Uganda: I'd rather clean toilets in Uganda

Once Upon Ish writes about odd jobs immigrants do in the Diaspora and the need to openly talk about AIDS: “For those of you who don't know, kyeyo refers to the odd jobs which immigrants from developing nations (legal and otherwise) do for a living in developed countries. You know, supermarket clerks and janitors and security guards and chefs. If this is you, you've made it in a country that has things like labour laws and minimmum wage and lots of escalators and you're happy, more power to you.”
