President Aquino has no plans to solve unemployment

By

I wanted to hear (and I’m sure millions of other Filipinos did, too) President Aquino say in his State of the Nation Address last Monday how he intends to solve the acute unemployment problem in the Philippines. But beyond saying that an additional 1,165 million Filipinos were employed from April 2013 to April 2014, there was nothing more. Yet unemployment is our biggest problem and the cause of widespread poverty. Solve it and you also solve a lot of other problems.

Educated, unemployed

By

Columnist Randy David is absolutely correct in saying: “The larger problem, as many see it, stems primarily from a mismatch between what the educational system prepares young people for, and the kind of jobs the economy offers. I, too, have always believed that a modern society must promote a coupling of the two systems—but without reducing education to a sheer tool of the economy.”

One-fourth have no real job

By

Last May 19, SWS reported that the Jobless are 25.7 percent of the labor force, according to the nationwide Social Weather Survey for the first quarter of 2014. The Jobless respondents were those who, when interviewed over March 27-30, said that they had no job, and that they were looking for one. The labor force is, by definition, the sum of the Jobless and those who said they had jobs.
