Wasted years of time and thousands of pesos for education, for what? Crappy work?! Crappy pay?! Nothing that the Philippines can offer better among other countries. That’s why the OFW industry is booming every year. The only reason new graduates stay in this country is for a year or two of experience before heading out.
Now it shows that this country doesn’t have anything to offer, so sad seeing the truth, so many scientific inventions and discoveries (fluorescent light, Hydrogen-powered car, etc.) has been lost to other countries due to lack in support to Research and Development, Information Technology, Engineering, etc.
And the other and main problem of our country is the responsibility of every Filipino to correct. The corrupt politicians are in power because the people put them there. But this politician and its cohorts continue to steal because the people continue to allow them to do so and do not struggle to put them in prison.
When I was young I used to think that Marcos was the cause of our country’s woes. But 32 years, 5 administrations and 2 Popes later, I realized that it is “We“ the people who are really at fault, the problem, because we have allowed it to happen to us and to our children.
You may dislike, hate me or call me unpatriotic or traitor but that’s the painful truth of our country.
