Favila: No job crisis; Filipinos just choosy

THE PHILIPPINES is not lacking in work opportunities, but unemployed Filipinos are just fussy about the jobs that come their way, Trade Secretary Peter Favila said yesterday… “Some Filipinos have a tendency to aspire to be the vice president immediately upon hiring or they want to be able to pick the time and place of work. Those who can’t get what they want choose to just wait till their ideal job falls on their lap,” Favila said.

Ouch.

    they have a point, but I don’t think Favila was talking about the same demographic. maybe he should have been more specific when he said Filipinos.

    i totally agree. my friend’s sister has been at home for almost a decade now since graduation. she obviously had so many offers, some were lucrative ones, and those were all sa Pinas, not abroad. she simply is choosy to a fault. i also know of a family who’s into networking, and they’re not complaining no matter how much ridicule they get from snotty neighbors. they just work. and with newspapers riding on the phony “pulse asia” polls, i’d rather agree with favila than get brainwashed by a daily printing the pulse asia report which indicates that “this percentage of Filipinos think…” percentage? filipinos? the respondents were 1,000 individuals whose identities and domiciles were undisclosed… the exaggerated pulse asia clearly is speaking for the millions of filipinos.
