I have been teaching part-time in the Human Resource Management Program of De La Salle College of St. Benilde for the past six years. Every year, young men and women enroll in my class for a variety of reasons. Some of them are already dead set on pursuing a career in HR; others are still in the process of discovery. All of them hope that when they graduate, they will have what it takes to make it in the real world.

I’ve written before of how we Filipinos have become masters at making things more difficult for ourselves than need be.

With a scant eight session days to go, Congress has much it can do. Let’s hope it acts, as there’s been too many bills pending for too long.
My interest, of course, is business and the economy because these underpin everything else and, hence, are what I consider the most important for the government, all branches, to focus on to give Filipinos a decent life. Filipinos can only have a decent life if they aren’t poor. They can only be not poor by having an income. Jobs, either in a small personal business or working for someone, are the only way to provide that income. So an 8-day focus on job- and income-creating bills is what Congress should do.
