Big ups to Carlo for showing me this video. It’s a good short doc that gives the basic situation of the employment problem in the Philippines. It also has a good analysis on the root of the problem and the plight Filipinos face everyday. This directly relates to us Filipino Americans since this problem is the exact reason why we’re here. Also, another negative aspect of exporting our labor is the abuse and mistreatment they face in their host countries. Though the doc shows how bad it is in the Philippines, it’s important to remember that the people are organizing themselves and fighting for a better future.
And yes, the #1 export of the Philippines is its people.
