can now portray that I am doing way better off than when I use to stay here. Independence may be another reason why one may choose to migrate. Parents may be a reason why one migrates. Getting as far away as possible where they can’t control their life can be an option. One may have committed a crime which degrades them as a human being. Living in a society where people would always put you down can lead one to commit a crime to him/her. In that case one chooses to migrate to a place where they are not known and start a new life.
