Abstract


The goal of the research is to examine the behavior of migrant workers and PADMI. The research is
located in Eastern Malaysia and East Lombok Regency by using case study method to explore the
objects deeply, detailed and complete. Data were collected through observation and in-depth interview
with the migrant workers and PADMI. The research showed that Ringgit or Malaysian currency
contribute significant influence to the migrant workers’ behavior, which showed by the change of their
fashion style, pattern of consumption, increasing entertainment needs and also the augmentation of
consumptive life style. The consumptive life style is a new reality and relatively common, while to fulfill
sexual needs the workers opted to marry the other female migrant workers because it was considered
more save, more economical and also could prevent them from the contamination of sexual disease.
At the other side, PADMI has not only principal role in fulfilling the family life needs but also must
attempt to maintain the completeness and harmony of the family/household. The inclination of having
seductive and sexual discomfiture from the other man is experienced often by PADMI, and sometimes
could be ended in court. Without considering the economic impact, the high number of sued divorce in
hometown of migrant workers gave evidence that migration activity ruin the family life of the migrant
workers.
