Name someone who deserves more credit than they get. And for bonus points, how to change things so they get more.
Living in a third-world country, and more specifically living in the Philippines, it is common knowledge that the blue-collar workers do not really earn a lot. Minimum wage in the Philippines is less than 400php for 8 hours of work, from what I know. That’s less than $10 and less than 8euros. Imagine that!
Therefore, I think these blue-collar workers (or basically any person who is already in the workforce) and not getting paid enough should deserve more credit than they get. The guards, janitors, garbage men, public school teachers, etc etc etc. If they were to go to another country, they would receive better pay and I guess that’s why a lot of Filipinos try to look for jobs abroad.
I really do hope the new government would do something about this. I recently read that DOLE promises more job openings this year, and I hope that would be helpful and beneficial to a lot of Filipinos here in the Philippines.
